The Kodi application development team he said the availability of the first alpha version of Kodi 19 "Matrix".
The new update comes with a long list of changes and enhancements, such as decoding for AV1, Matrix-inspired music visualization, visual subtitle enhancements, GUI enhancements for managing notches on iOS devices, and more.
This software is still in alpha, and Kodi developers warn that you will likely encounter errors. Before it is finally available to the general public, it will have to go through the alpha, beta phases and submit candidate release versions to resolve bugs.
If you are using Kodi extensions, you may also experience problems as support for Python 2 ends with this release. Extensions must be written in Python 3 for them to work properly. According to the announcement of the new version, when the developers update their add-ons in Python 3, they will be reactivated in Kodi 19. The available add-ons are reportedly increasing every week, but not everything is ready yet.
We do not know at this time when the stable version of Kodi 19 will be released, but the development team is fully focused on version 19, now that Kodi 18 released its final version.
