# lsb_release
OpenELEC_Helix (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140528185814-r18482-g3181817

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (3181817, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (15a2897, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 patches
  • 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 conflicts with newclock3
  • Excludes the OpenELEC linux-01-RPi_support patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent patches directly from kernel branch rpi-3.14.y
  • Excludes the OpenELEC xbmc-master-newclock3 patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent 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. See initial post for more details.
  • Includes RPi-specific libCEC commits from mk01/libcec. See build #0527 for details.
  • Increase scan interval of PeripBusCEC from 5000 to 60000, reducing CPU loading by about 2% (1GHz Pi) every 5 seconds (even when CEC is "disabled")
Build Highlights:

Fix for FIQ FSM to stop network dropping out. Please report positive/negative results if you were affected by this.
Reduce number of video frames allocated by 2 with dvdplayer and omxcodec (saves 6M of gpu_mem).
Audio distortion causing commits in last build now removed.
  1. OpenELEC:
    • wlan-firmware: update to wlan-firmware-0.0.21
  2. XBMC:
    • ActiveAE: fix endian swap after 1fdccd8, thanks @warped-rudi
    • ActiveAE: fix endian swap 2 after 1fdccd8, thanks @warped-rudi
  3. newclock3:
    • [omxplayer] Avoid hang when closing stream with clock stopped
    • [omxcodec] Reduce GPU memory use by 2 video frames
  4. kernel 3.14.y:
    • mach-bcm2708: account for FIQ latency in timer interrupt setup
    • bcm2708: Ensure 1-wire pullup is disabled by default, and expose as module parameter
    • w1-gpio: Add gpiopin module parameter and correctly free up gpio pull-up pin, if set
    • i2c: Make combined transactions optional and disabled by default
    • V4L2: Fix incorrect pool sizing
    • V4L2: Add option to disable enum_framesizes.
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.
