Miro 1.2 update is out with the latest Mozilla 1.9

Miro, the open source Mozilla-based video player and aggregator has been updated to version 1.2. Most notable is the update to XUL Runner 1.9 based on Mozilla 1.9, the latest and still in development version of the Mozilla platform. Apparently, the PCF found it stable enough (like Firefox 3, is it currently in Beta 4 status) to make the switch and will benefit from the solid performance improvements discussed before.

More changes:

  • We’ve added a much-requested preference to set new channels to not auto-download.
  • New preferences for tweaking number of simultaneous auto-downloads and torrent seeding.
  • Important re-architecting of the frontend and backend code.
  • Lots of bug fixes and tweaks.
  • On OSX, we updated to Perian 1.1.
  • On Windows, the Miro installer is now much simpler and prettier.
  • Improved support for Flash in Channel Guide pages.
  • Improved translations for dozens of languages.

  1. If Miro should have the same performance improvements as Firefox 3 why does it still use this much memory AND doesn’t give it back? It is using 327MB private bites and 401MB commit. It is sitting in the systemtray right now and I think it should be using no more than 32MB with all it’s helper processes combined.
    I really hope that the next really will get the same memory improvements as Firefox 3. I really love the speed improvement though.

  2. Ive trawled the forums , excuse if this post isnt in correect place. backing up your data seems to be ommited. if your rss stream goes down there only seems one option and that is reinstalling the rss feed. a 1 click option would be favourable in the next release…stick a brilliant app, but like the rest of you the memory usage is heavy..
