XBMC 11.0 Eden Beta brings AirPlay support, more

XBMC recently rolled out a significant revision of its home theater software, 11.0 Eden Beta 1, for download. Its makers say there are too many improvements to list, but the main ones include speed boosts, add-on update rollbacks, and improvements to the Confluence default skin. iOS users also now get AirPlay support with stable in-sync performance.

More protocol are supported in the latest beta, along with better networking support, a JPEG decoder and a simpler, better library. Unencrypted Blu-ray content and structures also get the benefit of better handling. AMD devices now work for hardware-based video decoding in Linux, though not fully.

Some issues are expected with the beta release, such as playing movie trailers and requiring installation of a YouTube add-on.
