Raspbmc’s May update ensures that Raspbmc gets better and better. Here’s what’s new:
- Fixed a rare issue where the update system does not get triggered.
- Fixed an issue where videos continue playing on a black screen (thanks popcornmix)
- TVHeadend updated to version 3.4.
- Fix a bug where the firewall does not disable despite being disabled via Raspbmc Settings.
- USB DACs and PulseAudio support is supported in XBMC 12.2 again. Note that this is an unofficial addon maintained by the Raspbmc team, rather than being supported by XBMC directly, which is why it took some time to port to 12.2.
- Better compliance with upstream Debian (using apt-get upgrade)
It is sad for me to announce that Raspbmc’s other developer, s7mx1 is no longer active. He brought excellent things to the project and was key in development of Raspbmc from early May to February this year. Since early February he has not been actively involved with development. Aside from the moderation and testing team, this leaves me as the sole developer.
To get the update, simply reboot your Raspberry Pi. Note that if you have disabled updates via Raspbmc Settings, you’ll need to enable them first, and if you’re running a nightly build, you’ll need to switch to ‘xbmc release’ in Raspbmc Settings to get back to the stable builds we ship as default.
If you enjoy Raspbmc, and this update, and would like to support continued development, you can make a donation here.
Thank you, and enjoy!
