Kodi (formerly XBMC) is the most used media center applications, and the next major version is in the works for the past couple of months, during which it received a total of three Alpha milestones, one internal and two public. Dubbed Krypton, Kodi 17 is now in Beta stages of development, and the final release promises a huge amount of improvements. Since Kodi 17 “Krypton” Alpha 3, which arrived on the first day of August, the development team managed to add various minor fixes reported by those who managed to test drive the third Alpha build, as well as a bunch of under the hood improvements, in particular for the new Estuary and Estouchy skins, the Music Library, Live TV and PVR/DVR components, as well as the Settings section.
