As part of our plans to upgrade our infrastructure over the coming months, downloads and updates via APT should now be available via both IPv4 and IPv6 from today. While we don’t anticipate any issues, it would be good to get some feedback from those with an IPv6 enabled stack to verify that things are working as expected and there has not been any disruption.
There should be plenty of bandwidth to handle updates and downloads, but presently this was only served over IPv4. We don’t really ship an IPv6 enabled stack on OSMC presently, but this will change in the future. We are seeing some IPv6 usage on Discourse and the website however.
After this, we’ll soon look at deploying HTTPS for APT and the Download domains as well.
