AFAIK, Mike keeps the platforms in lockstep wrt release and features.
I know each time I go to use it I have to update. Note that his forum
is not setup to show edit dates on posts, only the original post date,
so that may be misleading. He doesn't keep release dates in his
history, but you can see them here:

When not ripping, I would prefer to be able to loop-mount a virtual
volume upon disc insertion that is decrypted on-the-fly as used,
rather than using the (lame) streaming function.
