His first opportunity to work on it again not release it, and since then he's posted this update -

Skin design is about 80% complete. The OSD is getting a redesign, there are a couple of bespoke screens to go in, and then a hefty but quite straightforward tutorial component, but in terms of a release candidate that's about it.

This does not mean the skin itself is 80%.

Once those last few bits are done, the whole thing is being rebuilt from the ground up with better documented and standardised code. You can imagine the amount of detritus that's built up over on-off years of doing this.

The animations and colour-changing stuff are much snappier and more polished than they were for the last video, and there are handy new features that make using the thing less painful.

When the skin is rebuilt, there'll be a further polish and optimisation pass done to ensure you can't break anything or hitch the animations when just tooling about with a remote/controller. There'll be a brief, private testing phase and then release.

Expect plenty of activity post-release. Should be fun. Might do another video later.

You can expect a release for Christmas this year. Remember, the whole skin has to be rebuilt once the functionality is complete, which given the state of it now will take a good while.

On a separate note, I've started testing on an Nvidia Shield TV 2017. GUI performance at 4K with 100% 4K posters and artwork is perfect. Will post some updated pics tonight.

When I get time I'll do a blog explaining the full rationale behind things like the Kids view. The important thing is that this view is specific to kids shows and is not used for mature. Kids and grown-ups have very different tastes when it comes to browsing, and that's hopefully reflected here. There's a lot of specificity when it comes to views and content types in this new Aeon, so you don't need excessive labels telling you where you are all the time - you just know. The plan is to have a one-touch mode of 'zooming out' this fullscreen view to help navigate larger libraries, but I'm not worried about that just yet.

As you can see, the view for mature TV is pretty much unchanged, but there's still a basic level of consistency when browsing TV shows in general.

Nice work Duncan

Updated screenshots display artwork beautifully.  You've even tastefully included clearlogos.

Looking forward to hearing more about the companion app.

Kids mode is a great addition. I can see this skin going full time kids mode on multiple tvs (children's bedrooms)
