Kodi 16.1 and all associated addons (pvr, visualizations, etc) are being moved to main. We should have a build of the new 17 beta from upstream Debian in testing very soon, and will have the final 17 release in there as soon as possible after it's out.

I checked, and the Debian Kodi maintainer has updated to release candidate 2 in Sid--I did a test build in the OBS, and it worked--what I changed is documented in the debian/changelog file, besides changing the versioning from "+dfsg" to ".dfsg" to work around the OBS's inability to recognize the "+" character: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... ssert/kodi

The final Kodi 17.0 "Krypton", backported from upstream Debian, in now in the test repository.

Image

This features an entirely new skin, among many other changes. 16.1 remains available in our main repo for now.

Kodi’s user interfaces receive a major revision in Kodi 17.0. The new default skin Estuary has been specially designed as a 10-foot interface, while touchscreen devices have a new touch-enabled skin called Estouchy. To complete the overhaul we are now shipping Chorus2 as the default web interface. For those of you who like the previous skin, it is now available as an optional download through the add-on repository.

Our video engine is undergoing a multi-phase rewrite and Kodi 17.0 delivers the next wave of changes with improvements to stability, audio/video synchronisation, refresh rate switching and decoding/encoding of video on all platforms. New inputstream add-ons extend support for streaming protocols like RTMP, MPEG-DASH, SmoothStream and NXMSL. Other new additions include hardware-accelerated DVD playback and OpenGL dithering when performing colour conversion, and Kodi on Linux can now use 3DLUT and simple ICC profiles to colour-correct displays. Audio sinks on most platforms have also been refined.

Kodi 17.0 has numerous improvements to Live TV and PVR functionality. Changes start in the user interface with widgets for Recent Recordings and Last Played Channels on the home screen, and the ability to choose showing the PVR guide or Channel window when Kodi starts. The PVR user interface has seen much love. Channels can be sorted by Last Played. TV and Radio recordings are now shown in separate windows. There is a huge performance increase when browsing the guide window. Scheduling of recordings had a complete rewrite with both timers and timer rules now displayed in separate windows, and instant recording options can be customised. There are now 15+ PVR add-ons and most have been updated, including VDR VNSI, Tvheadend, HDHomeRun, Enigma2 and MythTV. Kodi now comes with support in the back-end for Digital Devices Octopus Net and asynchronous connections to back-ends which helps with connection stability.
