It's out!!!

Unofficial release notes:

Quote:
- Smart DJ
- Native AVI and XVID support
- Marketplace on TV-Out
- Picks on-device
- Artist view and now playing feature multiple artist background pictures, rather than just one, now.
- Overall performance increases. Faster thumbnail loading and smoother animations.
- Faster, better browser. Large web pages that would previously have crashed the browser now load, you can zoom in further on images without blurring, and tap-to-zoom works better.
- You can now sort your favorites by date added or alphabetically.
- You can rename your browser favorites. Press and hold a favorite then click "rename".
- You can save pictures of a webpage to your device. Press and hold on any non-link part of a webpage to do so. You can do the same for individual images!
- It now warns you that deleting your browser history takes forever.
- In artist view, you can now play all albums or songs, or add them to now playing.
- In the marketplace, you can see more than 3 of an artist's top songs.
- Playlists now have a transparent background in Quickplay.
