Just released today Kodi 16.0 Jarvis. Here are some of the changes according to the official press release from Kodi.TV. For those who have custom builds, you might want to wait and see if your build’s skin is compatible with Kodi 16.0.

What did change in Kodi 16:

  • • Implement the more future proof DirectX11 for Windows which still works for DirectX9 video cards;

  • • Event logging which among others shows which video files didn’t got added to your library;

  • • Skin settings are now stored as separate files like any other add-on which makes migrating settings a lot easier;

  • • Image resource add-ons which provide a single point of entry for skins to share common used images like movie studio icons and record labels which saves quite a lot of space and bandwidth;

  • • Audio DSP  (Digital Signal Processing)  add-on integration and are already included which could make things possible like equalizers, sound processing, fake surround and more

  • • Music library improvements which includes asking to scan to library when adding locations and also better tag scanning

  • • Button long-press which extends the functionality of a single button to handle two functions which is great for button deprived remotes

  • • User interface now supports a new stereoscopic depth effect for 3D TVs or VR headsets

  • • Extend the UPnP server/client integration between Kodi installations

  • • Android now support a Surface Rendering which keeps the interface at normal HD resolution while allows playback of 4K on supported devices

  • • Removal of the infamous libstagefright on Android  which served us for the past year while the Android platform matured to a fully fetaured MediaCodec

  • • Add-on manager underwent heavy changes which includes slightly different structure, per add-on auto-update on/off switch, better update/rollback support to choose from repos,

  • • Extend the included keyboard layouts which includes Korean and Chinese

  • • Improved multi-touch support which now also works on Linux

  • • Gives skin developers a more reliable platform to work from and reduce amount of work for adapting to new Kodi versions
