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.

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.
