LibreELEC is an open source project which focuses on Linux based operating system for home theatre usage and has Kodi as the main interface. Libreelec has a new version which can be enjoyed by TV box owners. This is basically a fork of OpenELEC operating system.
Changes include support for Raspberry Pi 4 “with initial release support for 1080p playback behaviour and performance on the 4B are broadly on-par with the previous 3B/3B+ model, except for HEVC media which is now hardware decoded and massively improved. New 4K video capabilities still have plenty of rough edges to be smoothed out”.
Rockchip support is still limited with no significant video/audio improvements to the Rockchip 4.4 kernel codebase.
Amlogic devices get nightly images instead of full stable release.
