OpenELEC 3.0 RC3 Supports HD-Audio on Intel HDMI

This is one of the last development versions before the final one is released

OpenELEC, an embedded operating system built specifically to run XBMC, the open source entertainment media hub, is now at version 3.0 RC3.

This current development release is based on XBMC 12.0 Frodo, a free and open source (GPL) software media player and entertainment hub for digital media available for multiple platforms.

Highlights of OpenELEC 3.0 RC3:

• Important sound driver issues with the recent kernel versions have been solved;

• A few problems in the XBMCs Audio Engine code have been solved with great help from XBMC developers "Fritsch," "wsnipex," "Martijn," and many others;

• HD-Audio on Intel HDMI devices is now working out of the box.

A complete list of changes can be found in the official announcement.
