"My favorite media center software, boxee, has just released a new alpha update for Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 users and Apple TV users. This update, which the boxee team classifies as bleeding-edge (which means, if you don't want to deal with any potential bugs, wait for the more stable release scheduled for March 24, 2009) adds the "App Box" -- boxee's version of the App Store, automatic updates, and most excitingly, a new video-optimized RSS reader."
In addition, you can use the new RSS reader to access the Hulu's public RSS feeds directly from Boxee. If you recall, two weeks ago Boxee was forced to remove Hulu from it's service, but the hackers were on top of it and came up with a workaround. That didn't last long though before it was broke, so they fixed it again. And again.
The process for adding content has gotten easier apparently, and if you are interested in loading up this latest version you can head over to Boxee for it. I would love to see this on the Apple TV but I'm just not comfortable hacking mine. I may end up doing it soon though if some quality updates don't come through for it from Apple.
