The makers have also improved the interface in many other areas, which should make it easier to use.
The makers have also improved the subtitles according to their own statements. Not only were bugs fixed, but users can now also influence the opacity of the text that is displayed.
Python 3 now forms the basis for Kodi. Doing so could cause some installed third-party add-ons to stop working. Most of the add-ons offered for Kodi should have made the switch to Python 3 and should already be adapted. Especially in connection with the add-ons, the makers also emphasize improvements to the security of Kodi.
Almost 50 developers are said to have contributed code to the popular open source software. This was preceded by several alpha and beta versions for testing the new release.
Kodi 19 “Matrix” is available for free download for Windows, Linux, Android and Raspberry Pi as well as for macOS, iOS and tvOS.
