XBMC 12 Beta 3 is here, the main change to this version is that it now works on Android 4.2. You can get the new build from the download page and I just tested it on my Nexus 7 and it seems to work well.

Users of Android 4.2 should now be able to install and run XBMC for Android.

The upgrade path of Windows users has been a little tricky.  Users may upgrade to beta and discover the audio no longer works. This is due to a bit of trickiness with the AudioEngine upgrade. For Audiophiles to get the most out of AE, we recommend that you check out the AE Wiki entry.

For those Windows users who find themselves without sound, the simple fix is to go to System->system->Audio Output and switch WASAPI to DirectSound. Users doing a clean install of XBMC for Windows Beta 3 should have no problem.

PVR Addons have been included with XBMC for Windows, matching up with most other ports.

We are still only partially complete on translations for numerous languages, including Romanian, Japanese, Estonian, Bosnian, Serbian, Hindi, and more. If you feel comfortable with one of these languages, but don’t know how to help, feel free to visit our forum thread that explains how to help translate XBMC using Transifex.
