Kodi v17.0 "Krypton" Release Candidate 4

I know a bunch of you, like me, use Kodi for your media center needs. With today's announcement of Release Candidate 4, Team Kodi is getting close to releasing their next v17 release.

Personally I'm both looking forward to, and dreading the next release of Kodi. While every new release brings exciting new features and fixes bugs, they also invariably break most of my Kodi plugins, like my MythTV PVR plugin. On top of that Kodi 17 is supposed to include a brand new completely reworked UI to replace the standard Confluence theme. This means I'm going to have to teach everyone how to use it again.

This is the fourth Release Candidate for our upcoming v17.0 "Krypton" which contains our continuous effort to further improve v17.0 before we make it final. Our team will certainly try to tackle as much of the reported problems as possible with the limited resources we have. We do want to note that since we are just a small team some of the reported bugs might not get fixed due to lack of developers or time. As such we would certainly welcome any developer who has the ability to help us out to try and fix the bugs he or she encounters and submit it to our code base for review. We sure would like to thank every one involved with either development, testing or simply helping out others with answering their questions.
