2019-11-26 NEWDistribution Release: LibreELEC 9.2.0
LibreELEC is a minimal, Linux-based operating system which acts as a platform for the Kodi media centre. LibreELEC runs on multiple hardware architectures and is able to run on consumer desktop computers as well as single-board, ARM-powered machines. LibreELEC 9.2.0 improves driver support for web cameras, runs on the Raspberry Pi 4, and adds more firmware support. "LibreELEC 9.2.0 (Leia) the final version has arrived based upon Kodi v18.5, the 9.2 release contains many changes and refinements to user experience and a complete overhaul of the underlying OS core to improve stability and extend hardware support compared to the LE 9.0 release. Changes since last beta: driver support for Webcams; improvements for the RPi4; added firmware updater for RPi4. Change for Raspberry Pi 4: With LE 9.1.002 and later you need to add 'hdmi_enable_4kp60=1' to your config.txt if you want to use 4k output at the RPi4. Before you needed 'hdmi_enable_4k=1' that is now deprecated. In this initial release 1080p playback behaviour and performance on the Raspberry Pi 4B are broadly on-par with the previous 3B/3B+ model, except for HEVC media which is now hardware-decoded and massively improved." Further details can be found in the project's release announcement. Download: LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.2.0.img.gz (242MB).
