  • PVR.TimeShiftSeekbar
this is the equivalent of Player.Seekbar, but for LiveTV.
this infolabel can be used in a slider control and indicates the position being seeked to.

not a change in kodi, but for skins that ship with a custom script-cu-lrclyrics-main.xml file,
please remove control id="120" (and all references to it) as the cu lrc lyrics addon no longer uses it.

this control was used to display a list of available lyrics for a song, the addon will now use kodi's select dialog for this.
2020-09-09 removed infobool
  • System.Platform.Linux.RaspberryPi
this platform specific boolean condition has been removed.
you can use System.Platform.Linux instead to detect linux based systems (including the raspberry pi).
