Raspbmc ships with a stable release of XBMC. But, if you are adventurous, it is pretty easy to try the latest nightly release of XBMC on your Raspbmc.

  1. Go to Program → Raspbmc settings

  2. Choose Nightly Build Configuration → Install XBMC nightly

  3. The nightly releases of XBMC will be listed here, including the one which shipped with Raspbmc, which is listed as xbmc release

  4. Choose the XBMC nightly you want and it will download and install. After the install you will be asked to reboot to switch to the nightly.
