The main focus of this release is to address a bug that could cause XBMC to freeze when updating a skin. We have held back skin updates from the main repository because of this, but now that it is fixed, they will begin rolling out in a few weeks.This is intended as a bug-fix release only, no new features have been introduced.
To install XBMC open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc
If you already have XBMC installled with the team-xbmc ppa XBMC will be updated to the latest version when updating your system.
When installed you can find XBMC under Applications -> Audio & Video -> XBMC Media Center.
Notable fixes include:
If an in-use skin was updated in Windows, XBMC would freeze
Some RTMP streams in Windows did not play
Included add-ons have been updated
The correct referrer is now used for downloading add-ons, improving dependency statistics
Crashes during playback on ATI hardware in some circumstances have been fixed
Hardware decoding improvements for OSX
Various small fixes
