    The Homebrew Channel v1.1.0

    The Homebrew Channel (HBC) has been updated to version 1.1.0. The Homebrew Channel is a self-updating homebrew application loader by Team Twiizers which allows users to load homebrew applications without having to run an exploit every time. Once installed, users can access the channel from the Wii System Menu just like any other Wii channel. It can launch or install homebrew applications from an SD or SDHC card or via TCP/USB Gecko using Wiiload. You can install the Homebrew Channel as part of the HackMii Installer by seeing the Installation part of this page.

    New TrueType font renderer (FreeType) with antialiasing and theming
    The new default font is Droid Sans
    Added full UTF-8/Unicode support (font dependent)
    Added Japanese translation
    IOS is always reloaded, use ahb_access to keep AHB access enabled

    Aligned font rendering to the pixel grid in both 4:3 and 16:9 mode
    Fixed/improved text layout

    Renamed "Coder" to "Author" in app descriptions (<coder> is now an alias for <author>)

    Changed many crashes into explicit errors / a panic screen
    Speed and stability improvements when launching apps (cleanup after IOS)
    Reload stub: support any BAT setup (or even real mode)
    Reload stub: do not depend on existing exception vectors
    Reload stub: do not touch HID4

    Fixed bugs in device hotplugging support
    Added nicer error message triggered when HBC runs out of memory while loading an app
    Removed the <unknown> coder/version labels
    Fixed memory leaks while loading themes and in app entries
    Reduced the minimum theme size (for xml-only themes)
    Increased the maximum theme size up to 20MB (for huge fonts)
    Reduced memory fragmentation when loading apps/themes (less OOM errors)
    Fixed sorting by release date
    Fixed crashes with incomplete meta files
    Themes now affect language choice (due to font differences)
    HBC now allows apps to load code at 0x3400
    Fixed various buffer overflow / error conditions
    Fixed/improved thread synchronization and race conditions
    Theme ZIP files can now contain .txt files, which are ignored (README.txt, etc.)
    HBC can now take screenshots (Nunchuk Z+C, in that order)
    Updated to devkitPro r24 and latest libogc/libfat git[/SPOILER]

    Download HBC v1.1.0/HackMii Installer

    Let's just hope that we get more updates frequently from now on.

    Should I update to Homebrew Channel 1.1.0 or use Homebrew Filter r38?

    Or do you use them together?
