According to the changelog, a long press feature for remote controls has been added, stretching 4:3 content to 16:9 in a way that doesn’t warp the content has been added, the roll-back button on add-on info panel has been replaced by Update, the integration of ADSP (Audio Digital Signal Processing) has been started, add date has been implemented in the music library, and many more changes have been made.
