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