Apple TV 2.0.1 software update appears [updated]

Updated

Without any accompanying description, Apple has released version 2.0.1 of the Apple TV software, available as a free download from the device’s General settings menu under Update Software. Launched in February, version 2.0 of Apple TV’s software—also known as Apple TV Take 2—added substantial functionality to the device, including a new menuing system, Internet-based photo browsing, and support for high-definition and standard-definition movie rentals, but has been subject to random lockups and crashes. It is unclear whether version 2.0.1 includes anything beyond bug fixes.

Update: In addition to a new Genres sorting sub-menu for the My Movies menu option, allowing you to more quickly navigate a long list of movies via categorization, a list of additional version 2.0.1 changes appears in the Comments section below.
