23-05-2019 - Removed strings.xml support (PR)

Kodi Matrix no longer supports the long deprecated strings.xml format. All addons must comply to the strings.po format. See
Thanks. There is an error in the wiki. Currently the wiki shows in the example
#empty string with id 32003
But if I use it that way, Travis gives a syntax error on the strings.po when submitting the files
Travis only accepts when there is a space after the hash as follows
# empty string with id 32003
Kodi 18.3 x64 Windows | LibreElec 9 RR S905X
thx, corrected

03-06-2019 - xbmc.Monitor().onDatabaseUpdated() and xbmc.Monitor().onDatabaseScanStarted() were removed  (PR)

Both monitor class methods were deprecated since Helix in favor of onScanStarted() and onScanFinished(). Any uses of the deprecated methods should be adjusted to the current counterparts.
