Re: Twonky 8.5.1 released NOTED IMPROVEMENT for RPi

Compliments to the programmers who updated Twonky Server to 8.5.1 for the Raspberry Pi (Raspbian).
Previously, with version 8.5, if the RPi were rebooted and the Twonky Service started automatically, there was an error displayed on all clients when they tried to use the Twonky service: "You are not logged in." As a kludge, I had written a script to copy the license file to a certain location. With the 8.5.1 version, this is no longer necessary.
Thanks again to the team,

looks like the German part of Lynx Technology where all the Twonky Server developers are located is shut down now :shock: . Bad news - no more updates, no bug fixes, no more new features for the Twonky Server. Keeping my fingers crossed that my server will just run fine :?
