Thank you for all your work.
This is still the best homebrew software for the PS3.
I hope Movian can grow in Raspberry in the future.
I think it's speed and simplicity can beat feature packed solutions like Kodi.
Showtime keeps things simple. Few cliks and you can access your movies, audio, pictures.
Please keep that in mind when rethinking the GUI in future versions. Less sometimes is more :)
Peace.

"Less is more" is my main guidance for the new UI.

Will you please add RTL anytime soon? Your work is amazing and would be perfect if you just had this one core feature for all us Arab and Israeli users alike.
