While 320x320 users (Treo Pro, 800w, Epix, i780, Saga) and newer resolutions like 800x480 (Sony Xperia) have been suffering without any SlingPlayer support, we're getting word that may be ending very soon.

We're hearing that the latest version, which will update resolution support and perhaps other performance issues, has just entered private beta testing. Hmm...maybe this update will finally bump it to v2.0 along with their desktop software? One can hope at least.

Furthermore, we can tentatively expect an official update by the end of the month, right in time for the holidays.

For those wanting to lend Sling a hand, you can always sign up for their beta program here.
