With XBMC we also enabled a separated session at LightDM so people are
able to have the best performance available (without any other wm or
compositor around).

I updated both gst-ducati and gst-plugins-base from gitorious to make
XBMC to work properly, but other than that I just used the packages
available at the TI PPA. What other updates are you planning to push
soon?

Let us know as soon you have something, so we can also integrate at our LEB.

Thanks!
