SoftRAID 5.5, SoftRAID Lite 5.5 Update (new features and fixes)
The SoftRAID download page has v5.5 of both versions (as well as features comparison list). Due to length, I've posted a separate page with the complete release notes/list of new features and bug fixes for the full 5.5 version. (Many also apply to the v5.5 Lite version - see PDF in the download.)
Other News, Updates, Reviews:

(BTW: Firmware update 1005.0 released for Samsung UBD-K8500 (4K/UHD) Player released, hopefully to fix problems some users had with the quickly pulled v1004. Audio/HT page has Samsung K8500 settings and tips.)
