XBMC4Xbox 3.3.1 Released.

August 13th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

It’s been a few weeks since the 3.3 release, and here is a small update to fix a few issues and the addition of a bonus skin theme. Read on to also find out what may be coming soon to XBMC4XBox.


  • There were problems accessing the video/music playlists when nothing was playing.
  • Adding plugins to the home screen of Confluence Lite cause script failures when launching.
  • There was a minor text positioning bug in the seek dialog with PM3.HD.
  • We now ship with a lovely green XBox theme for Confluence Lite – Go to Settings -> Appearance -> Skin -> Theme to switch.

Thanks to Dan Dar3 for the plugin fix, and DavPow for the green Confluence Lite modification, and the main XBMC project.

The playlist bug was reported by multiple people after the 3.3 release was out. To avoid annoying glitches in future releases, please do get involved and try out the earlier Beta releases. You can then report problems, and help us get them fixed before we do the final release.

I am currently busy working on a major python upgrade (Python 2.7.5 is actually in trunk and already working!) and implementing proper Addons support from the XBMC code base. It is a huge amount of work, with many long days already spent on it. If you enjoy using XBMC4Xbox and want to show your support for the ongoing development please consider making a donation to the project. Please also do join in the discussions over at our Forum and say hello.

The XBMC4Xbox Wiki is currently very out of date, having been re-constructed over the last year from old xml dumps after the last server admin went AWOL. We would very much appreciate anyone that could lend a hand, updating the wiki with information regarding latest features, and correcting / fixing many of the issues. If you are interested you can register right away and start editing.

See the development page for links to the source code and the svn repository. For binary builds, read the information on the download page.

    Nice work as usual buzz. Now you’ve given me a problem, do I go for this or the latest nightlies? I’m loving your work on the python 2.7.5 so will most likely stick to that and try to give you some useful feedback. I may have to try this just for the green theme though 🙂

      well, if the nightlies work for you, please continue. It’s just that the python 2.7.5 is relatively new and I want it to go through more testing before release (most probably along with addons support)

    Does proper addons support mean automatic addon updates? if so, that would be a huge improvement for more “normal people” to use x4x. updating the plugins is basically beyond them even with the nice Addons installer bundled, so the experience quickly degrades.
    Thanks for the bugfix release, unfortunately i was away and too late to test 3.3, sorry.

      yep. automatic updates. there was no point in doing this before as our python was way too old to be compatible, but since I got that working, I decided to start on backporting the addons support from xbmc.

    The project doesn’t offer binary builds anymore:

    But, you can create a forum account and search for “unofficial builds” made by community members.

    We really need a a prebuilt download available, could a link to maybe a share download be provided or someone release it somewhere and point out where to find it.

    I am new around here. In the post last sentence there is stated “For binary builds, read the information on the download page.”
    If you click that link there is written that its not legal to distribute binaries.
    Is this a joke? 🙂 Better remove that last sentence since it imposing something which it is not?

    I continue to search the forum “the right way” whatever that is… *confused*

    anyway, keep up the good work!

      the download page gives all the information you need. it’s the best we can do, as we do not provide builds ourselves. It’s not hard to find a binary build if you actually have a search.

      we used to link to source downloads there too, but they were moved to the development section due to people trying to install them directly to the xbox, no matter how many warnings we put on the page.
