The GeeXboX team seem to have to carved out an annual release cycle for themselves. For those not familiar with GeeXboX, GeeXboX is an HTPC-centric Linux distro aimed at PCs and ARM SoCs. The stated purpose is to provide a Media Center application that can play any kind of content from any location, and with the release of GeeXboX 3.0, the GeeXboX team has not only brought XBMC 11 to the party, but they have even gotten the jump on XBMC 12 by adding the PVR branch early. With growing support for SoCs including the Pandaboard and the Cubox, along with preliminary support for the popular new Raspberry Pi, GeeXboX 3.0 has joined the growing list of HTPC frontends vying to replace WMC.
A shiny new GeeXboX release has arrived! GeeXboX 3.0 is a major upgrade that integrates XBMC 11 “Eden” and adds the long-requested PVR functionality. This means you can finally use GeeXboX to watch and record live TV too! In addition to our usual x86 ISOs, this release is also available for several embedded platforms, with working full HD video and graphics acceleration for most of them.
