libCEC 2.0 released
libCEC 2.0 has been released this week!
This version of libCEC includes support for the Solid-Run CuBox (TDA995x) device, written by GitHub user warped-rudi.
Another highlight of this release is that it includes the latest Beta3 version of the libCEC Tray Application, which you can use to control Windows Media Center via CEC. libCEC Tray replaces the CEC Configuration tool from earlier versions; all it’s functions have been ported to libCEC Tray.
We’ve removed all methods that have been marked as deprecated in the last couple of versions, and we’ve fixed to callback methods so they work properly with plain C again. This API change breaks backwards compatibility, which means that if you upgrade your libCEC installation to 2.0, then you must either install XBMC from our packages page, or use the latest nightly build of XBMC.
Another changes in this version can be found in the settings screen in XBMC (system -> input devices -> peripherals -> CEC adapter). The options have been simplified greatly, so they can be configured by all users without consulting the FAQ page first. E.g. you can now select the name of the device to which your adapter is connected, instead of writing a magic number in the input box.
libCEC’s initialisation and shut down times have been reduced greatly, and some bugs that were reported have been fixed. In case you encounter any issues with libCEC, feel free to create a bug report at our GitHub page, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The full changelog can be found here.
