Last month, we announced an important security fix for all versions of OSMC and released Kodi v17.2.
OSMC’s slightly belated May update is here with a variety of improvements and fixes, including Kodi 17.3. We are now beginning the preparation of OSMC for Debian Stretch (9.0) which is expected to achieve a stable release in late June.
Here’s what’s new:
- Fix an issue preventing large debug logs from being uploaded
- Fix an issue which could cause freezes when decoding video in software on Raspberry Pi
- Fixes for erratic CEC behaviour on all platforms
- Fix an issue which could cause a booting problem on Apple TV
- Fix for a Samba security vulnerability
