LibreELEC 10.0.4 has been released, bringing Kodi (Matrix) v19.5. Users of LibreELEC 10.x will receive an automatic update (if enabled). LibreELEC 9.2 installs are not automatically updated, and users will need to manually update.
There are no official LibreELEC 10.x releases for Raspberry Pi 0-1 as support has been discontinued. Older Pi devices lack the CPU/RAM resources needed for a good Kodi experience with the new video pipeline used in Kodi v19 releases.
The new video pipeline used in LibreELEC 10.x does not support enhanced HEVC software decoding. If HEVC media playback is important to you please remain on LibreELEC 9.2 releases or consider a Raspberry Pi 4 upgrade (RPi4 has native HEVC hardware decoding).
Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi 400 hardware supports:
core_freq_min=500in config.txt to avoid AV-sync-issues/skipping
hdmi_edid_fileconfig.txt settings are no longer used.
getedid createto install permanent EDID file (same as on Generic)
video=...kernel boot params in cmdline.txt to force a video mode, e.g.
audio_pwm_mode=1to config.txt to enable it
The team does not support direct update from LibreELEC 9.2 to LibreELEC 10.0 due to breaking Python changes with Kodi add-ons. We strongly recommend users create a backup BEFORE creating a clean LibreELEC 10.x installation as downgrade (which Kodi has never supported) is basically impossible. Users with an existing LibreELEC 10.x installation can update as normal.
Project staff are available in the forum to answer questions and provide advice. If you have a problem, technical issues are best accompanied by system and Kodi debug logs - help us to help you.
