Raspbmc’s June update is small, but sweet. Here’s what’s new:
- XBMC 13.1 final with a ton of fixes for some of the bugs introduced in Gotham:
- Fix resume point of certain PVR items
- Fix issues with UPNP
- Fix crash after AirPlay finishes
- Fixes for FLAC tracks with embedded images
- Fixes for M4A and MP4 playback
- Fix a minor memory leak
- Use a unique client broadcast ID in the PVR API
- Some fixes for improving support using external soundcards (HifiBerry and iqAudio), see this thread here
- Reverted to ext4 as the default filesystem for Raspbmc. ext4 provides better data redundancy and is more compatible with Linux systems for those wishing to backup or transfer data.
- Fix issue where XBMC will keep telling user a new version is available.
- Fixes for some issues with 3D content
This update is smaller because the focus has moved on to Raspbmc 2.0 (which will support other platforms too). Named OSMC, you can read more here. Raspbmc will still be regularly updated and maintained to fix issues until OSMC reaches a final and stable version.
To get the update, all you need to do is reboot your Raspberry Pi. If you’re running an XBMC nightly, be sure to switch to ‘xbmc release’ in Raspbmc Settings to get back on the stable build
