XBMC is a full screen media center program similar to Apple’s Front Row, Windows Media Center, and Moovida. XBMC started out running on hacked versions of the original Xbox hardware. However, as the years have progressed and the original target, the first generation Xbox got old, the project ported the interface to Linux, Windows, OSX and Apple TV. There is even a version bootable from a thumb drive.
On Christmas Eve, the project released version 9.11 AKA ‘Camelot’. With this release came a whole new swath of features and a even better interface than past versions ,with the very beautiful Confluence default XBMC theme. Some of the features include a new skinning/theming framework, high definition video support, UPnP MediaServer compliant with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) standards — and for you Window’s people, DirectX support for GUI and Video rendering. Those are just a few of the awesome things from the list of many changes in this new version. For the full details, head on over to the XBMC’s project web site.
