Release Kodi 18.0 Leia - Released!
#16
Almost certainly the new release will have caused total chaos for a lot of users.

As I discovered this morning, having not thought about the settings for the Windows Store and Google Play ever (yes I know, stupid me), all my Kodi builds (3 laptops, 1 HTPC and a tablet) have been updated to Kodi 18 and are now broken because the skins are not compatible.  This is a shambles and I will need several hours of work to make as many of the skins compatible as possible.  

I am not blaming the Kodi team too much for this - they are not responsible for the skins nor for me leaving auto-update on but it is absolutely the case that the Kodi team should (assuming this was technically possible) have ensured that no updating happened without the user confirming he/she wanted an update even when auto-update was set in Google Play or Windows Store.

I normally take the view that my Kodi builds will not be updated until at least XX.2 release as I do not want to be a bug tester, but here the new version has some genuinely useful features that mean I will probably update my Tablet and possible the TV build immediately.  However, I suspect a lot of less skilled users may simple abandon Kodi for a while

Yes, something is not working correctly. Wink

If you want support, create your own new forum thread in the correct forum section, and give at least more details as well as a full debug log (wiki) so we have at least something to work with.

Quartz is available from the leia repo yet still not on the skins page. Hope that gets addressed at some point because I worked hard to resurrect this skin. Wink

The only way to do that would be not to use the Play Store or Windows Store, which aren't options.

Both of those (if set to do so) will auto-update without Kodi even being running (indeed they will close it to do so if it is). Nothing we can do about it, this one is down to the user to take control of their own device settings and turn of such updates in the stores if they don't want them. Most users do though, and such is the default from Google/MS.

On Windows you can forego the store and just do a manual exe install (download from the link at the top of the page).

On Android you can also side-load, but the Play Store will still update even that if you don't tell it not to.

Nvidia Shield must have auto update.  Ugh.  I don't have any additional skins.  Best I can tell it broke the link to my NAS somehow.  Try to play anything and get an eternal spinning wheel.  Locks up.  I think I am going to have to uninstall and start over.  And that is such a pain.

It does, it runs Android. Android auto-updates by default as it does on every Android mobile phone. You can disable it.

There is no Leia for Apple TV 4/4K, because of this:

Here is some discussion about that. Read from here:

I would also be very happy to see Leia for Apple TV 4/4K.

64 bit usually installs in 'program files'.  32 bit in 'program files x86'

With Kodi 18 all my info tags are gone i start from fresh kodi 17 and test and put 1 addon and have all the info tag when i clic stop, but with kodi 18 i only see the bluray tag but no more resolution tag or audio tag. I test it on kodi 17.6 and 18 with fresh installation and only 1 addon

With kodi 18 i only see the bluray tag, with kodi 17.6 i have all the info tags 720p h264 etc

Is that add-on the XSteam one that you seem to have taken your name from, and that is on the banned addons (wiki) list?
