Did we mention our new settings addon?
The most visible change in OpenELEC 3.2 is our new settings addon. It’s a huge improvement where changes are effected immediately without needing a reboot, and short descriptions of each and every function to make it easier to comprehend. Thanks to lufie, seo, chewitt and vpeter from the project team, and the many others who helped with developing, translating and testing the addon. We also send a special ‘thank you’ to the connman developers for their patient help and guidance during its creation.
The new addon does not migrate settings from OpenELEC 3.0 or older installs so the first time you boot OpenELEC 3.2 a first-run wizard will ensure you configure essentials like keyboard language, hostname, networking, and startup of SSH and samba services.
NB: OpenELEC is used by people from around the world so the new settings addon needs to be translated into as many languages as possible. If your native language is not currently supported it would be awesome if you can help us out with the words. To contribute a new translation or corrections to an existing one; please use this link to visit the transifex site and get started.
New and dropped builds:
To simplify the number of OpenELEC 3.2 builds available we have discontinuted the ION 32-bit, Intel 32-bit, and ‘Ultra’ builds for Xtreamer users. If you are using one of these builds the correct migration path to follow is:
- ION i386 (with 32-bit capable hardware) => Generic i386
- ION i386 (with 64-bit capable hardware) => ION x86_64
- Intel i386 (with 32-bit capable hardware) => Generic i386
- Intel i386 (with 64-bit capable hardware) => Intel x86_64
- Xtreamer Ultra 1 / Xtreamer Ultra 2 => ION x86_64
Starting with OpenELEC 3.2 we have added a Generic 64-bit release as a “catch-all” for recent 64-bit hardware. You can find all OpenELEC 3.2.4 releases on the downloads page. Please ask any questions in our forums!
