The final release of Kodi version 16.1 was released. This cross-platform media center software is developed for Windows, OS X, Linux, Android and iOS. In version 16.0, inter alia, the transfer from DirectX 9 made to 11, there is support for 4: 3 Non-linear Stretch added so that old television series are well displayed and settings of the appearance of Kodi now stored separately and not along with the other system settings. Furthermore, there may also be assigned functions by remote control when a button is pressed and there are enhancements to the add-on manager. Version 16.1 is called a maintenance release and contains mostly bug fixes.

Once a ‘final’ version was released some new bugs and / or problems Usually appearacne out of nowhere, and this release is no exception. Eventhough tens of thou sands of users were already testing the 16.0 version before release and we as team trying very hard to preventable any problems, as soon as millions start using the released version some problems We either did not think or or All which we did not notice before pop up. To counter some of These new issues, we’re bringing you this maintenance release called 16.1-which HAS some additional fixes on top of the 16.0

It shouldering be ok to just install this on top of your current Kodi 16.0 version without uninstalling previous version. For the MySQL users out there; We never bump the database versions in our bugfix or maintenance releases – you can safely keep using it within your network.
