Boxee, the free XBMC-based media center system for Linux, Windows, Mac, and Apple TV has released a new system update that adds lots of great new features, including a custom Netflix Instant streaming client.
The good news: their hand-written Netflix client looks even better than the official ones available on the Roku or Xbox 360. The bad news: it only works on the Windows or Mac versions of Boxee and not on Linux or the Apple TV versions. (I run Boxee on the Apple TV, so no luck for me. Good thing I have both a Roku and an Xbox 360!)
But in addition to better Hulu, YouTube, CNN, Flickr, Picasa, MTV Music, the WB, and Apple Movie Trailers support, Boxee has one new feature that makes me very proud: the addition of a built-in viewer for the Boston Globe‘s “The Big Picture“, the best current events photoblog in the world.

Boxee is still invite-only for now, but if you’ve been accepted into the beta there’s no reason not to update immediately.
