Developers behind the XBMC project have announced the release of version 11 codenamed Eden.
The developers said:
XBMC 11.0 Milestones include Addon Rollbacks, vast improvements in Confluence (the default skin), massive speed increases via features like Dirty-region rendering and the new JPEG decoder, a simpler, better library, movie set scraping, additional protocol handling, better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay content and structures, adjustable display refresh rate in OSX (to match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay support, an upgraded weather service with geoip lookup, and much, much more.
They have also announced the release of XBMCbuntu Final. This is an installable Linux based version that boots directly into XBMC.
