Upgrade from 9.01 to 9.02 without problems on rpi3B.
Only rating 9 because I need more tests.

Works perfectly on Pi 3B+. Couldn't ask for more (ore less in the case of Libreelec - just enough OS for Kodi). I experience NO lag. I love that it comes with
1) A WiFi hotspot!
2) SSH - makes it easy to upload files
3) Bluetooth control
4) WiFi control

Runs great on two NUC pc (one for basement "Cinema" and one for the living room).

This latest version (9.0) has smooth out any remaining problems I previously had (ie: Chromium browser crash... now replaced with Google Chrome).

Just a small glitch : had to configure custom audio out for Chrome in order to have audio from HDMI. For that, I would have given 9.9 instead of 10! :P
