Some great new updates in the Xbmc CVS. Heres a recap:

  • added: aac codec for paplayer (needs aaccodec.dll in system\players\paplayer)
  • added: Startup Window now setable via GUI! Systeminfo - Appearance - Look and Feel - Startup Window! [GeminiServer] It will set the XBMC Startup Window [Manual Settings, Home, Programms, Pictures, Music, Videos, Music, ] default it Home Window! Manual Settings will not touch the Settings and you can define your own Startwindow in xbmc xml.
  • added: rar support.
  • added: ability to select update interval for rss feeds.

  • im in love with your teams work. i feel like im crawling through boundless mazes of bunny holes just learning all the stunts you enlightened brothers have performed. just one thought, and i know im totally out of my court asking for more from you and the team, but would it be a plausable idea to incorporate a controller button lock (like on cell phones), to prevent any button pressing during video playback?

  • I don't get it. Rar support? For what and where? I want to Stream from my SMB share the Rar archives w/o having to unpack them first. Is that possible? (for divx avi files)
