Kodi upgrade warning


#1

Will we get advance warning before the next Kodi upgrade?

The last Kodi upgrade was not a big win for the Spousal Acceptance Factor [almost no skin support, various other things not working etc].

This time I’d like to know in advance when to turn auto-updates off so I can avoid the ‘upgrade’ until everything is working.

Watch the Kodi blog for the announcement. It usually takes OSMC at least a couple days, sometimes a week or more, to get our build patched and tested before we release.

Yes.

We’ve given advance warnings since Kodi v17.

It would probably make more sense to turn upgrades off now and then also follow https://osmc.tv/blog/.

If the blog advises a release that is not yet v18, you can simply go initiate a manual update, but you won’t be surprised by anything.
