XBMC Eden Now Available!

March 26, 2012 Leave a comment

This day has finally come… XBMC v11.0 or Eden has finally been released after a year in the making. The XBMC team have done an absolutely fantastic job and have created in my opinion the greatest media centre software available to date. With this new version it brings a vast amount of improvements and bug fixes. The main improvements being dirty-region rendering and the new JPEG decoder, a simpler, better library, movie set scraping, additional protocol handling, better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay content and structures, adjustable display refresh rate in OSX (to match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay support and an upgraded weather service with geoip lookup to name a few.

This release also brings with it the release of XBMCbuntu Final which is a replacement for XBMC-Live so if you wanting to get all of the benefits or a Live machine also with a desktop interface go check it out.

As usual you can easily install or upgrade to Eden via the XBMC Downloads page here.

For all of you iOS users you can simply go into Cydia and upgrade XBMC.

If you are running an XBMC-Live machine you can follow my guide here to update.

For more info on XBMC Eden you can see the official post here.

XBMC Eden RC1 Available Now!

February 29, 2012 Leave a comment


Well hows about that… only hours after posting about the imminent release of RC1 it has landed on the XBMC mirrors. Though from what has been covered in the forum its not without it share of issues straight off the bat. Not so good for a RC1 build but some forum members have resolved the issue quick smart, see below for the fix if you have laggy video or video out of sync. This build is also having some hiccups for XBMCbuntu builds for now so keep an eye out for an update soon. For the brief release notes see below:

  • Given preference to external subtitles over internal subtitles
  • Updated a number of XBMC translations for final release
  • Resolved a number of outstanding Airplay issues
  • Allowed specified movie sets to be sorted by title, rather than year, without changing the default sort order on other sets.
  • Weather location lookup via IP

More info can be found here on the XBMC.org site.

Downloads for all builds can be found here: Downloads

If you are running an XBMCLive machine, you can update to the latest version by following my guide here.

Laggy video / video out of sync fix is now in Eden RC2, find more info here.

XBMC Eden RC1 Almost here!

February 27, 2012 Leave a comment

The first release candidate version of XBMC is imminent. According to the commits on github the versions numbers have changed as the “pre-” has been removed from the Repos. To use a Eden skin with RC1 the skin version has to be set to at least 3.0 so say goodbye to backwards compatibility.

See more info below on Github:

February 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Argh don’t know how I missed this one, but XBMC Eden Beta 3 has been released to the masses along with the highly anticipated XBMCbuntu. The new XBMCbuntu allows for multiple uses on your XBMC install, not only the traditional XBMCLive style interface which loads XMBC but you can also access a full LXDE Desktop Interface so you can use a web browser, like the built in Chromium for example.

As ususual there have been a large amount of fixes applied to this release, for more info check out the post on the XBMC site here.

Also if you are planning to update your XBMCLive machine you can follow my post here to do so.

If your wanting to try out the new XBMCbuntu install you can find the files here.

XBMC Eden Beta 2 Available Now!

January 23, 2012 Leave a comment

Good news XBMCers, Eden Beta 2 is now available for us all. Lots of fixes have been made since Beta 1, unencrypted bluray, dvd player, startup problems in OSX, airplay, subtitle issues, unofficial addon repository installations, and the frustrating TMDB scraper problems that have made it difficult for everyone to scrape new movies have all seen fixes. All Beta 1 users are encouraged to update immediately to fix a scraper error that causes XBMC to crash.

You can find the latest Beta 2 files here.

If you are running Live there unfortuantely is still no official update, but you can update to the latest nightlies by following my guide here.

iOS users can just update via Cydia.

XBMC Eden Beta 2 not far away!

Well well well it appears that Eden Beta 2 is on its way, hot off the heals of Eden Beta 1. Looks like the devs are hard at work trying to resolve bugs and keep the ball rolling.
Unfortunately it appears to only cover the iOS, ATV,Windows and Mac OS builds for now. For the Live builds you can still stay up to date by following my guide here.

You can find more info in the commits here:
