Plex brings redesigned PlexWeb, Windows 8 app updates, iPad mini sync and more

Plex's busy bees have sweetened the media server / client honeypot again with new updates, including a "giant, thundering" update of the Plex/Web UI featuring a redesigned home screen and easier navigation. It also has a new version of its next-gen transcoder for the Windows 8 and PlexSync apps -- with iOS, Android and Plex/Web versions promised soon -- which brings better performance and improved support for subtitle burn-in, according to the outfit. Other features include a new iPad mini sync profile, better keyboard navigation, a media info popup and numerous bug fixes.
