Kodi va bientôt débarquer en version 15.0

Le chouchou des logiciels MediaCenter va bientôt bénéficier d’une mise à jour importante, vers la version 15.0.

Mais au fait, quels sont les principaux changements de cette version ? 

Kodi, le MediaCenter idéal pour gérer vos nombreux films

On note surtout l’arrivée du support de la fameuse 4K sur certains appareils sous Android 5.0 possédant une solide puce graphique, comme la Shield de NVidia.

Plus de 1000 demandes ont été réglées suite aux nombreux retours des utilisateurs de la version 14.2 de Kodi, qui vont permettre à cette version 15.0 de s’améliorer grandement et d’être aussi plus stable.

Cette version sera aussi la première à être disponible sur le Google Play des terminaux Android, car il s’agit véritablement de la version la plus travaillée pour tourner au poil sur le système d’exploitation de Google. Une avancée bienvenue pour les utilisateurs sur Android, qui pourront enfin bénéficier des dernières mises à jour de manière automatique.

Notez enfin que la première Release Candidate est d’ors et déjà disponible au téléchargement si vous souhaitez la tester et faire les premiers retours aux développeurs avant la sortie officielle de la version 15.0 d’ici quelques semaines.

De nombreuses autres modifications ont été apportées par cette version 15.0, mais la liste est si longue que je vous copie/colle celle présente sur le site de Kodi ^^
