        Release Notes: It is now possible to join torrents from any RSS feed without the need for special XML formatting in the feed. If the RSS entry has a torrent URL within it and no torrent enclosure XML in the actual feed, it will parse out the torrent URL and make it possible to join it. Air America Radio Archive was added to the list of torrent-enabled feeds. A segfault that prevented MythBrowser from being reconnected to the program was fixed.
