Just to show how ground breaking Aeon was, this Aeon Mod is now MeediOS's default theme I believe Wink

this is fantastic news! I've loved that skin since using XBMC back in 2008... anyone know what month we are realistically looking at in terms of a release? Always happy to test :-)

There was a point during the original Aeon where it felt like there couldn't be enough media flags dotted all over the place, but that time has passed. I don't think user ratings are relevant to someone's personal media collection, for example, nor do I think having loads of technical data like aspect ratio and resolution is very 2017. You can forget about weather, too.

User ratings pertaining to the IMDB rating that shows up, like 7.0/10 (15,000 users)? That is something essential for me. My wife uses them all the time to decide on what to watch. (anything under a certain rating she refuses to watch). Please say that will stick around. Im anxious to check out the new aeon, it was really the showcase of my XBMC back in the day.

Wow, this was the best christmas gift ever. I loved Aeon for so many years, and by the looks of this mockups. It looks unreal (in a good way).

Here's a concept for what'll happen when you push down while on the home screen. Click for 1080p.

Welcome back djh, this looks great! Very professional.
Finally some icons that explain what they actually do! Haha

Looks a bit hard to see the main menu text with that highly transparent gradient behind it, might be a good idea to offer a solid bar for that.

I realise you said that you'll probably stick to one view for all windows, which I agree with for the most part.. But please consider adding a thumbnail/poster wall style view for media libraries. Being able to see movie covers when navigating the library helps when deciding what to watch instead of scrolling through a large list of 1000 odd movies, can be a bit tiring having to read the title of every list entry.

This looks fantastic, very fresh clean, user friendly and professional. This is exactly the sort of skin kodi should come packed with out of the box... It makes the new estuary look old already lol there's just no need for all those silly widgets.

Question, do you have a cencept for how the submenu entries will look? Vertical or horizontal? Or will the submenu items be accessed from within the windows?

Can't wait for this.
Keep it up!

More in-Kodi stuff. Not to be considered final quality or design, obv. If the elements look oddly aligned it's because there's a parallax scrolling effect when you pull up the home screen menu.
