# lsb_release
OpenELEC_Helix (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140716002628-r18735-g265eb40

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (265eb40, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (c550042, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 patches
  • 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-3.15.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. Also double-key suppression.
  • 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")
  • Includes libnfs master with directory caching and file read-ahead support
  • Enable zram with LZ4 compression as a kernel module. See guide. See post #605 for config patch.
  • Includes PR4990: Allow larger font size
  • Includes PR5034: Drop GetText usage in tinyxml
Build Highlights:

  1. WARNING: This is another DEBUG build. Probably the last, as they don't seem very popular (only 2 installs of #0715b). Unfortunately, diagnosing crash bugs is nigh on impossible without a backtrace, so if there are any lingering crash bugs this would be the build to test with.
  2. NOTICE: The next build - in a couple of days - is going to drop OpenSSL in favour of LibreSSL (see PR:3370). This is a proposed OpenELEC architectural change and will impact all encrypted communication, particularly streaming (sftp/https/ftps etc.). It would be nice to have any remaining crash bugs out of the way before making this switch, so please test this last debug build.
  3. New firmware
  1. Firmware (Jul 15):
    • firmware: gpioman: Add support for configuring gpio from external blob file
    • firmware: Backport latest VCSM
    • firmware: arm_loader: Add extended command line parameters before filling in device tree. See: link
    • firmware: bplus: Support config option max_usb_current. See: link
    • firmware: bplus: Invert left/right channels for pwm audio on bplus
  2. XBMC:
    • [AE/osxsink] - fix possible device changed loop when using passthrough (PR:4975, 4 commits, 6 files changed)
    • Remove a superfluous call to RequestStreams() (PR:4334, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
    • [addoncallbacks] check key is non-null before use (PR:5032, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
    • [pvr] use Refresh() instead of Update() to refresh directory listing (PR:5031, 2 commits, 12 files changed)
    • fix build when HAL is enabled
    • WindowXML::LoadXML: fix checking result of CXBMCTinyXML::LoadFile()
  3. kernel 3.15.y:
    • snd-bcm2708: Add mutex, improve logging
    • Fix for ALSA driver crash
    • hid: Reduce default mouse polling interval to 60Hz
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.
