    Default XBMC/Kodi 14 Is Going To Be Mostly About Cleaning Up

    Phoronix: XBMC/Kodi 14 Is Going To Be Mostly About Cleaning Up

    XBMC, which renamed itself to Kodi, is out with a new alpha release for the Kodi 14 media center software. While XBMC 13 introduced a lot of new features, Kodi 14 is going to be mostly about minor refinements...

    Not sure if vaapi rewrite with vpp, sdl drop, ffmpeg 2.x, egl support is only bugfixing :-)

    I'm surprised they're going forward with dropping SDL.

    Seems like the type of application that SDL was made for.

    I think he misread the original article. The first line goes as such:
    "Kodi 14, which we gave the codename “Helix“, is shaping up to be what is often called a “stability” release."

    But if he had read the whole thing, it then goes on to list all of the major new/dropped features (like the ones you just mentioned).

    Makes sense, they have an entire API to rename
