Mediacenter Kodi: Britische Polizei nimmt Addon-Entwickler fest
« Antwort #150 am: 20 Juni, 2019, 14:14 »
Ein Entwickler eines Addons für die Mediensoftware Kodi wurde in England festgenommen. Mehrere Erweiterungen wurden nach der Festnahme abgeschaltet.

Die britische Polizei ist gegen den Entwickler eines Addons für die Mediensoftware Kodi vorgegangen. Im englischen Winsford wurde ein 40-jähriger Mann von einer Organised Crime Unit festgenommen, teilten die Behörden mit. Den Hinweis habe die Polizei von der britischen Urheberrechtsorganisation Federation Against Copyright Theft bekommen. Das Haus des Verdächtigen wurde durchsucht, Beweismittel sichergestellt. Der Entwickler wurde befragt, befindet sich mittlerweile gegen Kaution aber wieder auf freiem Fuß.

Kodi ist eine Mediacenter-App, über die Nutzer Inhalte sammeln und abspielen können. Für die Software gibt es zahlreiche unabhängige Erweiterungen, die Usern teilweise auch Zugriff auf urheberrechtlich geschütztes Material geben. Dem verdächtigten Engländer wird vorgeworfen, ein solches Addon mit illegalen Online-Streams betrieben zu haben. "Das Ausmaß des Vergehens war signifikant und hat Sender und Rechteinhaber in Großbritannien und weltweit betroffen", schreiben die Behörden in einem Statement. Die Untersuchung gehe weiter.

Mehrere Addons gehen offline

Welches Addon der Verdächtige geführt hat, geht aus der Stellungnahme nicht hervor. Die Torrent-Website TorrentFreak weist aber darauf hin, dass am Tag der Festnahme ein beliebtes Kodi-Addon namens Supremacy abgeschaltet wurde. Supremacy listet Inhalte auf, die an anderer Stelle im Netz veröffentlicht wurden, darunter neben Sport auch Spielfilme und TV-Shows.

In den Tagen nach der Festnahme sollen auch weitere bekannte Kodi-Addons den Betrieb eingestellt haben. Laut TorrentFreak verabschieden sich zum Beispiel die Entwickler von Overeasy, Maverick und 13Clowns. Manche Erweiterungen wurden laut TorrentFreak per Update komplett deaktiviert, andere werden nicht mehr zur Installation angeboten.

Die Entwickler nennen keine Gründe für den Schritt, ein Zusammenhang mit der Festnahme scheint aber naheliegend. Die Rechtslage zu Kodi-Erweiterungen ist unklar: Laut Torrentfreak wurde bisher noch kein Kriminalverfahren gegen einen Addon-Entwickler geführt.

Kodi "Leia" 18.3
« Antwort #151 am: 27 Juni, 2019, 21:30 »
Zitat
wo months have passed since our last bugfix release and already we have a new one ready for consumption. Fancy a few more features? There aren't any, with one teeny-tiny exception. Apparently DTS-HD audio only tracks are a thing and Kodi can now play them like any other music format. That's it. No more features. Seriously.

However, since Kodi 18.3 is a bugfix release, we have a boatload of erm... fixes. In fact, too many to mention. Below is a non-exhaustive list of (mostly) usability fixes.

Changelog

Estuary

    Fixed favourites widget not scrolling properly on 16:10 displays
    Fixed API button was not reachable with a mouse on Settings window
    Fixed Skin Settings window scrollbar focus
    Fixed order of TV Show title and Episode title in Video Info dialog
    Added Search button to the side menu in the Video and Music windows
    Fixed Wall and Infowall views scroll to bottom on certain aspect-ratios
    Fixed broken side menu navigation in the Addon Browser window

PVR

    Fixed a Group Manager crash when adding a new group
    Fixed EPG UI corruption and/or EPG data not showing with newly added channels
    Fixed PVR guide window channel data being overwritten

Music

    Added support for DTS-HD audio tracks
    Fixed wrong album or artist thumb art being picked from scraper results

Kodi "Leia" 18.7 erschienen
« Antwort #155 am: 22 Mai, 2020, 09:06 »
Release Notes

You may have noticed that we've adopted a RERO approach to Kodi - release early, release often. Our aim is to fix problems more quickly, and then get those fixes out into the wild equally as quickly. This might mean some issues escape alongside the bug fixes, but, overall, it should mean better software, sooner, and without the disruption of a major version bump.

So, with no further fanfare: another release in the Kodi 18.x "Leia" cycle. The usual rules apply: bug fixes, not new features or functionality; most will be invisible, but will be much-appreciated if you're been suffering from a problem we've managed to address.

You can find full details of closed pull requests on GitHub, so explore that if you want the details, but TL;DR...

    Fixes around realtime handling of TS streams

    Fix for watch icons not showing when content type is not set (Estouchy)
    Fix navigation in skinsettings (Estuary)
    Fix crash in favourites dialog
    Apply safe area insets to Kodi GUI (iOS)

Kodi "Leia" 18.8 Release
« Antwort #156 am: 29 Juli, 2020, 18:00 »
Release Notes

So, here we are again. Those of you with eagle eyes may already have seen this rolling out, but just to make everyone else aware - 18.8 is here. In our ongoing quest to make your lives as simple and fulfilling as possible, we're proud to present what is likely to be the final release in the 18.x "Leia" series, before all effort now shifts to 19.x "Matrix".

As usual, this is a bug fix release, so don't go looking for new features. Full details are on GitHub, but here's the short form... as you'd expect this late in the 18.x development cycle, this isn't a huge release, but it does include some things we thought were necessary to keep us going until the next major release emerges. In summary, this version:

    Fixes a severe security issue in gnutls (Linux)
    Other significant library/compatibility updates
    Gets client/server on MariaDB 10.5.4 working for Android
    Fixes video database access for Ubuntu 20.4 (search and other filtering failed)
    Fixes subtitle handling from archives
    Fixes CDDB access
    Makes minor improvements to logging and memory reporting/display
    Fixes EDLs where skip points are at the very start of a file
    Contains code improvements to fix specific events, e.g. race conditions in the EPG or "pause" on end of streams on Android
    Enables alpha blending for the video player (Windows)
    Better handles specific exceptions (Android, mostly)

Kodi 19.x "Matrix" - Alpha 1
« Antwort #157 am: 08 August, 2020, 21:30 »
Release Notes

So, here we go. Hot on the heels of what is intended to be the final release in the 18.x "Leia" series, it's time to give you good people a taste of things to come. So, with no further ado, we'd like to present the first Alpha releases of Kodi 19.x "Matrix".

This is a major release, so, as you'd expect, it comes with many new features. However, it will inevitably cause problems for some people, which is why we'll go through a more traditional Alpha/Beta/Release Candidate model. As such, then, please be aware that installing this will inevitably break things, and we'd really like your help at that point to identify the problems and get them fixed.

So, all that aside... what's actually changed?

Audio/Music

    Improved handling of multi-disc CD sets and box sets
    Additional metadata tags
    Improved handling of album release dates
    New setting to open music fullscreen/visualisation window automatically when playback is started
    A new, Matrix-inspired music visualisation is now available to install - great care has been put into making this perform well on lower-end systems

Video

    Software decoding of the AV1 CODEC

Subtitles

    Subtitle opacity can now be changed
    New dark grey colour for subtitles

Estuary Skin

    Redesign of the music fullscreen/visualisation window to match other fullscreen windows - allows fanart and visualisations to be shown without coloured overlays
    Additional media info flags added to music fullscreen/visualisation window info display
    The default Playlist view now uses the Widelist view format with options on the sideblade menu as in other areas of the skin
    A new "Now Playing" view added for music playback, showing media details for both any selected song in the playlist and those for any currently playing song

Games

    iOS now supports game controllers (Xbox/PlayStation/other supported Bluetooth controllers)

Platform Specifics

    Darwin (Apple) platforms:
        Objective-C code migrated from manual memory management to ARC

    iOS:
        Added showing total/free space
        Kodi log can now be shared using native sharing sheet
        Kodi GUI is no longer obscured on devices with notch

    macOS:
        Blank Other Displays setting no longer requires app restart
        "Toggle fullscreen" now uses default macOS shortcut

    Android:
        Static HDR10 support for all source types (if supported by the device)
        Dynamic Dolby Vision HDR support for streaming services (if supported by the device)

    Windows:
        Static HDR10 support for all source types (if supported by the GPU)

Information Providers (scrapers)

    New python scrapers for music - available in repo as Generic Album Scraper and Generic Artist Scraper

PVR

    PVR reminders

    Kodi will now enforce the origin of installed add-ons and their dependencies. This has been implemented to prevent third party repositories from overwriting code of unrelated add-ons, which was the cause of numerous error reports in the past.
    Improved support around official repos, allowing users some safeguards when installing private repositories

Addons

    Probably the biggest change: with this release, we move to Python 3 for addons (see note below).
    Kodi will now enforce the origin of installed addons and their dependencies. This has been implemented to prevent third party repositories from overwriting code of unrelated add-ons, which was the cause of numerous error reports in the past.

Kodi 19.x "Matrix" - Alpha 2
« Antwort #158 am: 06 Oktober, 2020, 19:10 »
Release Notes

It's been more than a month since our last "preview" release, so it's time we boxed up something new for everyone.

The usual drill applies: this is an alpha, some things will be broken, your home is at risk if something goes wrong, it might run off with your partner, don't blame us if it eats your kittens. Otherwise, though, all should be fine.

Latest changes:

Playback

    Music: Display album duration in info dialog. Album duration can be used in smart playlists in the same way as for songs
    Music: Read tags and and album art from music files served from an http(s) server
    Music: Fix list view of files containing multiple streams
    Feature: Audio decoder addons can now pass more information on Kodi (album, year, notes ...)
    Audio decoder addons can now pass more information to Kodi (album, year, notes ...)

Subtitles

    ASS: Fixed timestamp overlapping overlays

Skin/Look-and-Feel

    Improvements to both music and video library artwork
        Better "out the box" behaviour, optionally use all image files found in media folders
        Artwork levels - max, basic, custom, none
        GUI settings for custom configuration of whitelists (replacing awkward editing of advancedsettings.xml)
    Redesigned SeekBar that will auto-hide when video playback is paused

Platform Specifics

    Apple TV
        Fix Kodi crash on start after a manual install with dpkg -i command (jailbroken devices only)
        Fix TopShelf feature after a manual install with dpkg -i command (jailbroken devices only except Unc0verTV devices, needs investigation)
        Fix missing thumbs on TopShelf items

Python/Addons

    Fix scripts/plugins not being notified of abortRequest intents on app close
    Deprecate xbmc.translatepath in favour of xbmcvfs.translatepath towards convergence with the binary addon API
    Broken/deprecated add-ons are now highlighted in the add-on list, and you're now prompted when you try to activate one
    Fix: Prevent VFS addon changes (update, disable and uninstall) if in use
    Fix: VFS addon problem, where Kodi needed a restart before showing a newly-installed version
    Binary addon system revised to ensure higher security in data exchange between addon and Kodi (only inputstream missing)
    Revised binary add-on system documentation for outside developers (only inputstream missing)
    Internal binary add-on settings dialogs cleaned up, plus updated help text (audioencoder.kodi.builtin.aac, audioencoder.kodi.builtin.wma, screensaver.xbmc.builtin.dim)

If you're bold, brave (and possibly a wearing a red shirt), you can get Alpha 2 from here. Again, though, please - and adopting a more serious note - expect some breakage, and don't use this as your daily installation unless you know how to get things working again. If you do make the move and install it, however, please do share your experiences back with us so we can really get going on those bugs.

Kodi 19.x "Matrix" - Beta 1
« Antwort #159 am: 22 November, 2020, 20:50 »
Release Notes

Lights! Camera! Action!

... nearly. It's Beta time for Kodi 19.x "Matrix", so let's take another step towards the Great Unveiling.

As we now move into Beta, this release is much more about fixes than features: while there will be the odd new functionality, we're concentrating very much more on getting everything working properly from this point.

To recap, then, one of the main objectives of 19.x "Matrix" is to release a production version of Kodi with Python 3 addons as early in 2021 as we can. That can only happen with enthusiastic community support, lots of good humour and willingness to see the best in others - well, that and coffee/beer (delete as applicable), of course!

Why Python 3? Simply, because Python 2 went end-of-life in January 2020, so the whole IT industry is lurching over to the new platform. It's generally taking a long time, but it's necessary if you want active support, bugfixes, the latest third-party libraries, security patches, and the like. You can see some of Kodi's announcements about this change in previous blog posts.

Beyond that, though, here's a quick recap of the major new features in 19.x "Matrix" - as well, of course, as many fixes and code changes that won't be as obvious:

Audio/Music

    Improvements covering multi-disc CD sets and box sets; metadata improvements such as better handling of album release dates, album durations, etc.; new fullscreen/visualisation settings; new Matrix-inspired visualisation; support for file tags over http(s).

Music Videos

    Improved links with the music library to e.g. fetch related album/artist information, display both videos and albums when searching, display more linked information in info dialogs, etc.; improvements around grouping of all music videos by artist (vs album only); enhanced .nfo handling for multiple performers.

Skin/Look-and-Feel

    Multiple improvements to Estuary, particularly around music and music videos, including: a redesign of the fullscreen/visualisation music window; additional metadata display; new “Now Playing” view; chapter information for music videos; enhanced “now playing” and “next item” views; a generally improved “out of the box” behaviour with regard to music and video library artwork.

Games

    Improved game controller support on iOS; improvements to image quality in Pixel Art games.

Playback

    Software decoding of AV1;subtitle improvements with new dark grey colour and selectable opacity; ability to provide a subtitle URI (URL, local file, etc.); static HDR10 and dynamic Dolby Vision HDR support (platform- and client-dependent).       

PVR

    A host of improvements, including PVR reminders; TV/Radio channel groups, home screen widgets and dynamic PVR categories for Estuary; enhancements to the Group and Channel manager; navigation/usability improvements such as context menus, selection persistence, and EPG controls; info dialog enhancements; improvements to PVR handling via the API.

Security

    Various improvements to user information, e.g. the security implications of enabling external interfaces or a prompt when enabling a broken/deprecated addon; a requirement for a web interface password by default; new origin enforcement for addons and dependencies, so third-party addons can’t overwrite code of other, unrelated addons.

Information Providers/Scrapers

    New Python scrapers for music, TV and movies (linked to the Python 3 move).

... plus many code and platform-specific fixes and improvements that might be less visible to most users, but are still significant, such as the move to a single Linux binary for multiple windowing systems (X11, Wayland, and GBM).

Kodi "Matrix" 19.1
« Antwort #162 am: 09 Mai, 2021, 19:30 »
Zitat
It is a truth universally acknowledged that, no matter how much testing you do before a major release, you'll never find and squash anything like all the bugs until you get a proper, large-scale, mass test of the code. In other words, it's time for a bugfix release on the Kodi 19 "Matrix" series, as - thanks to your feedback - we've managed to fix a whole batch of issues over the past few weeks.

In no particular order, this version includes fixes for the following:

As a bug fix release, don't bother going to look for new features; while there are some, that's not the main purpose of this version. Full details are on GitHub, but here's the short form...

Changelog

Video

    Fixed: HDR metadata is now detected in VP9 profile 2 streams and can be used on platforms that support HDR passthrough or tone mapped when playing this kind of videos.

Discs

    Fixed: playback of optical DVDs in Linux
    Fixed: BD-J Blu-ray chapter skipping via remotes/keyboard

PVR

    Fixed: context menu not accessible in PVR Guide window when using very basic remote to control Kodi
    Fixed: client channel name and number not persisted when changed
    Fixed: play count and resume position of recordings lost after Kodi restart
    Fixed: crash while browsing the EPG when MySQL is used as EPG database
    Fixed: next recording on ... label time is not localized in Estuary Timer/Timer rules window
    Fixed: channel manager does not rename backend channel
    Fixed: playing archived programme not selected when opening the Guide window
    Fixed: GUI not updated on removal/insert/hide/unhide of channel groups
    Updated: improved look of PVR windows in Estuary

Music Library

    Fixed: issue with music from cuesheets where only the first track was being added to the library on rescanning, with the rest being deleted

JSON-RPC

    Fixed: PVR - Reintroduced broadcast properties 'hastimer', 'hastimerrule', 'hasrecording', 'recording'
    Fixed: PVR - Reintroduced channel property 'isrecording'

Subtitles

    Fixed: detection of system fonts (directwrite) on windows for ASS subtitles
    Fixed: detection of user fonts (in userdata/fonts) for ASS subtitles
    Fixed: rendering of semi-transparent ASS subtitles on Wayland

GUI/Interface

    Fixed: media flagging for DVD/BluRay

Web Interface

    Updated: Chorus2 based on community contributions

Filesystem

    Updated: enable filecaching by default for network filesystems
    Updated: improve filecache error handling

Network

    Updated: improved reliability for HTTP and NFS network filesystems

Windows specifics

    Added: support for WS-Discovery protocol that enables locating SMB servers and browsing shared folders using SMBv3.
    Added: debug Info OSD Video. Extends current Debug Info Player (Ctrl+Shift+O) with new video-only info (Alt+O)
    Fixed: with some unusual streams, incorrect HDR metadata could be passed (HDR10 passthrough).
    Fixed: green screen on systems with old HW (DX feature level 9.1) playing 10-bit videos.
    Fixed: black screen with Software render method and with DXVA2 hardware acceleration disabled.
    Fixed: green screen when playing the menu of some DVDs (MPEG2 SD only).
    Fixed: credentials being requested for anonymous SMB shares
    Updated: VC runtimes included in the installer to add compatibility with VS2019 and VS2017 at the same time.

Android specifics

    Fixed: SMB shares mounted on system level not visible in Kodi
    Fixed: SMB shares labelled with cryptic numbers (UUID) instead of actual disk name

Xbox specifics

    This version also brings 19.1 to the Xbox - while 19.0 has been in the Microsoft Store since launch, this was Windows-only while we found a way to adequately test the new release on Xbox. We've fixed that now, so Xbox users will automatically upgrade from 18.9 to 19.1 if you've got auto-update enabled. It's worth mentioning that there's a known memory limitation - present in 18.x as well - that causes Xbox application crashes with 4k content, so please be aware.
