Late again with this… but just haven’t been near a device I could blog from.

XBMC Eden is released.

XBMC 11.0 Milestones include Addon Rollbacks, vast improvements in
Confluence (the default skin), massive speed increases via features
like Dirty-region rendering and the new JPEG decoder, a simpler,
better library, movie set scraping, additional protocol handling,
better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay
content and structures, adjustable display refresh rate in OSX (to
match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay
support, an upgraded weather service with geoip lookup, and much, much
more. Check out the highlights in the summarized changelog.

Also a new XBMCLive now called XBMCbuntu..

XBMCbuntu is very similar to past versions of XBMC Live. By default,
the user boots directly into XBMC, and if he/she chooses, he or she
will never see the underlying OS. However, unlike Live, XBMCbuntu is
now built upon a full LXDE desktop environment, which has a web
browser (Chromium) with a fully updated (and updatable) version of
Flash built-in and a GUI package manager ready to install and update
all of the normal Ubuntu programs a typical Linux user might use. The
user may now toggle between XBMC, which auto-starts, and a normal
desktop if he or she chooses. And, perhaps most exciting for many
users, XBMC will now be upgradeable, both from command line and from
the GUI package manager, without fear of crashing the XBMC experience.
