Kodi 18.3 Released, Here’s What Is New In This Release

Kodi, one of the most popular media playback solutions around, has now received its latest update as the team continues to push it forward. It’s been two months since the last release and now Kodi “Leia” 18.3 is available. It’s a bug fix release with plenty added.

Most of the fixes applied during this release are beneath the surface so it’s possible that you might never notice them.

The team behind Kodi says that a “nasty memory” leak issue has now been fixed. That particular issue related to playing back DDs from HTTPs sources so again it’s likely you will never know that fix has been applied. If you fell foul of it though, you’re going to want to download this update sooner rather than later.

If you want to check out the full Kodi “Leia” 18.3 changeling you can find it over on GitHub, but some highlights according to the announcement blog post include:


Fixed favourites widget not scrolling properly on 16:10 displays
Fixed API button was not reachable with a mouse on Settings window
Fixed Skin Settings window scrollbar focus
Fixed order of TV Show title and Episode title in Video Info dialog
Added Search button to the side menu in the Video and Music windows
Fixed Wall and Infowall views scroll to bottom on certain aspect-ratios
Fixed broken side menu navigation in the Addon Browser window


Fixed a Group Manager crash when adding a new group
Fixed EPG UI corruption and/or EPG data not showing with newly added channels
Fixed PVR guide window channel data being overwritten
