RE: Changes to the skinning engine for Kodi Leia - ronie - 2017-02-24

2017-02-24 drop support for using hyphen as none value

as of today, please do not use a hyphen '-' as an empty value.

tags like these are no longer supported:
<label>-</label>
<image>-</image>

you can simply use:
<label></label>
<image></image>

or if you prefer the alternate format:
<label/>
<image/>

RE: Changes to the skinning engine for Kodi Leia - ronie - 2017-03-17

2017-03-17 removed support for old static listitem format

likely not used (or even known) by anyone and therefor removed, the old way to define static listitems:
Code:
<item label="Cool Video" label2="" thumb="mythumb.png">PlayMedia(c:\videos\cool_video.avi)</item>

RE: Changes to the skinning engine for Kodi Leia - ronie - 2017-03-17

2017-03-17 onclick made optional for static listitems

it is no longer needed to define
Code:
<onclick>noop</onclick>
for static listitems that have no action.
you can simple remove the <onclick> tag
