XBMC 11.0 Eden εδώ και τώρα για σένα τον cine-freak!

To XBMC όλοι το γνωρίζετε. Αν δεν το γνωρίζετε αρκεί απλά να πούμε πως πρόκειται για μία πολυδιάστατη εφαρμογή που μετατρέπει τον υπολογιστή σας σε Media Center οπου μπορείτε εκεί να φυλάτε όλες σας τις ταινίες, την μουσική και τις φωτογραφίες σας και να τις βλέπετε/ακούτε στην μεγάλη HDTV του σαλονιού σας.

Εδώ και ένα ολόκληρο χρόνο περιμέναμε την τελευταία έκδοση και επιτέλους το XBMC 11.0 με κωδική ονομασία “Eden” είναι εδώ και έτοιμη να την κατεβάσουμε για Windows, Mac OS X και Linux. H νέα έκδοση φέρνει αρκετά νέα features όπως για παράδειγμα η δυνατότητα του να μπορούμε να “φέρνουμε πίσω” στην προηγούμενη έκδοση την κατάσταση των διαφόρων plug-ins που έχουμε εγκαταστήσει στο XBMC και για κάποιο λόγο δημιουργούν πρόβλημα με τις νεότερες εκδόσεις του XBMC. Ακόμα οι χρήστες Mac OSX θα χαρούν ιδιαιτέρως μιας και η δυνατότητα Airplay είναι επιτέλους κομμάτι του XBMC Eden. Oι κάτοχοι iPhone και iPad θα έχουν τη δυνατότητα να μεταδίδουν την εικόνα της συσκευής τους απευθείας (σε πραγματικό χρόνο) στην HDTV και στο HTPC που έχουν εγκατεστημένο το XBMC 11.0 Eden. Στα σύν της νέας έκδοσης μπορεί να συμπεριληφθεί και η καλύτερη διαχείριση των μη-προστατευμένων Blu-Ray δίσκων αλλα και η αυτόματη εύρεση του σημείου που βρισκόμαστε για να μπορεί το XBMC να μας παρουσιάζει τον καιρό για την τοποθεσία μας.

Μπορείτε να κατεβάσετε το XBMC 11.0 Eden απο την επίσημη ιστοσελίδα και να διαβάσετε όλα τα νέα features παρακάτω.
