  • Includes newclock4 patches
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches due to conflicts with newclock4

  • Excludes the OpenELEC xbmc-001-newclock4 patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent patches directly from newclock4 branch
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled (new installs only) [patch details]
  • Disabled "Total Duration" in Confluence (see build #0221 for details)

  • Includes additional ffmpeg codecs/muxers enabled for testing/benchmarking purposes (see patch)

  • Includes commits from libcec-2.2.0 (popcornmix)
  • Included pastebin: Add device tree kernel trailer

  • Included pastebin: Add *.dtb files to firmware
  • Included PR:3657: [rfc] kodi crashlogs
  • Includes PR:5573: webserver: improved caching control (see discussion)

  • Includes PR:5752: [jsonrpc] Allow retrieving empty TV shows via VideoLibrary.GetTVShows.
Build Highlights:
  1. Device Tree enabled kernel (discussion). This should avoid kernel module conflicts with addon hardware, particularly i2s cards. Should be working with HiFiBerry and iQaudIO cards. Shouldn't break anything. Anyone not using i2s hardware should find the unwanted modules are no longer loaded
  2. Updated kodi-splash service to include "Requires=graphical.target" - see if this avoids hanging
Build Details:
  1. XBMC:
    • [art] use correct art type when appending art to item lists (PR:5886, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
  2. libnfs:
    • libnfs.c: fix typo, it is readahead not readahaed (5f6442d1)
    • DOCS: document the readahead url argument (9c1d3848)
  3. newclock4:
    • New commits in this build:
      • native resolution (b70241c2)
