Original Post:

A Kodi 17 download is now available! The beta of Kodi is now released, which officially takes Kodi 17 from development stage into pre-release!

Disclaimer: Beta still means that Kodi 17 is being worked on and fine-tuned. The version may not be stable enough for your main Kodi box yet and is not going to be 100% working. One of the biggest changes you’ll read below is that Android 4.4 and lower support is being dropped, so at the very least take this as a warning sign if you are looking for a new Kodi box soon.

Kodi 17 Krypton Changes and Improvements

  • Brand new default skins! Gone is Confluence and in is Estuary and Estouchy (optimized for tablets).
  • Improvements to DVDPlayer, which allow for playback of DVD discs/files.
  • Updates to videorendering and openGL drivers.
  • Complete rewrite of audio/video syncing (less offset audio).
  • Improved playback of live streams. Internal buffers no longer fill up!
  • Input stream add-ons – Add-ons can now be written to support multiple stream qualities or camera angles and you can select this on the fly in Kodi. For example, a stream might be offered in 540p, 720p, or 1080p and you can now switch on-the-fly in Kodi.
  • Kodi PVR settings improved.
  • Full HD audio passthrough support in Android.
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop minimum. This means Android 4.4, which is now 2.5 years old, is not supported by Kodi. This should give you a good baseline for which Kodi boxes to avoid buying online.
  • Custom AMLogic Kodi code has been turned off, which is one of the reasons that Android 4.4 firmware is no longer supported.
  • If installing third-party add-ons, you have to acknowledge that the add-on is not supported by the Kodi foundation.
  • You can now view which add-ons have been installed or updated.
  • Settings section has now been made more clear.
  • Music library improvements – tag reading and scraping, improved artists handling.
  • Tons of other improvements.
