Kodi 19.0 "Matrix" - Release




... yes, it's here! After several iterations of alpha, beta and RC, Team Kodi is pleased to announce that Kodi 19.0 "Matrix" has just been formally released on all supported platforms. Dare you take the red pill, and find out how deep the rabbit-hole goes?


By the numbers, then, this version is the product of:


Nearly 50 individual open source developers contributed code

About 5,000 commits in over 1,500 pull requests since the first release of 18.x "Leia"

Over 5,500 changed files, with some 600,000 lines of code added, changed or removed

Countless hours of dedicated free time conceiving, designing, developing and testing (including all the infrastructure you see around them, including this web site)

... and, of course,very little travelling, obviously - that's not good at the moment!


The broad list of new features is below, but - before we get to that - I'd just like to take a moment to say "thank you" to the huge amounts of work put in by the broadest team behind this release. Whether you submitted a few lines of code or a major new feature; whether you worked on video, audio, gaming, or a skin; whether you tested in pre-release and helped identify a problem, debugged an issue or updated a translation; whether you fixed some documentation, looked after the various systems that keep kodi.tv running, or helped to moderate the forum - thank you, one and all. Kodi is a community, and, without all of you, we would all lose something.


So, onward - what have we got. If you've been following the release cycle, you'll have seen these already, but for people who only take final releases... hold on, it's a long list!

FYI - Kodi 19 runs Python 3, so many of the current add-ons wont work in the new update!


You are quite correct. 


Currently, The Oath, Seren, Nemesis AIO, and Sport HD are the only add-ons tested and working with Kodi 19 Matrix.

And just to be sure, Kodi disables them.


They've spent long enough telling people mind you.


Bit like Adobe Flash innit.
