Please note that sometimes, due to timing issues, the plugin will show as not installed successfully. This is a cosmetic error that I will fix in the near future (it’s actually a bug in Volumio; it uploads the plugin multiple times). <- should be fixed, I will investigate!

Alpha testing was successful, plugins can also be installed.

The first start of the service might take a few seconds, please be patient. Also, the button to open a new tab for the LMS web-interface only works with Volumio 2.296+.

NB: A Squeezelite plugin has been released today (11-09-2017)
