XBMC (Open-Source Media Center) Has Been Updated to Version 9.04, Codename

,----[ Quote ]
| XBMC (“XBMC Media Center“) has been updated to version 9.04, codename 
| Babylon, available now for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Apple TV, the classic 
| Xbox, and bootable CDs or USB drives.  


Hedgewars - The Worms redesigned

,----[ Quote ]
| I remember the old times, when we would gather the whole family, and with 
| impunity besiege the computer without a break. 
| It was a time of the Worms series reign, a reign that we all enjoyed. Though 
| the initial release hit the skies in 1994, I have never forgotten the past, 
| and it was one of the most wanted Linux games when it happened to convert to 
| it.   


Multi-processor support coming for Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla has started a new project to make Firefox split in several processes 
| at a time: one running the main user interface (chrome), and another or 
| several others running the web content in each tab. Like Chrome or Internet 
| Explorer 8 which have implemented this behavior to some degree, the main 
| benefit would be the increase of stability: a single tab crash would not take 
| down the whole session with it, as well as performance improvements in 
| multiprocessor systems that are progressively becoming the norm.

| If you are looking for a home media Centre, and have had it with figuring out
| MythTV, this is a VERY VERY good alternative to MediaCentre, Myth or
| TVersity. I think the interface is well written. and the software seems to be
| very well supported.


XBMC Running On an Atom-Based MID

,----[ Quote ]
| Someone's got XBMC running on one of those MIDs. This one
| is a Compal Jax10. It runs Linux and is powered by an
| Intel Atom processor clocked at 800Mhz along with
| Intel's GMA500, which is basically a licensed PowerVR SGX GPU.


XBMC Remote Control App Store Application Arrives for Windows, Mac and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Check this out this morning. This new iPhone app from the App Store, called
| XBMC Remote, does just that—it lets you control your XBMC from an iPhone or
| iPod Touch. The app is pretty open-minded, too.


XBMC's Linux port lacks impressive features

,----[ Quote ]
| Today, XBMC is still best for people who own an Xbox. If you want a
| full-featured media center for your Linux desktop, consider an application
| like LinuxMCE that has TV tuner support and home automation controls.



XBMC Media Center: Linux port project

,----[ Quote ]
| Currently, a few developers on Team-XBMC have begun the porting of XBMC to
| Linux (and OpenGL using the SDL toolkit). The goal is for this to become a
| full port of XBMC with all the features and functions that are available on
| the Xbox version of XBMC (with the exception of Xbox exclusive functionality
| as Trainers, launching Xbox Games, and such).


XBMC recruiting developers for Linux port

,----[ Quote ]
| The goal is for this to become a full port of XBMC containing all the
| features and functions available in the Xbox version of XBMC. This is a
| huge task which is why we are making this public request, seeking C/C++
| programmers to volunteer in assisting us with this Linux porting
| development project.
