One of the best cross-platform media center applications.
If you have ever built an HTPC, chances are that you have come across XBMC- one of the best ways to playback movies from your PC. XMBC has been in that space for a very long and the way it works is that it looks at your media folder and scrapes information of movies present in it such as posters, actors, fan art and synoposis.
The new version, as described by the team that makes the app, includes Addon Rollbacks, vast improvements in Confluence (the default skin), massive speed increases via features like Dirty-region rendering and the new JPEG decoder, a simpler, better library, movie set scraping, additional protocol handling, better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay content and structures, adjustable display refresh rate in OSX (to match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay support, an upgraded weather service with geoip lookup, and much, much more. Check out the highlights in the summarized changelog.
