Firefly Media Server was formerly known as mt-daapd. It was renamed when it adopted new features such as support for RSP and support for Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X.

Latest developments[edit]

Firefly Media Server is not under active development. There has been an abortive effort to continue this project as Firefly2 Media Server. Since July 2009, development continues on a Linux/FreeBSD fork named forked-daapd. The latest version of forked-daapd is v23.1.
