Version 1.2.3
  • Release Date: Jul 11, 2009
  • As it appeared that a nasty bug with some AC3 audio encoded files slipped through previous 1.2.2 release, here's another minor release. No big changes here except from AC3 playback recovery.
Version 1.2.1
  • Release Date: Feb 12, 2009
  • While working on 2.0 development, we managed to find a few major bugs in 1.2 release codebase. There were a major flaw in installator which may (in some cases) lead to destroy your HDD's MBR while trying to install to a removable USB key plus a few minor bugs with EeePC 701 frequency scaling and parallel port LCD driver support. It is highly recommended that you use this new version instead.
Version 1.2
  • Release Date: Feb 1, 2009
  • System:
    • Upgrade to Linux
    • Use On-Demand CPU frequency scaling policy.
  • X.Org:
    • Upgrade X.Org ATI driver to 6.10.0.
  • Player:
    • Fix VCD playback issues.
    • Disable GOOM audio visualization, was sucking down CPU too much.
    • Fix some TV card bad color effects.
  • Installator:
    • Simplify installator partitionning step.
    • Unify disk install, using GRUB on USB devices too.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Fix a mounting issue when 2 hardware devices have the same name.
    • Add support for disks with no partition table (Ex: Win32 formatted USB keys).
    • Add a Win32 utility that allows installing GeeXboX to your current hard-disk without need of partitionning/formatting it again.
    • Add USB network drivers to emulate a NIC.
Version 1.2-beta3
  • Release Date: Dec 29, 2008
  • Ok, beta2 was not the last one and here comes beta3 which is definitely candidate for 1.2 release. We've performed a huge amount of bug fixes in various area and were able to correct some long standing issues we had. Two major changes come with this release: a completely new automounter that now relies on D-BUS and HAL and the restoration of installer feature. So yeah, finally (it's been time ...), you should be able to install GeeXboX again, on both your HDDs and USB keys. Other parts of GeeXboX also welcomed a few changes, mostly regarding the player, that received a few fixes for AudioCDs, DVDs, AAC and RealVideo 9 playback.
Version 1.2-beta2
  • Release Date: Dec 15, 2008
  • Here comes GeeXboX 1.2 second beta release. Thanks to your feedback on forums, we've been able to iron out a lot of nasty bugs from beta1. There's no major changes in terms of features but the distribution is now much more stable, which is always a good thing. Most of the corrections took place at the driver level, as many people encountered some issues with hardware support. The few PowerPC users that still exist will also be pleased to know that we've manage to resurrect the port to this architecture (latest release was 1.0, more than 2 years ago).

    We truely hope it'll be the very latest beta release before 1.2 comes out. In the mean time, just test this one out.
Version 1.1
  • Release Date: Jul 1, 2007
