Kodi 16.0 beta 4 – Jarvis released with more fixes

Just a week after Kodi 16.0 beta 3 was released, Kodi 16.0 beta 4 had been released and this release comes with more bug fixes. According to the release note, the rapid succession of these releases in a shorter period will help reduce the amount of changes that are included in each one. Instead of a huge list of changes it now only has several which gives a better overview. The advantage of that is possible regressions get picked up way faster and that you as user also get the benefit of not having to wait a long time to get these fixes.


Fixes done in this beta 4:

  • Fixed: several credentials leaking in the debuglog
  • Fixed: fix enabled status for audio DSP add-ons
  • Fixed: stop scraping album overriding tags when override tags Disabled
  • Fixed: Custom Music Node/Playlist Rule Based Queries
  • Fixed: Input.Select for PVR fullscreen windows with JSON-RPC
  • Fixed: ghost timers in EPG window
  • Fixed: sidemenu now playing buttons in Confluence
  • Fixed: mouse handling regression on Android
  • Fixed: don’t use cached results for dir checks in our Python API
  • Fixed: missing header label on clean EPG progress dialog
  • Fixed: [configure] make sure the top kodi src dir is always in INCLUDES
