The problem with upnp is that some devices are *very* fussy and often can't
be made to work with other servers. That said Gerbera is a continuation of
mediatomb so would be the obvious choice as a replacement.

I don't see anything that looks like a change in js engine in newer versions.

It's not super-new but there's some discussion about use of spidermonkey
at https://github.com/basho/riak/issues/427. It doesn't seem like something
that will be changed in a hurry.
