Yes...I said gorgeous.

I've just discovered Kodi 17 whilst browsing the t'internet and have to say, in comparison to it's previous build it looks amazing with its new Estuary and Estouchy themes.

I've just popped it onto a Fire TV stick with no issues. It seems to be running really well.

Bumpf from Android Central...

"Kodi version 17 is bringing a new look to the app that turns your Android device into a media center. Some of you may still recall the open source project by its old name, XBMC. Either way, the upcoming release has reached beta status. That makes now a good time to dive in if you can't wait to get what's coming next.

This release brings the new Estuary and Estouchy themes for big screens and mobile devices, which we detailed in version 17's changes back when the first nightly builds became available in March. The developers have shown off the experience in a YouTube video.

Other changes include a redesigned Settings area (pictured above), an improved music library, and Live TV/DVR tweaks. You can grab Kodi from the project's download page, and check out the source link below for a more detailed look at the changes."

Looks good, thanks for sharing. Getting it on my Android box now X)

Looking good. It needed a front end overhaul tbh. Great credit to the devs

Why does it still say kodi 16 on the second screen shot?

That's the RSS feed.

Wait, this is the latest front end you've now been given? My decade old WD TV box has a better dashboard than this. Ok so very similar to plex's design now which is certainly a good thing.

hopefully not too long for the officia final l version. Prefer the automatic update from google playstore
than messing around with updates. But looks great. Thanks for the update Buzz
