What's New in Playnite 9 (Visual Showcase) - spineduke - 10-15-2021

Hi all!

I prepared this as a visual primer for newcomers and veterans who aren't sure what Playnite 9 brings to the table. There are more changes that go beyond what's shown here, but this is a good place to start!

NEW: Add-On panel
  • Manage your existing addons, themes, library integrations and metadata sources.
  • Change and tweak settings for your add-ons.
  • Find and install new addons and themes for your use directly from the client.
