OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 1 released

16 Jul 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.1.

The OpenELEC 4.1 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.2.
OpenELEC-4.2 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.0.

Since OpenELEC 4.0 we have some parts of the underlying OS reworked. OpenELEC 4.1/4.2 is now based on Kernel linux-3.15, Mesa-10.2 and Xorg-1.16. We updated the Nvidia Graphic drivers in the 64-bit image to 340.x (32-bit remains on 304.123), Systemd to systemd-215, our Connectionmanager to connman-1.24 and XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2 (beta1). We switched our libc from eglibc to glibc. We added support for nss-mdns, support to perform filesystem checks on every boot for our both default system partitions and ffmpeg-2.2 to our x86 builds. With switching to ffmpeg-2.2 on our x86 builds we now support h265(HEVC)

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-4.0 to OpenELEC 4.1.1 for testing purposes. If you are going to update to one of our beta releases, we STRONGLY advise that you make a backup of your XBMC data.
