  I'm pleased to announce the release of Python-BRisa-Applications version 0.1.

What is Python-BRisa Apps

Python-BRisa Apps is a set of UPnP applications built using
Python-BRisa UPnP framework. The current set is composed by three
applications, all concerning UPnP Audio/Video [1]:

- brisa-media-server: UPnP A/V Media Server 1.0 implementation [1]
with addition of a plugin architecture. Allows users to share
multimedia items over UPnP with almost zero-configuration

- brisa-media-server-plugins: Customization plugins for
brisa-media-server (Youtube, Flickr, Shoutcast, Maemo Multimedia)

- brisa-media-renderer: UPnP A/V Media Renderer 1.0 [1] implementation
using gstreamer. Enables a machine to render media from any server,
when controlled with some control point*

* For the curious, there are common third-party control points that
can control a running server and renderer: Media Streamer (Maemo
devices - N8x0), GUPnP, Cidero and many others.

Python-BRisa Apps runs on the maemo platform, Linux and on Mac with a
few tweaks. We would really appreciate community feedback, bug reports
and feature requests concerning attempts to run it on other systems.
