Libreelec 11.0 enables home theater creation through distributive release

Libreelec 11.0 Released for User-Friendly Home Cinema Creation

Libreelec, a fork distribution for creating home cinemas based on Kodi media center, has released its latest project, Libreelec 11.0. The release already offers prepared images for downloading and working with a USB drive or SD card. It includes 32- and 64-bit x86, Raspberry Pi 2/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/3/4 and various devices on chips such as Rockchip, Allwinner, NXP, and Amlogic.

By using Libreelec, any computer can be turned into a user-friendly home cinema without the complicated process of working with a DVD player or TV setting. The distribution’s principle of “everything just works” allows for a ready-to-work environment once the user loads Librelec from a flash drive. Keeping the system in the current state is not the user’s responsibility. The system uses automatic loading and installing updates when connected to the global network. The distribution also offers expansion of functionality through a system of additions established from a separate repository developed by the project’s developers.

Libreelec distribution does not use the package base of other distributions but is based on its own developments to maximize user-friendliness. Additionally, the distribution offers a number of additional and convenient functions, such as the configuration addition for network connection parameters, controlling the parameters of the LCD screens, and allowing or prohibiting automatic installation of updates. The distribution offers methods to use the remote control, organization of joint access to files, the built-in Bittorrent Transmission, and automatic search and connecting local and external drives.

The latest issue of Libreelec 11.0 offers updated versions of packages such as the Linux 6.1 core, Mariadb 10.11.2, .net 6.0.14, Pipewire 0.3.66, Systemd 252.6, Mesa 22.3.4 and Python 3.11.2. Support for old chips such as Amlogic S905, S905X/D, and S912 is available, as well as updated Raspberry Pi firmware. The basic assembly now includes GBM (Generic Buffer Management) and V4L2, the new HDR support on systems with new GPU AMD and Intel, and an image for old equipment with NVIDIA video cards with an old graphic glass based on X11 previously used in the Libreelec 7-10 branches.

Users can download Libreelec 11.0 for free from their official website. It
