It's almost summertime in the Northern Hemisphere which means the weather's getting warmer, car windows are going down, electro-disco is going up, and we're eagerly anticipating summer blockbusters like Iron Man 2 and Robin Hood.
While you're waiting for the season to change (no matter what hemisphere you're in), check out Boxee's latest additions.
<------------!!! NEW FEATURES !!!------------>
/ / FILE IDENTIFICATION PROGRESS / /
Easily see how many files Boxee is scanning, has identified, and doesn't recognize within your media shares. Check the status from any menu sidebar (TV shows, Movies, Music) or from the Media menu (Settings -> Media).
/ / MANUAL MOVIE & TV SHOW IDENTIFICATION / /
Help Boxee identify your personal media by telling it what's in your collection. To change incorrectly labeled files select the movie or TV show, then click the "drivers license with a circle in the top right corner" on on the right end of the pop-up menu.
Find and identify unresolved files by going to the Files menu, and selecting the "unresolved" folder from the bottom of the list. Select files and follow the instructions above to label them properly. You'll now be able to put in movie names and TV show seasons and episodes to ensure your collection is pristine.

In addition to pushing out your recommendations to social networks, you can now also pull in recommendations from your friends on Facebook & Twitter. Shared videos appear automatically in your feed with an icon on the right to let you know where they came from.
