    The recent change log doesn’t really go into much detail, but does the new Jessie image offer any performance boost? Does it allow more CPU/RAM usage for the emulators?

    Are there any other benefits? I’m interested to see any actual performance increase by using the newest version of debian.

    I’m using the Jessie image. I haven’t used the 3.3 wheezey image, so idk if there is much difference. The reason I’m using Jessie is for Kodi 15.

    I believe Jessie is actually a bit more resource-intensive than Wheezy – I base this entirely upon a thread on some other board I read where a person posted ram usage stats for clean wheezy and jessie installs

    Wow you can get Kodi to show up in Retropie, nice, is this built in now?

    Yep, it installs from the retropie setup script. I had to manually update to version 15 after I installed it though, because the script installed version 14.2. Idk if that’s still the case.
