    Just installed it, looks promising! The icons are actually not bad at all!

    All in all it seems speedier.

    Has the default sound when moving/clicking changed? Any other changes besides some icons?

    The movies icon looks bad in photos but it's nice on the actual display

    Has it solved the jidder problems or the issue of Netflix being cut off sometimes when using wifi? :)

    Can you post a picture of what homesharing looks like in the "computers" app? I'd like to see if the list view has changed.

    Interesting.
    It's not the full refresh I was hoping for but it's a step in the right direction at least.

    Are you also having an issue using Airplay? I had the beta installed for a few days, and loved it!, but I reverted back to the consumer version because no matter what I tried my Apple TV wouldn't show up on any of my devices. I know it's not a hardware issue, as Airplay is working again with the old software.

    ----------

    It's mostly cosmetic, but while using it, I noticed a slight speed boost. The interface animations also seemed smoother.

    I'm also having issues; my ATV's AirPlay cannot be recognised by any of my devices - hopefully Apple fixes this big issue very soon.

    I've also found 2 other users from 9to5Mac with this same AirPlay problem!

    I've now downgraded to the previous (7.1.2 I believe) with an iTunes restore, and AirPlay is indeed working again - as tjwilliams said. Very annoying as I felt the new interface was slicker.

    We can only hope it's fixed soon! :mad:
