OctoPi Release Candidate 0.15rc1 needs testers!


#1

Guy Sheffer just published a release candidate for the next release of the OctoPi image, version 0.15.

Apart from adding support for the Pi 3+ and of course shipping with the current stable OctoPrint version 1.3.8, 0.15 also contains the following changes:

  • Raspberrypi 3B+ support
  • octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt network settings now default
  • linux kernel 4.14 from new base image 2018-04-18-octopi-stretch-lite
  • debian stretch from new base image
  • Bug fixes

Developer Notes:

We have moved to build with CustomPiOS, which means that OctoPi has joined a larger build system which supports lots of modules and cool ways to configure and maintain debian-based IOT distos.

If you’ve been waiting for a new OctoPi release, this is your chance to give the candidate a test drive and report any findings back so we can make sure the release is solid!

You can find the download links in the ticket.

I installed Octopi last on 5/1/18 onto a B+ Pi. Have it up and operating. Have seen no discrepencies with run activity. Installation was not problematic and environment is stable.
