Hot on the heals of the Alpha 1 release, and some 350 code fixes later, the first (and only?) Beta release of XBMC Media Center 9.04 (codename: Babylon) is now available. New in this Beta 1 release is support for PPC (PowerPC) processors in XBMC for Mac under Mac OS X (Leopard and Tiger), thanks to Team-XBMC‘s new developer Beenje. The feature freeze still applies, and we have also branched a SVN source code tree for release, which means that from here to the end of the month or so we will be only taking well-reviewed fixes in to the final Babylon release. Please give it a run through its paces and let us know if you have any problems. The more testing that is done, the more stable XBMC 9.04 will be!
XBMC Media Center 9.04 releases for Windows and all Mac OS X platforms may be found here.
The XBMC for Linux (on Ubuntu) release are available via the PPA on Launchpad as usual.
Note! If updating from an older version of XBMC you will have to scan in your library again.
