Fans of Kodi will be super pleased to learn that the folks behind one of the most popular media center apps have today released a new beta build of Kodi v18.
Codenamed Leia, the release is currently all the way up to beta 3 as the developers continue to work towards a final release. The focus is now on making sure the release is as bug-free as possible, while also allowing the team to focus on ironing out any usability issues that remain.
According to Kodi’s developers, a full changelog is “nearly impossible to create,” which we’re taking as a good sign that there is plenty going into making this a great update. The bad news is that we also now have confirmation that Kodi v18 will not receive any more features after this release, meaning it’s now feature-complete and is essentially being polished for release.
So what can you expect? The beta 3 announcement post says that these are the most notable changes:
- Fix slow browsing in library that was a regression added in Beta 2
- Updated button maps for controllers that changed Beta 2
- Improved playback on Android regarding video and DTS-HD audio
- Revert changes for smooth video on Windows that caused issues
- Various other fixes regarding video playback
We’re very pleased to hear that stability is a focus right now, because that can often be something that falls by the wayside in projects as ambitious as this. We’ll continue to follow the ongoing development cycle ahead of a final release, but if you want to head on over to the official Kodi Wiki, you’ll find a full changelog to get your teeth into. Head on over to Kodi.tv to download the beta itself.
