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 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.
