Kodi Leia 2019 : Kodi 18.0 Leia , Kodi 17.0 Krypton
Two months have passed since our last bug fix release and already we have a new one ready for consumption.
Fancy a few more features?
There aren’t any, with one teeny-tiny exception.
Apparently DTS-HD audio only tracks are a thing and Kodi can now play them like any other music format.
That’s it, yes No more features Seriously.
However since Kodi Leia 2019 is a bug fix release we have a boatload of arm… fixes.
In fact too many to mention Below is a non-exhaustive list of (mostly) usability fixes.

As usual Kodi 18.3 availability on Google Play and Microsoft Store may take a few more days.
Just when you thought we were all having a rest for Easter, here’s some surprise news for you:
Kodi “Leia” 18.2 is ready to roll. The sun is shining and the sky is blue here in western Europe,
and we’re all tied to our keyboards to bring you the latest Kodi loveliness. We’re kind like that.
In keeping with the 18.x maintenance release cycle, this is a bug fix release, with no real new functionality.
What’s worth noting, however, is how we’ve identified and managed the bugs this time.
We’ve always valued high-quality bug reports, and, for this reason,
for 18.x we implemented an issue template and an automated verification system in the GitHub issue tracker.
