Centova Cast v3.0.5 Now Available

The following is a complete list of changes included in Centova Cast v3.0.5:

Critical updates

  • Fixed an issue that may cause playlist schedules to shift by one hour when daylight savings time (aka "summer time" or "winter time") begins or ends.  As we are quickly approaching the end of daylight savings for many regions, we recommend updating immediately.
