    Version 1.0
    • Release Date: Nov 14, 2007
    • Release Date: Nov 6, 2007
    Version Public Preview 3
    • Release Date: Nov 1, 2007
    • On Windows, Miro will now generate thumbnails for any file that you download or add to your library. It makes for a much nicer browsing experience. If a channel already provides a thumbnail for a video, Miro will show that instead.
    • Miro now shows the channel icon instead of the generic video icon each video in a channel. It’s a simple change that makes a big difference.
    • If you search for a video in your Library or a channel and then start playing it, Miro will remember the search term when you stop playing the video. Fixes a small annoyance.
    • Miro now has the ability to add alternate channel guides and initiate individual video downloads with a 1-click button. We’ll be putting up 1-click button makers for these features soon and we’ll be integrating this functionality into the Miro Guide.
    • We’ve spent some time improving the first-time user experience. When you run Miro for the first time, you’ll see this page which has a quick video overview and you’ll be able to subscribe to some batches of channels on specific themes, like Sports, News, Food, etc. We hope it will help new users get their bearings a little more easily.
    • At the request of video bloggers, we’ve put a ‘permalink’ below the video playback area. This makes it easy to go to that video post and leave a comment. Someday we’d love to have integrated commenting.
    • Some install functionality that makes our Co-Branded Miro service possible.
    • Compatibility with OSX Leopard and Ubuntu Gutsy.
    • Lots of bug fixes and small tweaks.
