What's new in this version:
- NEW: Massive performance improvements in scanning engine. We took things apart and put them back together again, and scanning should be much faster. Like much faster. You'll notice it especially when scanning item-heavy sections like music. Speaking of music, we just pushed an much-improved Last.FM agent as well. Oh, and we also pushed a new Scanner which fixed an issue reading ID3 tags. So lots of love for music this release.

"Great alternative to iTunes/ATV"
Version: Plex Media Server 0.9.6.5
I have a Roku on one of my older TVs which I couldn't justify replacing just because of HD etc. I did want netflix on this set and missed the feature that AppleTV offers in letting me play movies and music from my Mac. Plex lets me do just that.
The initial setup was a little complicated in the server finding all the songs and movies I directed it to, but it does let you set how often it rescans the library. The Roku didn't automatically find the server. I had to enter the IP address.
Once set up, this worked as advertised and I am able to view my Mac's videos (not from iTunes store) and music library (again, not iTunes bought) on my older TV using a Roku. Bliss.
