The very first release of SwissCenter was on this day 10 years ago!

Since it’s early days of being designed specifically for use with a Pinnacle ShowCenter it has evolved with features to be compatible with a range of players from various companies upto the Popcorn Hour 200 series of players. Over this time the players have evolved to be able to play a wider range of media formats for which SwissCenter has been continually updated to handle. It all started with basic media playback but soon evolved into a media experience whereby SwissCenter would get additional media information from the internet to provide fanart and details about your movies, TV series, and even music artists/albums. Additional online services were also added to play internet radio, movie trailers, etc.

For a free open-source project like this to last for 10 years is quite an achievement, which wouldn’t be possible without the support and enthusiasm of it’s users.

I was hoping to have ready an anniversary release for this day, but as usual was not possible due to other commitments. Development is still progressing though, just not quickly, and there are still a few new features I’d like to complete and get released.
