Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
[Release] OpenELEC 6.0 released
Published: Sunday, November 01 2015 23:21

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 6.0 (6.0.0)

The most visible change is Kodi 15.2 (Isengard). Beginning with Kodi 15.0 most audio encoder, audio decoder, PVR and visualisation addons are no longer pre-bundled into OpenELEC but can be downloaded from the Kodi addon repo if required. PVR backends such as VDR and TVHeadend will install needed dependencies automatically. For further information on Kodi 15.1 please read

We now officially support WeTek's WeTek_Play device with a build that installs to internal NAND and dual-boots with Android on an SD Card. The iMX6 build extends support to all Solidrun CuBox-i/TV, Solidrun Hummingboard devices and the OSMC Vero. We recommend CuBox-i2eX / Hummingboard-i2eX or better devices.

Under the hood there are updates to ffmpeg 2.6, mesa 10.6, Xorg-1.17, libva 1.6, systemd v219, binutils 2.25, Glibc 2.22, libressl 2.1.7, LLVM-3.6 and Kernel 4.1 (except for iMX6 and WeTek_Play).

OpenELEC 6.0 release contain a Kodi major version bump. If you are updating from OpenELEC 5.0 or earlier we strongly recommend you perform a full backup before performing a manual update. If you experience issues please perform a soft-reset to clear OpenELEC and Kodi settings.

OpenElec is basically the same as Kodi. The biggest different is that OpenElec is a stripped version of Ubuntu version of Kodi that is meant to load fast. I run this on a Zotac Mini PC attached to my big screen tv. I used Freenas for fileserver and Zotac has 1gb hard drive to store files if needed. It loads VERY fast. Definitely better than loading Windows with Kodi on this machine.
