LibreELEC (Milhouse): devel-20171119210325-#1119-g26c5fad [Build #1119]

# Kodi version
(18.0-ALPHA1 Git:67fd70f). Platform: Linux x86 64-bit

Based on tip of master (26c5fad, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (67fd70f, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. embed splash into render system
  2. Add Kodi support for Samba "client min protocol" (allowing SMB1 to be completely disabled), and legacy security
    Quote:The default "Minimum protocol version" is "None" (which means that nothing is configured in /storage/.kodi/smb.conf, causing Samba to default to NT1) and enables the Samba client (ie. Kodi) to negotiate an SMB1 (NT1) connection before negotiating a higher SMB2 protocol version. Negotiating SMB1 first leaves the client vulnerable to a MITM attack (see: here).

    To completely disable SMB1, go to Kodi > Settings > Services > SMB client, and set "Minimum protocol version" to SMB2 (which in LibreELEC will mean SMB2_10 is used as the minimum protocol that can be negotiated). This will ensure the client only negotiates SMB2_10 or better connections.

    The "Use legacy security" option is enabled when "Maximum protocol version" is set to SMB1, and disables the NTLMv2 and spnego security features, weakening security but ensuring a working connection with outdated Samba servers that are still, sadly, being shipped in current devices (ie. ASUS routers). Needless to say don't enable this option unless you need it.
