How to get similar build dates between Openelec and Win XBMC - rockdawg - 07-24-2011

I am thinking about switching to Openelec on my Live boxes, but I have one concern. I have three boxes running XBMC Live and one running the Windows build. I also use MySQL as a central db between them all. Because of that, I've been stuck on the the 10.1 stable build because if I try to run something newer, I can't seem to get Live and Win XBMC on the same db version.

Do the dates in the names of the Openelec builds also reflect the date of the git pull from XBMC meaning that I should be able to download a Win nightly from the same date and the two be pretty close to the same XBMC build?

Hi,

no the date in the names is the date of build and the rXXXX number our revision number (number of commits). It has nothing todo with the included XBMC.

We working actually to release our version 1.0. all our release canditates (RC) are prereleases of our v1.0.

the V1.x line is based on Dharma. this means:
-V1.0 includes dharma 10.1
-V1.0.1 will be a bugfix release to V1.0
-V1.1 includes dharma 10.1 but there will be some changes to the OS byself
-V2.0 will include XBMC Eden
-V3.0 will include XBMC Frodo
... and so on

we actually provide devel builds for our dharma releases (V1.0 line) which are called like:
OpenELEC-ION.i386-devel-20110723-r7552.tar.bz2
(this builds are development builds between 2 RC's (actually for RC6))

we provide (every 1-2 weeks) Eden based images with the latest XBMC-eden (V2.0 line) git checkouts which are called like:
OpenELEC_EDEN-ION.i386-devel-20110707-r7569.tar.bz2

we provide (every 1-2 weeks) Eden based PVR images with the latest XBMC-eden-pvr (V2.0 or V3.0 line) git checkouts which are called like:
OpenELEC_PVR-ION.i386-devel-20110707-r7569.tar.bz2

so you can check the first part of the name and know which version you are running (OpenELEC/OpenELEC_EDEN/OpenELEC_PVR)

hope this helps a bit to understand our naming

thanks

Stephan

Thanks. Is there any way to compare the build of Openelec to a build of XBMC timeline wise?

So are there no builds of openelec that are pre-Eden ala the XBMC nightlies?
