Yesterday I wrote about RC3 of Kodi 15.2 but development of Kodi 16 Jarvis also continues. Alpha 3 of the media center is just for testing and not designed for full time use yet. The main change is a long press action on remote controls which has been added due to many remotes not having a right click menu button. Other changes include support of Kodi on 3D or VR headsets, unified music library and file views and extended support for browsing movies by country via UPnP.

You can download the test version at

• Three finger touchpad mapping in iOS to make room for new tablet gestures which will be available in Alpha 4 to complement existing tablet gestures.

• Kodi now supports being compiled with Xcode 7

• The Kodi GUI now supports a new stereoscopic depth effect for users of Kodi on 3D TVs or VR headsets

• The Music Library and Files View for music have now been unified, similar to how video files and library are unified

• Extended support for browsing movies by country and through UPnP as well as user-ratings which we be added in future versions.
