For an introduction of the new features, have a look at the Macworld 2008 keynote:

The part about Apple TV 2 starts at 00:29:00.

The Apple TV product page has been updated to show the new menus (user interface):

What we Know

  • Software update for old Apple TV will be available in 2 weeks - probably at 2007-01-29 (keynote video at 00:47:30)

What we Don't Know

  • Will probably nuke any custom modifications (AFP/SSH/Plugins)
  • Not known if it overwrites your recovery partition (which is unlikely because an error during the update would brick Apple TV)
  • Looks like a new framework (based on what the UI looks like), probably without headers this time

Ideas come Release

  • diff the update to a clean 1.1 install
  • diff the update to a Safe 1.1 Update
  • determine if a Safe 2.0 Update can be performed
  • Test current frappliances on 2.0 (both clean 2.0 install and Safe 2.0 Update)
  • Building a Patchstick from 2.0 Update (or combined with 1.1 Update) without the need of Intel-Mac files
