        Release Notes: This version fixes a couple of problems where some streaming radio stations wouldn't work, and a problem where the SlimServer Web interface would be really really slow. It suppresses a warning on tracks that have a disk number but not a size of set tag, fixes a bug where the current time isn't displayed properly for transcoded files, updates the Fishbone skin, fixes up FLAC support, adds slimserver.strings.txt support, fixes a confusing warning when doing Squeezebox firmware updates, fixes a typo where ID3v1 tags would include a genre called "bebob", and adds back missing TIme::HiRes libraries.
