XBMC4XBOX 3.0.1 Stable Released!

May 19th, 2011 1 comment

We are pleased to announce stable version 3.0.1 of the popular media center platform XBMC
for the 1st generation XBOX (now called XBMC4XBOX). A huge amount of work has been put into this, and it features numerous additions and improvements over the last release such as:

  • Updates to dvdplayer’s ffmpeg libraries, including some tweaks for additional speed. Performance with h.264 for example is much improved from previous releases thanks to plenty of optimisations upstream.
  • Many improvements and bug fixes to the video/music libraries and scrapers.
  • Python updated to 2.4.6 as well as improved compatibility for addons intended for mainline XBMC.
  • Support for encoding CD’s to the FLAC format.
  • We now ship with a customised version of the Confluence skin optimised for the XBOX.
  • Bug fixes and updates to many core components such as Samba and libCurl – such as compatibility with Windows 7 shares.

and plenty more!
