# lsb_release
OpenELEC_Helix (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140718041624-r18747-g6ae3a84

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (6ae3a84, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (92141a9, 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)
  • Includes libcec 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
  • Includes 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. NOTICE: OpenSSL has been replaced by LibreSSL v2.0.2 in this build (see PR:3370).
  2. This is not a debug build.
  3. libcec fixes from mk101 are now included upstream in OpenELEC from PR:29.
  4. CONFIG_UACCESS_WITH_MEMCPY enabled upstream in OpenELEC to use optimised memcpy for the kernel copy_to_user function (used when communicating with GPU as well as drivers like USB/network).
  5. #0718b: Add patch: Python: remove RAND_egd support to support libressl
  1. OpenELEC:
    • gcc: update to gcc-4.9.1
    • ffmpeg: update to ffmpeg-2.3
    • lcdproc: tune lcdd.service (PR:3372, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
    • projects/RPi/linux: enable CONFIG_UACCESS_WITH_MEMCPY
    • libcec: add PR29
    • dvb-firmware: update to dvb-firmware-0.0.42
    • gettext: update to gettext-0.19.2
  2. XBMC:
    • [epg] fix implicit std:Confusedtring constructor with NULL argument (PR:5037, 2 commits, 2 files changed)
    • [depends/ffmpeg] - fix sed (didn't work on osx) - this fixes pkgconfig f... (PR:5036, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
    • [pvr] invalidate window if using fast channel switch (PR:5038, 2 commits, 2 files changed)
    • Readme updates (PR:5011, 2 commits, 2 files changed)
    • cmake: some win32 fixes (PR:5055, 7 commits, 6 files changed)
    • Some character disappear on mac os x (PR:4896, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
    • [lang] add comment/usage to key "Guide" to clarify its meaning (PR:5054, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
    • [addons] sync with repo
    • [addons] fix null ptr dereference in GetTranslatedString
  3. newclock3:

CONFIG_UACCESS_WITH_MEMCPY seems to have fixed issues with network-intensive tasks that used to fail after a while, for example copying a file while streaming.

Update: It takes longer to fail, but it does at some point, here is the log.
