New images

  • NanoPi R5S/R5C Our NanoPi R5S image has been verified to work fine on NanoPi R5C as well, and the hardware model has been hence internally renamed to indicate this.


  • General Reduced log level for kernel logs to console to omit warnings. This matches to what the “quiet” kernel command-line parameter results in and helps to prevent messy display with DietPi-CloudShell, Pi-hole PADD and similar. Many thanks to @Falconcrest for reporting a related issue:
  • DietPi-Software | myMPD On fresh installs, plain HTTP is now disabled completely but myMPD is accessible via HTTPS on port 1333 only. The myMPD CA for the default self-signed certificate is added to the systems trusted store to allow MPD fetching web radio playlists from myMPD.
  • DietPi-Software | vaultwarden Updated to latest version 1.27.0 with web vault v2023.1.0. The update can be applied via reinstall: dietpi-software reinstall 183
  • DietPi-Software | NoMachine Updated to latest version 8.2.3. The update can be applied via reinstall: dietpi-software reinstall 30
  • DietPi-Software | Transmission The cache-size-mb setting is not set to anymore on fresh installs. It was set to 10% of RAM size, which is often too much for a pure download cache. It now defaults to 4 MiB instead. If you experience inconsistent download speeds on an existing install, you may edit or remove the setting in /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json. Many thanks to @bbsixzz for bringing up this topic: MichaIng/DietPi#5069
  • DietPi-Software | UrBackup The backup path can now be pre-configured with a new SOFTWARE_URBACKUP_BACKUPPATH setting in dietpi.txt.
  • DietPi-Software | Amiberry Updated to version 5.5.1, including LibSDL2 v2.26.2. The update can be applied via reinstall: dietpi-software reinstall 108
