Kotori 0.22.6 released

Dear community,

after installation issues with Kotori on ARM [1,2] reported by @georges.gagliano (thanks!), we finally revamped our build system [3] and released fresh packages.


  • New .deb packages suitable for Debian “stretch” 9.x.
  • The buildbot infrastructure is now based on Docker.
  • This yields packages for both "amd64" and "armhf" architectures.
  • Version bumps on many Python packages pulled in by Kotori.
  • Kotori is becoming available from the Python Package Index, see kotori · PyPI.


As we are confident the current release packages based on these changes work reasonably well by testing them on our own machines, we are encouraging others to try them on their premises. After registering with the package repository outlined at Setup on Debian — Kotori 0.22.7 documentation, we recommend to install/upgrade Kotori using

apt install --install-recommends --install-suggests kotori

Installation on ARM machines

As Kotori will sometimes run on ARM-based SBC machines, we concluded it would be suitable to produce a more lightweight variant (see also [2] for more background information about that). So, the Debian package for installing Kotori on ARM is now called "kotori-standard" (28 MB) and the correct command to install/upgrade on RaspberryPi, Beaglebone and similar systems would be

apt install --install-recommends --install-suggests kotori-standard

Please let us know about any issues you might encounter with the installation and operation.

With kind regards,
