So many of you may have heard that there has been a disturbance in the force as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror.
Actually it’s not that bad, from the outside it looks like OpenELEC (the software that we modify to create the Slice software) have had a split and most of the devs have forked OpenELEC and moved to LibreELEC. For more information please read their frankly awesome explanation:
So where does this leave us, obviously I’ve got a decision to make, either to stick with OpenELEC or jump ship to LibreELEC.
For the moment, I’m transitioning the nightly build to the new LibreELEC and leaving the Stable build (unchanged and with no further updates). Once LibreELEC make an official release branch of Jarvis (currently it is still running off the master branch) I’ll think about updating Stable as well, but only if I believe it will be backwards compatible.
Thanks, hope this makes things clear!
