UPnP MediaServer KIO Slave is OUT!

I’ve released the first version of the UPnP MediaServer KIO slave which allows KDE applications to seamlessly browse UPnP devices on the network, and access their files. An outcome of my Google Summer of Code, this is the first step towards getting UPnP Collection support into Amarok. For now, the slave is meant for application developers since dolphin & co. in KDE 4.5 do not directly know how to launch it.

The recommended way to detect UPnP devices and invoke the slave is with Cagibi. To browse the device, run konqueror with the URL “upnp-ms://” where UUID is something like


which has been retrieved from Cagibi
