Kodi has come a long ways from its early days as XBMC and continues to only get better.
Kodi 17.3 Krypton is the newest version of Kodi to be released and has some major interface changes.
To test it out go to the Kodi download page and download it here. https://kodi.tv/download/
At first the interface looks very different from the old Kodi interface but underneath there is a lot of familiarity.
The new default Skin is called Estuary.
Kodi 17 Krypton has some big upgrades and improvements over previous versions.
Beside the updated Estuary Skin interface many new features are being added to Kodi 17 including native support for Amilogic ARM 4K chips, Android de-interlacing to improve live TV streams and much more.
