Is serviio still under active development?

Hello,
when I look at serviio's release history, it looks as if release activity has slowed down quite a bit. Unless I have overlooked something, there has never been a moment in the past where more than a year passed between two releases. But at the time of writing there has been no new release since May 2020, with version 2.1, which itself was the first release to take almost a year. 2019 seems to have been the first year with just a single release. Before that, there always were several releases per year. This looks like slowly phasing out the development of serviio. I hope that this is not true, but that's what it looks like to me.

Re: Is serviio still under active development?

Serviio is not a company, but a single person. As everyone knows, the last 18 months have been a real gut slam for most people. I do know that the developer is not abandoning Serviio, but life simply got in the way recently. I don't know his timeline, but I do know the future versions are still planned.

Thanks! I guess, the feature I most hope he has on his screen is the ability to play Opus audio. Else, Serviio mostly does everything I want, but missing Opus support is a real limitation...

Re: Is serviio still under active development?

Shortly after I posted my response yesterday, the developer has let the beta testers that a new version is coming out soon. For reasons I can't publicly say, there will be a new version before the end of the month.

I can't say of Opus audio support is included. However, audio codec support is usually a function of the player, not the server. Is it that you are using a player that doesn't support Opus, and you need Serviio to transcode it?
