Details are still thin but there have been rumors of new Roku players coming out later this year. Now a Roku Beta tester has posted on Reddit confirming that a Roku OS 9.0 is rolling out. Currently, Roku OS is at 8.1 so a jump to a Roku OS 9.0 suggest this will be a major update as they are skipping their typical .5 update.
Roku has also announced they plan to end some support for very old Roku SDKs that date back to the early days of the Roku OS later this year. This suggests that the new Roku OS 9.0 will be more than a few minor new features and bug fixes.
Exactly what is new is still unknown but from what beta testers have posted it looks like the user interface remains mostly the same. (At least at this point in the beta testing.)
