The fourth alpha release for Kodi 16 "Jarvis" is available this Sunday for testing.

Kodi 16 Alpha 4 brings Android Surface Rendering support to improve the display output for Android devices, drops libstagefright in favor of Android's maturing MediaCodec implementation, changes to the add-on manager, drops support for the karaoke mode, and adds multi-touch support on Linux.

There are many other changes too, so if you're a user of this open-source HTPC software be sure to check it out the release announcement at Kodi.tv. It's looking like the official Kodi 16 release isn't too far out now.
