The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 4th Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.4.

This release includes some bugfixes and improvements since 3.95.3 (beta3). Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes (its shown as XBMC 13 beta4, but its not the final beta 4 of XBMC 13!) and updated the kernel to linux-3.14 which for example should solve some issues with AMD GPU hardware, adds new - and updates some drivers.

The team has made a huge effort to make this one of our best releases yet. Since the OpenELEC 3.0 and 3.2.x releases, we have worked hard to improve OpenELEC in a number of areas. Some of these are visible changes, others are backend changes that aren’t as visible to every user but are certainly worth mentioning.

The OpenELEC 3.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.0.
OpenELEC-4.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-3.2.

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-3.2 to OpenELEC 3.95.4 for testing purposes. If you are going to update to one of our beta releases, we STRONGLY advise that you make a backup of your XBMC data.

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its third Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.3.

This release includes some bugfixes and improvements since 3.95.2 (beta2). Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates as well the XBMC Gotham beta3 release we also added drivers and firmwares for some more Realtek WLAN USB devices and DVB devices. Also we added initial support for TTS (TextToSpeech) output which can be already used together with Ruuk's Addon you can find in this thread. A short "howto" how to install OpenELEC together with this addon for blind users you can find in this post.

Interesting to see that the last 3 bullets on the changelog summary are ones I've been requesting for a looong time on IRC, but were considered nonsense all that time and now they show up.

SolidRun CuBox-i Support Is Coming

Ever since SolidRun announced their range of CuBox-i devices, we have constantly been asked when and if we were going to support them.

We've been just as excited about these devices and were keen to get our hands on some to see what we could do with them. SolidRun kindly sent us a few of these devices and we have been working on adding support for them.

A little over two months ago, Stephan Raue checked in the initial commit that added support for CuBox-i devices. Its been a busy few months since then; in between XBMC Gotham betas and our OpenELEC 4.0 betas, but we've slowly been improving support for these devices.

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its second Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.2.

This release includes some bugfixes and improvements since 3.95.1 (beta1). Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates as well the XBMC Gotham beta2 release we also added some fixes to fix Airplay issues with iOS 7 devices, fixed SSL support for XBMC's internal ffmpeg, more firmwares for bluetooth, wlan and DVB devices, fixes for standby/wakeup issues on some systems and a fixed LIRC support for RPI's GPIO remote receivers.

The team has made a huge effort to make this one of our best releases yet. Since the OpenELEC 3.0 and 3.2.x releases, we have worked hard to improve OpenELEC in a number of areas. Some of these are visible changes, others are backend changes that aren’t as visible to every user but are certainly worth mentioning.

The OpenELEC 3.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.0.
OpenELEC-4.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-3.2.

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-3.2 to OpenELEC 3.95.2 for testing purposes. If you are going to update to one of our beta releases, we STRONGLY advise that you make a backup of your XBMC data.

Since OpenELEC 3.2 the underlying OS and the build system have been completely reworked. One aspect of the builds that isn’t visible to most users is the buildsystem; it is one of the most fundamental building blocks for OpenELEC. It provides us the flexibility to support many different build platforms, to be responsive in updating specific packages and to add new features easily.

As most of you will have noticed, the last few months have been a little tough on the OpenELEC.tv site. In particular, towards the end of December we were seeing outages several times a day.

This was incredibly frustrating for us, and not the kind of user experience we aim to provide. So, sorry for any frustration and inconvenience this may have caused you all.

Story
Introduction
OpenELEC is an embedded Linux distribution that aims to allow people to use their Home Theatre PC (HTPC) in the same manner as any other device attached to your TV - like a DVD player or Sky box. Turn on your box, and OpenELEC is ready and waiting in less than 10 seconds - as fast as some DVD players. A simple remote control is all you will need. On top of that, one need not worry about updating OpenELEC, as the software will self-update automatically when connected to the Internet and an update is available. Installing OpenELEC takes less than 5 minutes and requires zero Linux experience. After that, one need merely add one’s media files and preferred addons, and OpenELEC will “just work.”
