LibreELEC 8.0 “Krypton” to Be Based on Kodi 17 Media Center, Linux Kernel 4.8

The new Alpha build, LibreELEC (Krypton) 7.90.007, is the seventh in the series, and it brings you the third Beta of the forthcoming Kodi 17 “Krypton” media center announced last week. Of course, this means that all the bug fixes and improvements implemented in Kodi 17 Beta 3 are also present in the LibreELEC 7.90.007 Alpha version, along with various other enhancements made by the team since the previous Alpha build. Another interesting change implemented in the seventh LibreELEC 8.0 Alpha milestone is a function injected into the settings add-on, which allows you to submit important log files to a paste online service if you want to help the developers fix issues in the operating system. Under the hood, LibreELEC 7.90.007 Alpha uses Linux kernel 4.7.6, iMX6 kernel 4.4.19, linux-amlogic 3.14 kernel, and Nvidia 340.98 proprietary driver.
