  • Includes newclock4 patches
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches due to conflicts with newclock4

Build Highlights:
  1. PR:366: sync to addon gui version bump (xbmc-pvr-addons)
  2. PR:5501 fixes problem with Music DB Change Scraper
  3. newclock4 fix for mirrored artwork reported by menakite
  4. PR:5410 fix broken airplay with ios8 clients
  5. Kernel 3.17.y commit with optmised memcpy/memset:
    popcornmix Wrote:Just pushed a commit to 3.17 kernel that uses optmised memcpy/memset in more places in the kernel.
    In theory this could help any kernel drivers that communicate with application (e.g. usb/network/vchiq).

    As usual keep an eye out for any breakages, and see if you can spot any perfrormance improvements.
    e.g. it may help playing hard files (although probably only by a small amount).
