Kodi 18 “Leia” Released with Support for Gaming Emulators, DRM Support, and More

Dubbed “Leia” to honor the late Carrie Fisher, the Star Wars actress who played the iconic character Leia Princess in the acclaimed franchise, Kodi 18 is a major release that comes almost two years after the Kodi 17 “Krypton” series with numerous new features, improvements, and other noteworthy changes. Probably the biggest change in the Kodi 18 release is the implementation of support for gaming emulators, ROMs, and controls, allowing users to transform their media center into a genuine retro gaming console. The implementation also brings support for gamepads, and joysticks, and platform-specific controls.
