Kodi version 17.6 has just been released. The team says this will be the final update for v17 “Krypton” that they will release.

This latest 17.6 version of Kodi includes several minor bug fixes and everyone is recommended to update. The issues addressed include a couple of crash fixes involving the joystick add-on and controller dialog, and a possible connection issue with the internal webserver. This update also includes updates to the content scrapers to the latest available versions.
