It has been more than a year since we last heard about the LinHES project, as the previous release, LinHES 8.3, was announced on February 20, 2015, but it looks like things are still alive and the developer managed to find some time to update the operating system’s internals.
Therefore, LinHES 8.4 launches today, May 15, 2016, as an alternative to the Mythbuntu and similar products, built around the latest MythTV 0.28 open-source digital video recorder project, Kodi 16.1 media center, and OpenPHT, a fork of the well-known Plex Home Theater software.
Under the hood, LinHES 8.4 remains based on the lightweight and powerful Arch Linux operating system, which means that most of its core components have been updated to their latest versions available at the moment of the release. Also, LinHES 8.4 comes with better support for Plex media scanning.
