Kodi v17 – A New Look Headlines What’s New

Kodi, the most popular cross-platform media center is getting a face-lift (or two) to headline it’s new change-set. Kodi has shipped with the theme “Confluence” for about 6 years now, so it’s face-lift will be a welcome change for many users. Kodi will get two new default skins, one for TV’s (named “Estuary”) and another for touch-enabled devices (named “Estouchy”).

Kodi has always allowed users to install their own theme, but this is the first time in quite sometime users will see a new skin upon install. Of course, if you hate it, you can always go back to the old school “Confluence” theme.

Keep in mind that as of this writing, these themes are only available in v17 Krypton, which is still in Alpha stages of development. While there are a few other changes, including some cool API updates for LiveTV plugins, so far, this update’s headliner is definitely the new look.
