Build Highlights:
  1. NOTE: DVD playback remains temporarily disabled
  2. New firmware, includes the following fix for stalled audio:
    popcornmix Wrote:For a long time we have had a bug in vchiq (message passing interface to gpu) on Pi where a message can get lost which is generally fatal.

    There have been a couple of workarounds for this. We disabled GPU resampling on Pi2 a while back and we've recently added a big global lock around most gpu messages which makes it less likely to occur.We have also had a hack in place where we enable "sync playback to display" on Pi by default, as not enabling it can result in stuttery playback.

    I did have a potential fix for this, but it provoked the vchiq bug so it has never been enabled.Well, we now have a fix for the vchiq issue. It affects userland (/opt/vc/lib) libraries.
  3. [pvr] - rework PVRManager, addons are owned by addon system
  4. [linux] Move hotplug checking into its own thread - fix stutter every 10 seconds
