Following up on v0.08n, deank officially labled v1.09 as a Beta Release as several new things were implemented and went through some testing phases.

Developer DeViL303 is always looking at ways to tweak and enhance the PS3 XMB for PS3 Custom Firmware user's as we have witnessed with project such as XMB Package Downloader (XMBPD) & webMAN Launchpad and also his work with teammates of XMB Manager Plus (XMBM+) and this latest release for the XMB gives us the ability to swap out a pre-arranged boot_plugin.txt files to enabled and disable some ps3 plugins. While they are pre-arranged options they can be customized by the user's giving you 5 quick combinations for your plugin changing needs.

Take note this release uses COBRA's (boot_plugin.txt) method of loading plugins & also requires webMAN MOD for this new functional XMB mod to work. ​
Since the recent advancement in COBRA CFW (payload) thanks to one of deank additions that made playing games from a backup disc possible saving some HDD space for those wanting to keep your originals in good standing but may not have the space to hold your collection. It was only a matter of time before we started see some tools that would be designed with this new feature in mind and long time friend of psx-place developer psykosis has released Mr. Burns. This simple app is based on makeps3iso by developer estwald (Iris Manager's dev aka Hermes), the toll will convert a folder format (JB folder) to an ISO file and then will call imgburn to then burn your ISO to a disc and playable on Cobra 7.52 +.
We seen the recent progress of OpenPS3FTP a couple months back as developer jjolano has made a return after a stint away from the ps3 homebrew development, but now the developer has made the application into a PS3 plugin (sprx). Since the release of v4.2 we seen the ability to have 10+ simultaneous connections with stability and that stability should present itself in this plugin. Also a POC feature has been added that will allow other VSH plugins and developer's to add their own custom commands from this interface within the plugin. More details about this release can be seen in the provided details.​
One of many legends in the PS3 Homebrew Community developer deank is back with a new progression of the sMAN plugin. We all know deank from projects like multiMAN, webMAN and now the sMAN plugin that has appeared to perhaps replaced (?) the original webMAN (aka webMAN Vanilla) project as now a new feature will allow you to choose between old style of "My Games" with the "XML" Mod, this option is off by default. As seen in the included pic in the release notes, the "XMB Intergration" can be toggled on/off easily in sMAN setup. The dev did not stop there with improving this PS3 Plugin in v1.08n additional details such as improved speed on scanning from external / internal hdd when extracting Game Icons / obtaining info from the PARAM.SFO can be seen with all details of this update​
After some testing builds where issues were introduced in the latest updates of webMAN MOD there has been some significant progress that has produced a new Stable release (v1.47.01) after some exciting new inclusions are added to the popular ps3 plugin that takes deank's webMAN (vanilla) plugin and adds a variety of additional features and functions. In some of the latest updates Aldostools has tinkered with deank's slaunch (since evolved into sMAN) and has some modifications that differs from the approach in deank's sMAN, There has been alot of development of this plugin lately by developer aldostools and some regressions did arise while implementing some of these latest additions, but all has fixed., The developer recommends anyone that was using the various v1.46.xx - v1.47.00 builds/commits to update to v1.47.01 which is consider a much more STABLE build.
Following developer Zar' s recent release of ManaGunz (a very useful ps3 homebrew/backup manager), the dev has a new release with PS2 CONFIG Editor that will write CONFIG files for your PS2 Games on PS3 CFW. These config flags can improve game compatibility on some titles as they have been proven to do so in the past, this tool is still in the early stages but this tool is a welcome sight for the community.​
