Latest developmentsEdit

Firefly Media Server is not under active development, although there have been a few attempts to resurrect it. There has been an abortive effort to continue this project as Firefly2 Media Server without any developers coming forward, however the old forums and links to many forked versions are available at the new website. Since July 2009, development continues on a Linux/FreeBSD fork named forked-daapd. The latest version of forked-daapd is v27.0.
