2014-11-24 Rebrand

last, but certainly not least, we would like to request all skinners to check their skin for references to 'XBMC'.
you may be using it as a text label in your skin, or maybe you're showing a XBMC logo somewhere in your skin, etc...

we would very much appreciate it if you could change all those references to 'Kodi'.

should you need some Kodi artwork for your skin: Official:Media_center_logos (wiki)

please read our logo usage guidelines
