XBMC 10.0 Enters Beta With Plenty Of New Features
The developers behind XBMC have announced their first beta release of XBMC 10.0, which is codenamed Dharma. After being in development for a number of months, this open-source multi-media project hopes they soon will be announcing the final release of XBMC 10.0.
XBMC 10.0 introduces an add-on system for separating out the core media playback functionality from the GUI, visualizations, skins, and other items. Besides this add-on system making its debut, this new release supports a variety of video acceleration methods (from VDPAU to VA-API to Broadcom's Cystal HD API), new web-server improvements, VP8 video decoding support, improved Linux 64-bit support, new video scrapers, and many other enhancements.
The release announcement for XBMC Dharma Beta 1 can be read at XBMC.org. There is also a change-log within their Trac area.
