so no AMD Ryzen with vega until next wave of alphas in kodi 19?

Yes, as things stand LibreELEC 9.0 will be released with 4.14.y, as that's the current LTS kernel.

LibreELEC 10.0 will (probably) use the next LTS kernel (4.19.y, maybe 4.20.y) once it becomes available, but that kernel may not be released for another 12 months or more. Kodi 19 could be around before the next LTS is released in which case LE 10 alphas will continue with the old LTS (without support for Ryzen/Vega).  
I see.
That seems like an odd decision to me that something that lies in the forefront on multimedia Kodi /LibreElec should choose to use a potentially dated kernel.
Isn't LTS kernels really meant for enterprises running on servers?

So a potentially really nice (for HTPC purposes at least) processor family might be entirely missed by LibreElec as the current family (Ryzen 3/5 2x00g) might be irrelevant by the time that it is in the LTS kernel that LibreElec will support?

@Milhouse  Something strange with the new Reusepython addition. When trying to open Fox Sports Go, it never loads the listings, it just continues to try and load until it times out. YouTube and PS Vue addons are the only other ones I've tried so far and they both work ok. Going back to any build before Resuepython was added and it works fine. I'll grab a debug log later today.

I don't disagree.

However there's a balance that needs to be struck between stability (LTS) for the majority of users and supporting the latest hardware (non-LTS) for a relative minority of users. Non-LTS kernels are also more likely to introduce new behaviour/bugs. It's difficult making the argument to take the more risky non-LTS option when LTS kernels are the obvious "safe" choice - the first time there is a problem with a non-LTS kernel in an official release it's just going to be a case of "I told you so" from those that didn't buy into the decision.

Hence, it's an on going discussion within the team.

My preference would be for non-LTS kernels - supporting the broadest and latest range of hardware - in official releases, but that decision needs to be agreed AND supported by the majority of the team, in particular all of those that support RPi/Generic as these projects would be the main consumers of the latest mainline/non-LTS kernels.

With the current plan to support only LTS kernels there's no real point putting in the effort to bring up the new non-LTS kernels - it gives a false impression of where LE9 will be when released, and is also a shed load of work/effort that isn't required.

I don't know if/when this policy will change, but yeah... if you have the latest hardware that needs a mainline/non-LTS kernel then LibreELEC is (unfortunately) no longer the OS for you, I'm afraid. Sad
