Serviio Version 1 Released.

It's been a long wait, but 1.0 has finally landed. This major release brings a split of Serviio into two editions, Free and Pro. Download the Pro edition, evaluate for 15 days and if you like the added features, buy it. If you do not feel like going Pro, Serviio will revert to the Free edition - but do not worry, it still includes all the features previously released and more.

The Pro edition has some nice features, like web based MediaBrowser, that will enable you to browse and watch your content from wherever you are. The piece of software that enables this (API) is available to developers and there are already some apps that take advantage of it.

Another useful feature in Pro edition is Access Groups. This will enable you to restrict access to some of your content for certain devices and can therefore be useful in families, etc.

There is also a much sought after support for (local) playlists, proper aspect ratio handling and much more.

As always, thanks go to the testers, translators and guys helping at the forum.

Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did making it.
