See PR:8409

An advancedsetting.xml file like:
Code:
<advancedsettings>
    <glmipmapping>true</glmipmapping>
</advancedsettings>
will enable mipmapping. In theory it will probably slow down the gui a little and may improve the quality of posters (particularly ones that have been resized down).
Feel free to try and report back if you can see a difference.

Thanks for your help, popcornmix. Mipmapping very noticeably improves the rendering quality when browsing pictures which need to be scaled down (especially in slideshow mode), i.e. pixelation is reduced quite a lot for high-frequency areas. For those interested in actual examples, please check the PR link.
With mipmapping enabled, I _think_ I can see a slightly better image.
With the Amber skin GUI tends to be noticeably slower at times, for example when opening DialogVideoInfo on movies or TV shows - the poster is shown - where at times it may need a second or two (for some reason this is particularly noticeable on the first item in movie sets).
Same applies in views where this background is shown: https://github.com/jester-xbmc/skin.ambe...efault.jpg
According to bcmstat.sh included in these builds, GPU is eating much more memory while scrolling, but it is not causing a problem for me.

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (297af74b, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (fbccdc4a, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. Kodi 16.0 beta3
  2. WARNING: Passthrough audio is most likely broken in this build
    popcornmix Wrote:There's been quite a number of passthrough related changes from fernet's branch.

    I don't think passthrough is working (I don't have a passthrough capable device where I'm testing so not 100% sure).

    I think non-passthrough is okay.

    I don't expect I'll fix it tonight (I suspect it needs changes from fernet).

    If you hear no audio when using passthrough then disable passthrough for the time being. Currently with VideoPlayer when "sync playback to display" is enabled (the default) then passthrough is automatically disabled, so most users probably don't have passthrough enabled and won't be affected.

I think the gpu accelerated textures (which will be all the posters/fanart) weren't going through the mipmap path, so only the GUI controls were mipmapped.
I've added a fix that should enable it for the gpu accelerated path.

Does this require the cached thumbnails to be deleted and repopulated after enabling mipmapping?
(2015-11-23, 01:51)Jdiesel Wrote: Does this require the cached thumbnails to be deleted and repopulated after enabling mipmapping?

No. Mipmapping is only applied to final rendering. It won't affect cached files.
After reboot, with Kodi sitting on the Home screen, GPU has 181 MB free out of 256, this has always been about ~195 in previous builds and ~192 yesterday.
I've re-cached 938 textures (texturecache C @allow.recacheall=yes) yesterday and again today - not actually sure if needed. Edit: okay, looks like it's not...
GUI is definitely slow in last build. Takes about ~0.5 seconds to load poster and fanart, until then the previous ones are shown. Episode thumbnails are instant instead.
I confirm the problem with DialogVideoInfo and the skin "default" background.
At some point when scrolling through GUI GPU only had 62 MB free.

After the tests, with Kodi on Home I have 126 MB free on GPU vs. ~170 on previous builds.
But I can definitely see an improvement with this poster: http://thetvdb.com/banners/posters/248837-4.jpg where in the info dialog the "g"/∞ looked pretty odd and is okay-ish now.

5.1 passthrough is indeed broken (static noise), but AC3 2.0 is passed okay.

The wiki is current and correct - there have been no further schema bumps after alpha-4 (personally, I wouldn't have bothered adding beta1 to the wiki as it had no relevant changes).

There's no easy way, but this page has the dates and git sha of each schema change, so with a bit of git/github investigation you could probably work out what database versions are being used by any particular build, as long as you know the date and/or kodi sha (for official OE releases, you'd get this info from the OE repository).

I guess the place to start might be the OpenELEC forum, with a "feature request" type of post (I'm pretty sure the OE developers don't accept feature requests on github).

Adding a feature to the OpenELEC Settings add-on might make sense (basically, pick the drive and select the tar to be copied to the .update folder).

It's probably a fair amount of work - just a shame the File Manager can't be used (although it "sees" the attached drive, it's blind to tar files). Plus it doesn't give access to the .update folder.

Alternatively, perhaps @Leopold might be willing to add something to the Dev Update add-on?

Just to be sure - You are aware that you can update by coping the tar file to the update folder and rebooting? I can't figure why, if you know this, you would be interested in the feature you suggest.

Maybe because the existing method typically requires a network - either to download the tar directly from the internet to the .update folder, to copy the tar over the network to Samba Update folder, or connecting via a network with ssh to copy the tar file from an attached drive to the .update folder.

A "GUI" method could be useful on devices that aren't connected to a network (Kodi is used in a lot of embedded and not necessarily networked installations). Or where the box is administered by users that don't want to mess around with Samba/ssh etc. For example, send a flash drive containing the tar file to your parents, along with a note "Follow these 6 easy steps to upgrade...1) Insert flash drive in telly box 2) Go to menu item System -> OpenELEC 3) Click on "Upgrade from Drive" (or whatever) 4) Click on xyz drive 5) Click on upgrade.tar 6) Click Yes to proceed". Etc.
