Boxee Announces Public Alpha for Mac and Apple TV Users

Posted by: Glenn

Boxee today released the first public alpha of their media center software for Mac and Apple TV users. New applications in this release include Joost, MTV Music, and the BBC iPlayer for users in the UK. It also includes new keyboard support and numerous bug fixes and enhancements. The specific changes are all listed down below. Boxee also launched developer.boxee.tv today, which provides basic guidelines for developers who want to build apps to run on Boxee.

The new keyboard support includes:

  CMD + TAB - lets you switch to other Mac apps (even when boxee is in full screen)

  CMD + F - toggles between Window mode and Full screen.

  Shift + letter - jump to the place in the list that starts with that letter (e.g. shift+h will save you a bunch of clicks to get to Heroes on Hulu)

Bug fixes and enhancements include:

  Dual screen support

  Netflix streaming improvements

  Search in Hulu

  Fast forward, rewind, pause in Comedy Central

  Improved mouse support

  3 digits episode numbers recognized

  Giving folder.jpg its proper priority
