Just over one year after its inception, Raspbmc has hit its final development release, version 1.0. Raspbmc is of course the Linux distro aimed at creating a perfect merger between the famed $35 Raspberry Pi and the popular media center software XBMC.
Since its release, the Raspberry Pi has been popular among the HTPC crowd because of its cheap price and high performance hardware. Sam Nazarko, the terrifyingly young developer of Raspbmc started the project just over a year ago, and has today announced that it has reached the final release for its version 1.0.
On his blog, Nazarko said:
"I've been working on Raspbmc for a year and am now happy to announce the final release and congratulate XBMC on such a remarkable new release. Just to clarify what confused a few. Final does not mean we're not doing any more work, it means the 1.0 version of Raspbmc is available and stable.
