    Kodi "Leia" 18.6 Release

    And.... here we are again. The latest Kodi release in the 18.x "Leia" cycle, with more (count them!) and better (measure them!) bug fixes for your various delight, delectation, and delirious... discussion?

    18.6 is here. More nasty (and not-so-nasty) problems fixed, more bugs squashed, more happiness and love for all. This release is all about backports: where practical, we've brought bug fixes forwards from the forthcoming 19.x release, so you get the benefit sooner rather than later.

    As usual, you can find full details of closed pull requests on GitHub, so explore that if you want the details, but the summary would be...



    Audio

    Fixes around visualisations
    Fixes around pause/resume
    Fixes around TrueHD crashes
    Workaround firmware bug (AMLogic v23) (sidenote: there are many more Android audio fixes that can't be merged into 18.x "Leia" because of old AMLogic workarounds)
    Fix to correctly resume audio-only MPEG-TS streams
    Correct headphone enumeration (Android)
    Build System

    Updates for missing includes
    Updates for Cmake (Windows)
    Updates for device handling and packaging (macOS)
    Games

    Fixes for launching disc images and .zip files
    Fixes for black screen for RGB emulators (Rpi)
    Interface/Look-and-feel

    Fixes around TextureCache
    Fixes for windowing, refresh rate, mode change and others (Android)
    Fixes for floating/split keyboard (iOS)
    Fix for artist slideshow (Estuary)
    Fix media view from addon given content
    Playback/Display

    Fixed race condition for OnPlaybackStarted
    Fixes for MIME type (Android)
    Support for DolbyVision streams via addons
    Fixes for maximum width and height/vertical-shift (Android)
    Fix for scanning in sub-directories
    Fix size of EAGL layer on external screen (iOS)
    Fix for glTexImage3D (Linux)
    Fix for seeking issues
    Reset playlist on new file playback
    PVR

    Fix for multiline episode names
    Other/General

    Fixed incorrectly formatted region time
    Pass JSON serialised path settings to python scrapers
    Fix file access on auto-mounted sources
    Fix seeking with FileCache lockup
    Fix passthrough on USB devices (Android)
    Fix crash if profile.xml gets broken
    Fix cache forward size on EOF

    The nature of point releases is that most of these changes won't be visible to most people unless they address a specific problem you've stumbled across. That said, they're all real bugs, and real fixes, so thanks as always to all who found a bug, took the time to report it and, in some cases, provided a fix.
