Shotgun Software releases Shotgun 5.1

Shotgun Software has released Shotgun 5.1, the third update to the production-management software in five months, and one that continues the theme of refining the user interface.

The most noticeable change is the redesigned – and more visually appealing – overview page, which now features a full-width banner image. Widgets tackle key tasks, like adding people or media to a project.

The Screening Room has also had a UI overhaul, and gains the option to create and edit playlists; and there is now a new Master Detail view, intended as a replacement for the old drop-down menus in the Detail Pages.

The three-minute video above provides a bite-size tour of the main features, or you can find a full list of the smaller additions and bugfixes via the link below.
