Kodi v18 Leia RC4 - A new hope

It's the days between Christmas and New Years eve, and some of our developers found the time do squash down some know issues. We hereby present you v18 RC4 that include several fixes we did past two weeks. There's not really anything more to say than wish you all a great new year. As you might have guessed by now v18 will not be released in 2018. There are several reason for this, however we feel we shouldn't rush a release just for the sake of releasing. There's good hope it will be released very early 2019 once we ironed out the remaining issues we feel should be fixed.

To this point the current v18 version has been proven to be quite solid to use as a daily driver for those who were brave enough to try it out. Of course you should still keep in mind it's not a final release yet and that on any upgrade a small glitch could happen as we are still doing rework. Once you decide to give it a try it is highly recommended that you create a backup first.

Changes in RC4 (and RC3)

Most notable changes to mention in this Release Candidate:

  • Update documentation regarding Python and Skin develoment: Kodi Doxygen 
  • Fix crash on certain music files that contain ID3v2 UFID frame
  • Do not list non-repo add-ons as "unavailable" in info dialog (the by default included ones)
  • Fix some interface info labels regarding music
  • Fix none responsive when minimising on Mac OSX
  • Fix path for looking up external subtitles
  • Replace vc140 redis with vc141 which fixes crashes on Windows (user should at least install this once)
  • Windows DXVA - fixed color values
  • Fix GUI Notifications rendering
  • Fix watched items in plugins (contains database upgrade)
