Kodi at FOSDEM 2020

Kodi at FOSDEM 2020

 

Hello Belgium once again.

 

In the tradition of the last few years, members of Team Kodi will be present at FOSDEM in Brussels this weekend. If you live somewhere nearby or are attending, please feel free to come and meet some of our team members in person.

 

FOSDEM is an annual, volunteer-driven, non-commercial event that focuses on free and open source software development. It’s primarily aimed at developers, although the talks and stands are open to anyone who’s interested. Its main aim is to simply create a meeting place; it’s a fantastic opportunity for people to mix, chat, share ideas, collaborate, promote awareness, and generally interact with like-minded individuals.

 

Every year, thousands of developers from all over the world descend on the Université Libre de Bruxelles to attend. This year, there will be representatives of projects such as Gnome, Mozilla, Debian, GitLab, LibreOffice, Apache – and of course some of the Kodi team as well. We won’t have a stand this time, but in between attending talks and generally mingling, we’d love to meet with our friends in the community who might be reading this.

 

Kodi Team Meet and Greet

 

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a user or developer, whether you work with Kodi or something else, if you have commercial interests, or if you’re simply curious. Pop along if you’re interested; several Team Kodi members will be present to chat at your leisure.

 

Room J.1.106, Sunday 2nd February, 12:00-13:00.

Kore v2.5.0 Released!

 

Team Kodi are proud to announce the release of the latest version of our Kore Android remote application. Team members and other contributors have added several great new features which we think users will love. The changes for this new version includes: 

 

  • Improved PVR section: new search option, sort recordings and hide watched items.
  • Add support for sharing local files to Kodi, by using the side menu “Local Files”, or by choosing Kore as the share target for a file.
  • Allow changing Kore’s language in Settings.
  • Add new sort option for albums, movies and tv shows (by year).
  • New color themes (Sunrise and Sunset) and tweaks to the others.
  • Show all the available playlists (in the playlist screen), even when nothing’s playing.
  • New translations (Korean, Slovak)
  • Bug fixes and UI tweaks.

 

The full changelog can be found here

 

Kore is available as a free download from the Google Play Store, and also from F-Droid.
