XBMC, which renamed itself to Kodi, is out with a new alpha release for the Kodi 14 media center software. While XBMC 13 introduced a lot of new features, Kodi 14 is going to be mostly about minor refinements.

Kodi 14.0 "Helix" Alpha 3 was released yesterday and it features an international keyboard layout for the virtual keyboard, auto updating of add-ons, 5.1 PCM playback for Android, the VP9 video codec now supports software multi-threading, and there's a variety of other improvements to the code-base.
