The issue has been added to the development team's backlog. The goal for issues with this status is to address them in a near-term release (next release or two). Check the issue's Additional Information or Alternate Solution section to see if there is helpful information until it can be fully addressed.
Add the KML layer as an item from the web. For this to work, users need the URL path to the specific KML layer. For example, www.arcgis.com/KMLSample.kml.
