For several months now, the Kodi Foundation has been very busy trying to finish the last stable version of its project, which in reality is one of the most popular and used multimedia services at the moment around the world. Although at first the software known as Kodi is widely related to the world of content piracy with auto rights, the truth is that this is a program that has been around for many years, offering a wide range of functionality in everything related to the multimedia playback. Although many, through illegal add-ons, use it to access illegal content, many others use Kodi as a player for their own photos, music, and videos, as well as to manage their libraries of these files, among other things.

While the release date of the stable version is still unknown, it should be the next release date, but it will probably be sometime before the end of January 2019.
