Miro 0.9.8

The Democracy Media Player is now known as Miro, following user feedback that the name was misleading. The new name should be without any political intrigue, and although a Google search for the term "miro" yields their official website at the sixth spot, over time it should gain PageRank and move up in the listings.

I downloaded the preliminary version that they're calling "Public Preview". It looks pretty much identical to Democracy, with the same Apple-esque interface and the same features as before. However, their website states that there are many small changes, including a memory leak fix. You can get the latest use at the Miro blog.

Good luck to those at the Participatory Software Foundation with Miro!
