The Kodi development team has released version 18 after a long wait. In the past, I have shown you how to install the beta version of Kodi 18 Leia, but it was full of bugs at that point and not really useable other than just to take a look at it and see what’s new. Now, with the official release, you can use Kodi 18 as your current version with almost no problems. Some of your older add-ons may not be compatible, however, but if it were me, I would think this is a great time to do a fresh install of Kodi and install a high-quality build on top of it like No Limits Magic Build.
