The team over at Plex today announced the release of Plex 0.8.3, an update to their media center software for the Mac. New features in this version of the software include a revamped shutdown options menu, Mixdown Volume Boost for AC3 and DTS audio, captions for iPhoto photos, support for one-click install of plug-ins, ratings support for plug-ins, context menus in plug-ins, support for auto-refresh in directories, toggle to full screen option in Dock menu, and integration of code from IOSPIRIT to improve support for the Apple Remote in Snow Leopard. This ties into the release of Candelair that we mentioned about last week.
According to the release notes, Plex 0.8.3 also includes the following fixes:
Fixes 5.1 audio issues in Snow Leopard.
