Release notes for Morpheus 5.2 Beta (work in progress)
High level changes:

- New Podcast support– Morpheus is now a ‘pod-catcher’ and allows you to subscribe and manage podcasts. (i.e. RSS aggregator )
- Search for Podcasts – Morpheus allows you to search podcasts as peers subscribe to them via peer-to-peer search, which means the search power grows as more users subscribe.
- Download episodes via P2P – get files more reliably and save publishers bandwidth and resources by getting files in a download mesh when available on the peer-to-peer network from other subscribers.
