Coming more than a year after XBMC 10 was released and when this release was already in planning, XBMC 11 is finally nearing the light of day now having reached its release candidate status this week.
There's been several beta releases of XBMC 11 "Eden", but Eden RC1 offers up a lot more bug-fixes and other ironing out of issues. However, after the RC1 release happened, a major bug was discovered which results in video lag across all platform under certain conditions, but there is a work-around available.
XBMC 11 has user-interface improvements, CPU / GPU performance improvements, mobile / touch-screen improvements, a new default skin, and much more. XBMC has also been working on Raspberry Pi support. Additionally, it looks like soon they may support Wayland.
