The third alpha release of the Kodi 16 HTPC open-source software is now available for testing with long-press support.

Given the number of devices these days with limited remote control buttons but relying upon a long-press of the OK/Enter button to pull up a context menu, Kodi has now implemented similar long-press support for remotes. That's the main new feature of Kodi 16 Alpha 3.

Kodi 16 Alpha 3 also has finger touchpad mapping in iOS, support for the stereoscopic depth effect for Kodi on 3D TVs or VR headsets, unification of the Music and Files components, and various bug-fixes.

More details on this new development release of Kodi 16 can be found via Kodi.tv.
