OpenELEC 3.0.0 released #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

BladeRunner

In the wake of the release of RasPlex and the XBMC 12.1 (XBox Media Center) release updates for RaspBMC and Xbian, OpenELEC, one of the core free XBMC projects for the Raspberry Pi, has released a major update that is well worth trying out:

The OpenELEC team is proud to release OpenELEC 3.0.0

OpenELEC 3.0 is built to support XBMC Frodo 12.1 and almost every part of the core OS has been updated and improved since the 2.0 release. The project now supports a broader range of mediacentre hardware than ever before, including dedicated OS images for the budget friendly Arctic MC001 and ultra-low-cost Raspberry Pi systems.

Raspberry Pi deserves a special mention as it’s been a labour of love for the OpenELEC team. OpenELEC was the very first XBMC distro to be demonstrated on development Pi hardware back in February 2012 while other distros were still talking about future plans and hoping for news on shipping dates. OpenELEC’s leading position was made possible by our close working relationship with the XBMC team; helped by our many users, testers and unaffiliated developers who collaborated to create the Raspberry Pi mediacentre experience. There are too many names to mention you all, but thank you for your hard work!

  • XBMC-12.1 (Frodo) – features include:
    • DTS-MA and Dolby True-HD via XBMC’s new AudioEngine (requires hardware support, and not possible on AMD and RPi/ATV)
    • Greatly improved Live TV and PVR support
    • Improved image support, allowing the database to use additional image types.
    • Support for the Raspberry Pi
    • Better Airplay support across all platforms
    • Advanced Filtering in the library
    • Advanced UPnP sharing
  • With XBMC Frodo version stable, OpenELEC provides a solution for Raspberry Pi users wanting to use XBMC. Raspberry PI is the first ARM device that is officially supported by OpenELEC. We would like to thank “Gimli”, “Popcornmix” and “FernetMenta” for helping us port OpenELEC to the RaspberryPi and accepting our patches and improvements so that other projects can benefit from our work.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
