Kodi-Based LibreELEC 8.0 “Krypton” Sees New Alpha Powered by Linux Kernel 4.8.12

Based on the recently released Kodi 17.0 Beta 6 “Krypton” open-source and cross-platform media center, which brings a major “look and feel” overhaul to the Estuary skin, and powered by the most advanced Linux 4.8.12 kernel, LibreELEC (Krypton) 7.90.009 Alpha development build is here with lots of goodies and bug fixes. The hottest new features implemented in the LibreELEC 7.90.009 Alpha development release are kernel support for the Docker app container engine on Amlogic AArch64 (ARM 64-bit) devices, updated Linux kernel patches for Raspberry Pi single-board computers, and the the addition of extra device IDs to the Realtek RTL8812AU driver.
