# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140424023847-r18233-g40add36

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (40add36, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (1c832d6, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for 043ed58, 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:

newclock3 fixes for 6-channel / 96 kHz FLAC playback:
(2014-04-23, 23:43)popcornmix Wrote: I've pushed a commit to newclock3 that improves 6-channel / 96 kHz FLAC playback for me.

These files are quite demanding, and you are likely to get stutter when Pi is busy.
I see stutters during the first minute after launching xbmc when add-ons are updating, and I can provoke them by scrolling the movie fanart view for example.

When xbmc is left alone, or just browsing through menus without fanart it played fine for me, with or without visualisation.

  1. OpenELEC:
    • gcc: update to gcc-4.9.0
  2. newclock3:
    • ActiveAE: fix idling of engine due to high number of samples in sink buffers
    • [PiSink] More attempts to reduce underrun audio glitches with multichannl and high samplerate
    • [omxplayer] Fix for aspect ratio of portrait videos
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.
