Kodi is an open source media player developed by the XBMC Foundation, formerly known as XBMC (the last version named after XBMC is 13.2 Gotham, 14.0 Helix is the first version named after Kodi), Kodi can run on a variety of operating systems and hardware platform. It allows users to play most videos, music, podcasts and various common digital media files stored in local or network storage devices.
The software was originally intended to run on the Xbox, hence the name. Native versions for Android, Linux, BSD, macOS, iOS, and Windows operating systems followed.
Kodi “Matrix” 19.5 is officially released, and the release of this version also means that the development cycle of v19 Matrix is officially over – the team will then put the development work on Kodi 20.0 “Nexus”, and v19 will not have any updates.
This Kodi “Matrix” 19.5 does not have any new features, mainly bug fixes:
Fix UAF when list is copied
Fixed the problem that GUI controls could not be loaded when they were cloned after the window was loaded
guilib: remove unused functions
[Windows] Fix the problem that the color management ICC profile/3DLUT parameters are not applied
[macOS] Fix the application window at the screen’s origin instead of the hardcoded 0,0
[BACKPORT] Add support for ppc64le in ArchSetup.cmake
[android] Remove usage of DX
Android/Windows store deployment
For Android, we are unable to provide this update through Google Play. After the update, Google requires apps to be at least API level 31 (Android 12) now, while Kodi v19 targets API level 29 (Android 10). As a result, we cannot upload 19.5 to the Play Store, and for those who want to use the new version, it can be downloaded from our servers and installed manually.
