"Linux Boxee users may be able to upgrade to the new version of Boxee, version (April 26, 2009 build), by launching the Update Manager tool (Menu > System > Administration > Update Manager) on their Ubuntu systems. If that doesn't do the trick, you can open up the Synaptic package manager (Menu > System > Administration > Synaptic), search for boxee using the "Quick Search" function, and then reinstall it by right-clicking on the program's name and marking it for reinstallation.

"The current support for Hulu, an effort to sidestep Hulu's content redistribution concerns, leverages Boxee's RSS feeds in conjunction with a customized mozilla browser engine that's part of the latest Boxee release. Evidence of this less-integrated approach is seen as Hulu's home page momentarily flashes on the screen just prior to Hulu's content menu (shown above) appearing on the screen."
