In addition to managed rooms (the new name for ‘controlled rooms’), the second beta includes a major new feature that allows for viewers to indicate that they are ready to watch. Please let us know what you think by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
To accommodate this change, the interface has also been re-worked. Check out the “Window” menu item if you want to bring playback controls back into the main window.
