The popular Media Center application XBMC Eden will be available to install in Ubuntu 12.04 through the Ubuntu Software Center. This means for the XBMC installation in Ubuntu, no need for adding additional PPAs or repositories to the system. Thanks goes to XBMC and Debian developer Andres Mejia, who took up the job of getting XBMC Eden into Debian.
As per the announcement in XBMC blog:
“In the past we have been unable to make it into Debian as the sheer size and complexity of XBMC made the review process so difficult, so Andres, an XBMC developer who was working to become a Debian Developer already, volunteered to maintain it himself. Yesterday, his Eden packages were accepted.
For those unclear about what this means, Debian unstable users will now be able to install XBMC without using any third-party repositories.”
