The previous release was a rather big one (at least under the hood), and came unfortunately with a few regressions.
This release fixes those, and adds some minor improvements.
Furthermore this release is the first release towards the unification of ‘regular’ and ‘XL’: we are moving towards just ‘RoPieee’, but with XL functionality. It does not make sense to maintain 2 versions while the one (XL) is just a superset of the other (‘regular’). It sounded like a not-so-bad idea when I began XL, because I didn’t know (exactly) where it was going.
But those days are gone and maintaining just one release makes my life easier and gives me more time to focus on the product itself.
It also means starting with this release you can only download the XL images, if you want to start from scratch. The OTA is still targeting both versions. And no worries: this unification will not require a reflash or anything like that. Over the coming releases everyone ends up with the same build.
So nothing changes and there is nothing you need to do proactively.
Back to the release then. Here’s the changelog:
FIX: shutdown behaves like reboot
FIX: do not encode web password multiple times
FIX: handle spaces in wireless networks properly while in AP mode
IMPROV: improve mDNS reliability (needed for the ‘devices’ tab)
IMPROV: continued webpage responsiveness improvements
IMPROV: better scanning results while in AP mode
IMPROV: be less restrictive with Roon zone names
IMPROV: provide image for the Orchard Audio PecanPi
The rollout is staggered and can take up to 24hrs, so please be patient.
@spockfish Let me tell you that with this update you just blowed my mind out. I found out about the update after seeing the “Update Available” red message flashing on the screen of my Office’s RoPieee Pi Display while listening to Pink Floyd - The Wall
Slight change of course, of my four Pi’s running Ropieee, two updated without a hitch and two stumbled and fell over. The two that fell over were using Wi-Fi, was this expected behaviour? I have since hooked them up to Ethernet and re-started them as new, all now working well again.
Mine’s doing the same. Update won’t take. I click on “Install Update”, it does a reboot and the button comes back and it still flashes on the display “update available” (is there any way to disable this, it’s distracting having a big red flashing update available thing flashing).
