A small XBList update to 3.2.1

Yesterday I updated XBList to 3.2.1. This release is mostly bugfixes - it fixes a problem where Xbox Gamer Tiles wouldn’t load because changed the format they stored pics in, and it fixes an issue where gamers who are away but in a game would show up as on the dashboard. The only new feature is that I’ve changed the sound that’s played when your friends come online. It’s now the same as the Xbox 360’s notification sound, and is much less jarring than the old sound. I hope that comes as a welcome change. Grab the new version and let me know what you think. read more
