XBMC Eden is coming

XBMC announced a soft-freeze which means no more adding new features to the next version of Eden. A beta 1 release will follow soon.

On the website also a list with new features is mentioned. Here the list:

  • A new “Files” view in the video library in order to remove the notion of Library Mode vs. Files Mode that confused so many new users.
  • The default skin changed to a horizontal layout allowing for more useful information to be displayed on the home screen (vertical version is still available in Add-ons)
  • Efficiency improvements to reduce high cpu/gpu usage
  • Much improved touchscreen support to go along with the first major versioned XBMC release for the iOS (iPad, iPhone, AppleTv2)
  • Ability to customize the home screen by adding your favorite Add-ons
  • The usual smattering of visual improvements, playback improvements, new ways to stream and discover media.. the list goes on.

    “Efficiency improvements to reduce high cpu/gpu usage” – good news for Atom 330!

  2. Helaas geen audio-engine, het belangrijkste punt op de eden roadmap.

    Inderdaad. Dat houdt dus in:

    * Nog steeds geen fatsoenlijke detectie van HD audio formaten (en dus geen fatsoenlijke detectie wanneer inhoud gewoon ge-bitstreamed moet worden)

    * Nog steeds geen goede afhandeling/instelbaarheid van wat pass through naar je homecinema receiver mag en wat door XBMC gedecodeerd moet worden.
