Update: SlingPlayer has been updated and re-patched with new features and bug fixes. However, it has not been made compatible with Windows 10 and that might be a big problem for lots of users. Many users are waiting for Windows 10 version release of SlingPlayer, but it seems the app developers don’t think about long-term strategies. Another speculation is that SLingApp will receive a compatibility update with the Windows version that will replace the 10-th edition.
