Software Update: Kodi 14.2

Version 14.2 of Kodi has been released. Kodi is the new name for XBMC Media Center and this cross platform media center software is developed for Windows, OS X, Linux, Android, iOS, AppleTV and the Raspberry Pi. Version 14.0, codenamed Helix, contains no major changes other than the new name, but is referred to by the developers as a stability release. There is, however, a newer version of ffmpeg, which now also makes it possible to play h265 files. Version 14.2 fixes several issues, including stability issues affecting Windows users.
