We recently reviewed the Raspberry PI for use a Home Theater PC (HTPC) and found that performance was a little sluggish. In order to improve performance, Raspberry has now released Raspbian, which is a, hard-float optimized version of Debian. One of the main areas of improvement for general use will be web browsing.
For XBMC users, audio stream decoding is significantly improved.
The chart above shows the amount of CPU time required to decode various audio formats in real time on the Raspberry Pi. This is particularly important for XBMC users as all audio streams are decoded in software on the ARM CPU, and high-bitrate audio streams can be troublesome. This data shows a significant performance increase when decoding these formats on Raspbian. Full benchmark results can be found here.
The latest release also brings improvements to the firmware, kernel and applications, and is recommended as the distribution most appropriate for general users. An SD card image of Raspbian is now available for download from http://www.raspbian.org
