I am a heavy user of the Kodi UPNP server, which is working very well for me. There are three features / bugs I'd like to share. Thanks in advance for your help looking into this:

1) Album year - the meta data for album year is not being made available by Kodi over UPNP. The respective field should be "dc:date". Would be great if this can be added.

2) Disc number - understand that this is not part of the formal UPNP tags, but would be great to have a custom tag in Kodi that makes the disc number available via UPNP.

3) Album art - there appears to be a bug in Kodi for cases, when I have a duplicate music album (i.e., songs with same song, artist and album name). The duplicate album is made available over UPNP, but for these cases no albumart is available. It can be reproduced in VLC for IOS, but same issue when trying other UPNP clients.

Sounds like small sensible improvements.
