LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.95.1 BETA

LibreELEC (Krypton) 8.0 preview release continues with v7.95.1 release available for all build projects except Amlogic aarch64 devices. We have now forked and frozen the release branch on GitHub; which means from this point we allow updates to add-ons but will refuse any new feature additions, major build-system changes, and all software package bumps to the release branch unless changes resolve a known problem or critical security issue. This approach assures stability in the 8.0 release branch and continuity of Alpha testing. LibreELEC v7.95.1 is based on Kodi Krypton 17.0-RC3. Amlogic aarch64 projects (WeTek Hub, WeTek Play 2, and Odroid C2) are...

Happy New Year !!

The project had an interesting and fun 2016. We are now 9-months old and the founding group of 8-10 refugee forum moderators and Kodi patch hackers has evolved into a collective of 65+ people with additional interests in Plex, Docker, Retroplayer and more. Being a friendly neighbour to projects who share our OS base continues to add new developer talent to our extended team and we are proud of the overall positive and respectful atmosphere we have fostered around the project. USERBASE In the last week we exceeded 130,000 active installations. Large numbers are not a core objective but consistent solid growth shows we...

LibreELEC (Jarvis) v7.0.3 MR

LibreELEC (Jarvis) v7.0.3 MR is a minor update bringing “armchair upgrades” to the settings add-on, firmware support for the BCM2837 based Raspberry Pi 2B+ and drivers for the new Hifiberry Digi+ Pro card. Fixes for Kodi Jarvis stopped after our v7.0.2 release in June so there are no Kodi changes, and the developer team has been focussed on Krypton for some time so we do not want to introduce new issues at this late stage in the Jarvis lifecycle by forcing major OS changes. Add-on updates for 7.0 releases will continue (if add-on maintainers submit changes) but 7.0.3 MR is the final LibreELEC 7.0 release....
