ZatzNotFunny spotted Roku's next version of software for its media streamers: "version 2.8, the Channel Store (above) will inherit an interface that’s quite similar to Roku’s updated Netflix experience — making much better use of screen real estate."
The article further reports on the DLNA rumour:
Lastly, there’s been rumors that DLNA support might make an appearance this fall. But no one from Roku’s talking, so we just don’t know if that feature will (finally) flesh out the device for LAN playback.
Unfortunately, on the Roku forum, an employee responds to the rumour:
To address the rumors, there is no DLNA coming in November. We don't comment on unannounced/unreleased featured, generally. We realized that there's a set of users that wants DLNA functionality and perhaps at some point we will offer it. We have added SSDP, the discovery protocol used by UPnP/DLNA to help enable developer of network-based control and automation apps to discover Roku player on the local network. That may have been a source of confusion.
