It has been a while since I have written about Kodi but now they are back with Alpha 2 of Kodi 18. This development focuses on stability and usability with a lot of effort made to improve the quality of the application.
The main changes with the build are improvements to the music library, scanning of the video library and Live TV. There are under the hood improvements for Windows, Android and Linux, which you can read about on the changelog. The Kodi team are aiming for v18 to be released by the end of the year and you can download the alpha 2 version now if you want to give it a test.
