# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140810210202-r18944-gf49048a

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (f49048a, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (08cc0a7, 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-3.16.y
  • Excludes the OpenELEC xbmc-001-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 latest libnfs master
  • Includes latest libcec master
  • Includes libcec double-key suppression.
  • Includes libcec CEC Standby Fix.
  • 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 CONFIG_COREDUMP=y to allow creation of coredumps
Build Highlights:
  1. newclock3-based build.
  2. Browsing into archives (zip, rar etc.) is now disabled by default as this is often very slow and can also lead to out-of-memory situations. Can be re-enabled in Settings -> Appearance -> File lists -> Support browsing into archives. How many users are using archives?
  3. When commencing playback, a 1280x720 black jpg is loaded into GPU memory, the purpose of which is relevant only when video is being played in the background (window mode). Not loading this texture saves about 100ms at video startup, and reduces GPU memory usage by 4MB. The only downside is that the skin background is visible while video is in the background, when before it would have been blacked out. This change affects only Confluence. How many users are watching videos in background mode?

  3. newclock3:
    • filesystem: Make support of browsing into archives optional
    • confluence: Remove media-overlay.jpg for when video is backgrounded
