v17 -  TheTVDB v2.0
#1
With the upcoming release of v2.0 of TheTVDB website, a lot of new features are being implemented. Some of these improvements include:
- Flexible Seasons
- New handling of actors
- New artwork types

Here is their blog http://platypus.thetvdb.com/blog/something_new

The website is also undergoing a major facelift. This is the non-live version... http://platypus.thetvdb.com/

What does this mean for Kodi? Will Kodi see these improvements and extras flow through? Especially for flexible seasons and the new artwork?

Looks like it's going to have an effect on reading nfo files also. Old nfo files won't work eventually. And a nfo file created using the new api URL causes kodi to not scan in the show.

Ok, that is interesting to know.

I assume that authors of such wonderful software as TMM and others, will update their software, and it will be a simple matter for the end user to simply upgrade nfo files individually or maybe batch update.

I'll make it more explicit. Starting October 1st, the tvdb api v1 will be taken offline.
This will mean, all api v1 routes, will not be available anymore.

This will have an impact on the scraping of thetvdb info in Kodi, as the tvdb metadata scraper, depends on the <episodeguide> tag, to have an a url to the episode metadata.
Meaning from October 1st, we will like start missing episode summaries, screenshots, etc.

Here an example:
Code:
<episodeguide>
    <url>https://api.thetvdb.com73141/all/en.zip</url>
  </episodeguide>

I suggest this url is replaced, with a standard xm format, which other nfo providers can use.
I've tried looking if this is already being worked on, but couldn't find any references.
