The popular development and engineering team behind the Kodi media center platform has officially released the first Release Candidate (RC1) build of Kodi 17.4 Krypton. This release follows hot on the heel of the recently available version of Kodi 17.4 Nightly builds, where were rolled out just few days ago, once again showing the hard-work and impressive pace at which the Kodi team works.

The global usage of the Kodi media software is an award-winning free and open source cross-platform and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs, that has been on the up-and-up in recent months due to the impressive rate at which new versions coming, as well as the fact that the software now supports a huge amount of platforms including Firestics, Fire TV and Android TV alongside.

Also, it seems limiting to know that RC1 is currently only available for two platforms – Android and Mac – albeit that it likely covers high percentage of devices considering that a lot of people actually use Kodi as an installation on Android-powered boxes and sticks. As it’s not the final release, which is likely that release notes will follow with the final public version for all platforms.

With Kodi 18 Leia already in the works, it is highly unlikely that Kodi 17.4 contains very enhanced functionality or feature additions which would potentially step on the toes of that new major release.
