Raspbmc’s March update

Raspbmc’s update this month offers a few fixes and features. Here’s what’s new:

XBMC 12.1 which brings:

  • Improved AirPlay visibility for Mac OS and iOS 6.x devices.
  • General OMXPlayer and performance patches

Also added:

  • Audio popping via analogue is finally fixed (thanks Dom!)
  • I understand a lot of you wish to build your own modules. This has been made easy as kernel headers have now been included.
  • Pulse Eight’s libCEC library is upgraded to bring improvements to bring improved compatibility and bug fixes
  • Fix a bug where disabling the firewall may not be working.
  • Reduce stuttering when playing internet streams.
  • Added additional DVB firmware.
  • Fix for a security vulnerability that could allow users on the same network segment to gain control of the Raspberry Pi. Thanks to Justin Kelly for finding this. This does mean that you will now need to enter a username and password for Samba shares, which, by default, is pi:raspberry.
  • Fix for some issues with apt-get (thanks to Alfredo Pironti)
  • Improved libRTMP library compatibility for playback of Internet streams.

What we’re aware of:

  • Issues with TvHeadend

To get this update, simply reboot your Raspberry Pi. You’ll need to be on the final (8th February or later) version of Raspbmc to get this update. Updating may take up to 15 minutes, so do be patient! If you enjoy Raspbmc, and this update, and would like to support continued development, you can make a donation here.
