XBMC Is Getting a New Name – Introducing Kodi 14

Aug 02, 2014, 14:00 (0 Talkback[s])

We are excited to announce that the media center software we’ve all loved for so many years will have a new name, starting with version 14. Instead of XBMC 14, we’d like to introduce you to Kodi 14.

Support for the Xbox was dropped shortly thereafter. Today it’s all happening one last time.
