In the latest release, a new tab is present for recently contacted partners.
However, the behaviour is different from the normal list (at least when contacting TVHost machines):
normal behaviour: double click and authentication starts directly
current behaviour: double click does nothing, one needs to select the Type of remote control first.
This sort of defeats the purpose of a recent list, it needs an extra click to get in.
Not a big issue in the grand scheme of things, but TV is such a perfect UX product that this is below their reputation. (or add a pref setting to disable the Recent Visit list)
