The answer is right there, on the 1st thread so it's obvious you did not search. If something changed, this thread, or any of the sticky threads that mention this, would be updated.
Thats why they are stickied.
And who's to say it's not for new guys to solve? This is open source, you can read the xbmc code and submit a patch to get MMS working on the ATV2, this is quite encouraged (thanks dazex, for doing exactly that with universal remote support!) in this community.
And yes, answering the same question over and over is a burden, for the reasons roygbiv highlighted.
No more of this back and forth, let's keep this productive.
I'd like to take another moment to thank all the devs that are part of XBMC team.
Without you guys, not only would XBMC not exist but especially this port. And everyone who helps answer questions, post fixes and especially tries to write patches. Everyone who lends a hand in the community is who makes up this community and I'm proud to help in any way I can.
And if you don't have time/energy to participate, there's always one surefire way to help out:

thanks, I take it that's more up to date than the official release.

Actually, I think the latest official build 10.0.7 is newer than the latest nightly on this thread.
Basically, in reading the front page of the site, it looks like the devs will hold off on making much additional changes until the code can be merged into the main trunk. So, that would probably mean that the nightlies will not have much action for now. I'm sure keith will update when a new nightly is available.

Then what version are people talking about? "Keith's version" thats fixing everyone's problems ??

Between the official drops (the latest of which was 3 days or so ago), Keith does a build anytime there are changes committed to git. The last nightly that I know of is dated 2/17. I for one have found Keith's builds to be immensely valuable in tying me over between the official builds.
Not sure what you are asking, but, if you want the nightly builds, you can look at the first post. Keith is quite diligent in tracking any changes and updating the post when appropriate.
I hope you're not thinking that Keith has a separate version. What he is doing is simply building the latest into a deb for us to install and test out. Sometimes (usually) the nightlies will resolve some user's issue, and that's why you'll see an exclamatory statement here and there, e.g. hovnarr.

Couldn't have said it better myself, dacapo.
The XBMC guys made it clear that 10.0-7 will be the last official for awhile, most likely until the merge happens.
For all of you that don't know, what this basically means is in order to make xbmc-ios, they have branched the code so they can work on XBMC-IOS without affecting the normal progression of XBMC dev cycle. Now they XBMC-IOS is working good, that branch needs to be brought back to Trunk, mainline or master, but all means the same thing. It's essentially bringing all software back under one branch, merging everything together.
(if that doesn't make sense, click on the Trunk and Branched links to read more about how this work)
So now is some of the most difficult parts because the devs need to care about how any changes they make affect other platforms and make sure everything they merge doesn't break anything, everywhere.
Keep in mind XBMC officially runs on OSX/Intel, OSX/PPC, Linux, Windows and soon to be iOS. Not counting the bits of code laying around for LiveCD, beagleboard and various other things. It's a MASSIVE undertaking and I can't think another project this open and large that does so much and has this many dependencies and hardware supported. (Besides Linux itself, but XBMC takes much longer to compile than the Linux kernel!)
Once this is done, there will be an automated buildbot to 'take over' what I've helped with. Doesn't mean all the work is done!
I'm sure everyone wants to see the XBMC-IOS branch be as stable as an xbox (well maybe not Davilla since he never used XBMC on an xbox haha) so testing will still need to be done, bugs will need squashing and like always, forum posts will be need to be answered so everyone wins.
I'm still unsure if I will be building anything during the merge really it's up to the devs if they think it's worthwhile.
I'm still in amazement how far the project has came, in less than a month! The entire port in less than 5 months! Incredible.
I may sound like a broken record since I feel like I thank the devs every other post, but I wish I could explain how incredible this is, as anyone who has had experience with software development cycles can probably attest too.
So thanks. Every person who made it happen, there's still a long ways to go, but I use it everyday and don't cuss at it nearly as much as everything else I use to display media and that makes all the difference in the world.

Issue, why is audio streaming through HDMI when I have settings put to optic? I receive sound through optic too, but have to put down volume on TV. Do you have a code for the issue I can try with?
