Thanks for the hard work guys… I notice one of the changes is avl6862 dvb driver for KVIM2 and MeCool devices… My MeCool still doesn’t show any DVB devices in TvHeadend however. Happy to work through the issue with someone if needed.

Hi, so we have an official Leia beta tag? I am asking this because I don’t see anything on My concern is if this is an official Kodi beta, because it would mean that the library database version is frozen, which is important for my shared library

It seems that the changelog is a summery of all the changes brought in through 8.90.x to this point and this release brings little new to the mix. That’s fine of course.
[removed (pointless comment)]
Probably will finally migrate from 8.90.2


Don’t know why it broken on your side…
I can search addons and it works good.

Woohoo! Well done!

Thank you so much.

If you think there is a bug then make a post in the appropriate sub-forum, hijacking news is not the place for it.

There is no official beta Tag but the Alpha cycle has ended link, none of our releases contain the official version of Kodi as the version we bundle is modified.

That’s definitely not true, a number of bugs where fixed since the last release link.



Great work ce-team, know that your efforts are much appreciated.


Thanks again CE developers for your continued attention and work on our amlogic devices.

Thanks, this release is awesome.

Indeed, I only want to say this release has been perfect so far.

I had before CE 8.90.4 and .5 which I was happy with, but now with 8.95 the GUI feels much smoother and responsive. I was surprised because the changelog didn’t show anything to expect improvement in GUI. Although I also did fresh install for 8.95 - maybe that helped.

This new release is just great, all my judder test videos (from 23.976 up to 60 fps) plays just fine on my S912 box, GUI is fluent, I really like every new release…you guys rock !

I confirm this first impression, this version is superb. Big thanks !

All that’s missing is a UHD interface to compete with Android. :smile:

No, it doesn’t.
If you want UHD interface, talk to the Kodi team.

@TheCoolest it’s not an issue for the Kodi Team, its down to the developers of skins to add support for 4K displays afaik.

Maybe, but I assume they have to add support to trigger HDR.
Either way, we’ve already discussed this, I don’t see a point to devote any more forum space to this. At least for now.

Well that would only be an issue if the skinner uses HDR textures.
