We are happy and sad at same time to announce that this will be the last v17.x release. When we say very last this, of course, only means for the v17 "Krypton" series as we are steadily heading towards the new v18 series called "Leia". For about a year already kODI developers have been working on the upcoming v18 release and have been backporting all fixes they deemed safe enough to v17 series. However with all good things there has to come a time to say enough is enough, and that moment has come. From our point of view "Krypton" has been a great release and the Kodi group has spend a lot of time improving it since its initial release on 5 February 2017. It has also been one of the series where they did things a bit different with continuous nightly versions for testing and quite a lot of point releases with only minor fixes just because we could.
We are certainly excited about the upcoming v18 on which we will start reporting at regular basis quite soon - but, until that time, here's the v17.6 "Krypton" version for daily use. We recommend that every one upgrade to this version once it's available for their platform to have the best experience possible. If you want to know what has changed you can browse the list below.
Fixes done in this release:
- Fix possible crash in controller dialog
- Update standard scrapers to latest version available on release
