Kodi v18 Leia RC2 - A new hope

After two years of hard work by all volunteers, either part of the team or of our great community we can finally say the last steps towards Kodi v18 are being made. In past years many things have changed, either visually or code wise and to be honest i can't even recall most. We as team would certainly like to thank every developer and user who spent time helping us get this far.

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 RC2

Most notable changes to mention in this Release Candidate:

  • Update documentation regarding Python and Skin develoment: Kodi Doxygen 
  • Linux powermanagement: change logind detection to also use Dbus
  • Android: Fix playback for some PVR add-ons
  • Fix performance issue in PVR recording sub menu by reducing number of resume point update requests
  • Android: Assign joysticks in order of MRU (last activation)
  • Fix crash when an add-on did not define a version number
  • VideoPlayer: fix state of a/v players after switching refresh rate
  • Add new setting that allows to hide "spoiler" text for TV shows or movies
