Roku has begun rolling out the latest firmware update to it’s device, OS 8.1.
Roku sent out an email outlining the update:
Roku OS 8.1 introduces a new memory-level API for detecting when channels enter low- or critical-memory states, providing the opportunity to free up memory before the channel terminates.
The new firmware also deprecates five roDeviceInfo member functions, replacing them with parallel functions. Developers have one year to update their channels to adopt the new APIs.
To learn more about these new features, as well as other BrightScript and SceneGraph enhancements, review our Roku OS 8.1 developer release notes.
