Kodi for Windows nearing final release, updated with new Touch-friendly UI


A few months ago Kodi posted their iconic Xbox Media Centre-derived media player to the Windows Store as a Centennial app.

The award-winning app is a free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media for HTPCs (Home theater PCs). It uses a 10-foot user interface designed to be a media player for the living-room, using a remote control as the primary input device. Its graphical user interface (GUI) allows the user to easily browse and view videos, photos, podcasts, and music from a harddrive, optical disc, local network, and the internet using only a few buttons.

Now the app has been updated to version 17, code-named Krypton, which is the release candidate.  The update also brings an improved Touch-friendly user interface called Estouchy  and other significant changes and improvements, including a smart playlists implementation on the home screen to automatically show you what probably interests you the most.
