When I got home today, my apple TV informed me that a new update was available. This new update, version 2.4, was made available. Below is a table summarizing the new features made available in this release. The remote control from iphone is interesting, I played with it and its to use. The updated transport is a good fix, as during playback the clicking right used to accelerate (annoyingly) to a new chapter instead of fast forwarding. I hope to make use of this during the upcoming weekend.
