It's been a long time in coming but the beta version of XBMC 11 has now been released. Version 11 "Eden" adds lots of new features and improvements to the open source home theater software for both Mac and Windows.

The most notable changes are Addon Rollbacks and vast improvements to the default skin Confluence.

There are also significant speed increases thanks to what's known as "Dirty-region rendering", a new JPEG decoder, a simpler, better library, additional protocol handling, better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay content and structures, adjustable display refresh rates in OSX (to match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay support, an upgraded weather service, and much more.

You can find details of all the new additions and changes to XBMC in the changelog.

Although not finished yet, there are also important changes in progress to XBMC Live to make it more like a full “*Buntu” version of XBMC with major changes to the boot and install process.

    I have XBMC EDEN V11.0 CONFLUENCE SKIN. Currently, it doesn't seem like I have all the benefits that I see on other Confluence main menus other poeple have (i.e. Under "VIDEOS" the only sub-menus I have is "folder" and "addons". I do not have "movies", "tv shows", etc.. Also I don't have the "latest episodes" or "latest movies" displayed on my main menu above. Can you help me in the following:

    1. Add sub-menus (Movies, News, Kids shows, etc...) under the "VIDEOS" main menu. Could you give me instructions in how to accomplish this?

    2. Add the coverflow "latest episodes" or "latest movies" displayed on my main menu above.

    Could you please email me at dmd2060@live.com Any help would be GREATLY appreciated........

    Thanks Dennis
