Da pochi giorni è disponibile un aggiornamento per questo software, che arriva quindi alla versione “Matrix” 19.1. Le novità sono praticamente nulle: questo update infatti porta tantissime correzioni di bug e problemi introdotti con la major release di cui vi abbiamo parlato un paio di mesi fa.
Vi lasciamo quindi al changelog completo e vi ricordiamo che Kodi “Matrix” 19.1 è già scaricabile dal sito ufficiale o, nel caso in cui sia già installato, è disponibile come aggiornamento software.

- This version also brings 19.1 to the Xbox – while 19.0 has been in the Microsoft Store since launch, this was Windows-only while we found a way to adequately test the new release on Xbox. We’ve fixed that now, so Xbox users will automatically upgrade from 18.9 to 19.1 if you’ve got auto-update enabled. It’s worth mentioning that there’s a known memory limitation – present in 18.x as well – that causes Xbox application crashes with 4k content, so please be aware.
