# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140417184615-r18197-gb9ebd0b

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (b9ebd0b, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (ca6989d, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for a1349ee, a patch to avoid hammering the GUI, which has been replaced with a static spinner)
  • Includes kernel 3.14.y commits
  • Includes Python regex package for evaluation purposes. Initial benchmarking indicates generally positive (and in some cases, significant) performance gains. See this post for a description of how to test effectiveness of this package with addons
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches due to conflict with newclock3
  • Excludes the OpenELEC gotham_rbp_backports patches in favour of sourcing these same patches directly from newclock3 branch
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • Disabled "Total Duration" in Confluence (see build #0221 for details)
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
  • FIQ FSM is enabled by default (dwc_otg.fiq_enable=1 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=1 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0x7). See initial post for more details.
Build Highlights:
popcornmix Wrote:newclock3 has some vc1 optimisations from Ben Avison. Should be quite noticeable.
There's a couple of commits to rpi-3.14.y for fiq_fsm (should improve usb audio quality).

  1. XBMC:
    • overlays: don't reduce ASS texture width unnecessarily (PR4518)
    • overlays: include padding in initial ASS texture width computation (PR4518)
  2. newclock3:
    • Move the H.264 search code search functions into separate source files. This permits re-use with parsers for codecs which use similar start codes.
    • Add platform-specific start code search routine to VC1DSPContext. Initialise VC1DSPContext for parser as well as for decoder.
    • vc-1: Optimise parser (with special attention to ARM)
  3. Kernel 3.14.y:
    • fiq_fsm: fix bounce buffer utilisation for Isochronous OUT
    • fiq_fsm: Implement timeout mechanism
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
