LibreELEC Embedded Linux OS Now Compatible with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The LibreELEC 8.2.1 update is based on the latest Kodi 17.6 “Krypton” open-source and cross-platform media center software and it mostly patches some Samba (SMB) “file exists” share errors on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update by updating the protocol to Samba 4.6.10, implementing SMB client options for minimum SMB protocol and an SMB legacy security option with NTLMv1, and disabling SPNEGO. The new SMB client configuration options were implemented in Kodi’s settings to allow users to set a minimum SMB protocol version, which prevents the vulnerable and deprecated SMB1 protocol from being used when sharing files. It also implements a “legacy security” option that improves USB sharing on older NAS and router devices.
