This is the first small bugfix release in the Helix range. As we have mention in our Kodi 14.0 release announcement, we will be releasing these to squash down any issues left after the first final release.
What is new in version 14.0:
This release marks the switch to the new name Kodi. When you install this releases , your library and add-ons will be moved to Kodi, making reverting back to 13.2 fairly difficult. As such, it is recommended that you back up your library as well as your settings before installing Kodi.

Library Improvements: The Kodi Library is getting improvements both coming in and going out.
More User Control Over Kodi: Two new features have been introduced with Kodi that should give users even more control over how the software works.
