Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
[Beta] OpenELEC 5.0 Beta 4 released
22 NOV 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 4th Beta of OpenELEC 5.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 4.95.4.

The OpenELEC 4.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-5.0.
OpenELEC-5.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-beta-1-springs-forward/ .

Due to the potential for typo-bugs and breakage from Kodi renaming YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO MAKE A FULL BACKUP before performing a manual update and perform a “Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset)” after the update.

Other notable “under the hood” changes include a version bump from v3.16 to v3.17 Linux kernel, and a switch from OpenSSL to LibreSSL following the heartbleed disclosure. The LibreSSL package includes better licensing and allows OpenELEC to be simplified by removing support for other cryptographic libraries such as GnuTLS.

Updated core Components (summary) since OpenELEC 4.95.3
update to kodi-14-23c389a

[Beta] OpenELEC 5.0 Beta 1 released

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 1st Beta of OpenELEC 5.0.

The OpenELEC 4.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-5.0.

Supported Platform Changes
Finally, after many years of support the mk1 (silver) AppleTV build has been discontinued and there will be no official v5.0 (Kodi) release. This decision was partly driven by the Kodi development team removing CrystalHD acceleration support in Kodi v14.0 and the unrelated removal of the CrystalHD driver from the v3.17 Linux kernel. In both cases CrystalHD code has not been maintained for several years, and as surrounding codebases moved forwards over time the level of compatibility and optimisation has gone distinctly backwards. At the same time, XBMC’s gradual increase in size breached the limits of the 256MB RAM available in the box to cause a cascade of playback problems for an increasing number of users. Our AppleTV user base has grown sizeable over time, and to the users upset by this announcement we apologise. However, the project staff felt that it was time and that v4.2 should be the final AppleTV release.

Users thinking about upgrading an ageing AppleTV might like to consider the ultra-compact CuBox-i devices from our partner Solid-Run. Second generation Cubox-i devices are based on the Freescale i.MX6 system-on-chip (SoC) platform with multiple Cortex-A9 CPU’s, hardware 2D/3D GPU decoding, and a broad range of peripheral ports including 1080p HDMI and S/PDIF. Solid-Run are running a special promotion for OpenELEC users that gives a 10% discount on the recommended CuBox-i2ex and CuBox-i4pro models, including a larger 8GB micro SD (up from 4GB) that comes preinstalled with OpenELEC instead of Android.
