Enjoy the holidays and a happy 2016

Posted By: Martijn Kaijser on Dec 26, 2015 in Community Updates

We hope you all enjoyed the Christmas diner and are now spending some quality time using Kodi as your media center. Since we’ll probably have nothing to report in coming week we as team already want to wish you all a happy 2016. Sorry, no surprise release this time.

The new year will hold a lot of exciting Kodi news which we’ll absolutely share with you through our website. Soon we’ll be releasing Kodi v16.0 as release candidate and if all goes well not long after the final version. This version has several exciting features added. Be sure to read up on that here. Later down the year we’ll also start our early alpha builds again for what will be version 17. This version will have a completely revamped videoplayer so that’s at least something to look forward to.

That’s it for now as we’ll all go back to spending some time with family and/or friends and getting ready for the new year. Wish you all the best and till next year.

    Happy Holidays Kodi Team! You’re doing a great job and it’s appreciated, from a Kodibuntu user. Can’t wait for the new version, it’s going to be great as usual. Smart TVs or any other attempted smooth UI is no match for Kodi.

    That picture for the article is great. Would you happen to have a desktop sized wallpaper material one would you? :)

  • billzkid Dec 27, 2015

    Thanks for your efforts! I didn’t make it to the Christmas diner, though, which supposedly is located somewhere near Santa’s place at the north pole. :-)
