New software


  • NanoPi R series Updated udev rules for the Ethernet LEDs to not lid the LEDs of disabled Ethernet devices. If an Ethernet device has been detected by the kernel/udev already and an LED is configured to light on link (connected cable), it lights until the interface is set up and no link is detected. So for disabled interfaces, some LEDs remained lit. The udev rules have now been changed to quickly set up and down the interfaces for the LEDs to remain off until an interface has been successfully configured.
  • NanoPi R6S Since our image runs fine on NanoPi R6C as well, the device name in DietPi is now shown as “NanoPi R6S/R6C” to indicate this fact.
  • ROCK Pi 4 We followed Radxa and renamed the device to “ROCK 4”, i.e. removed the “Pi” from its name.
  • DietPi-Banner Added a new option to show the Let’s Encrypt certificate status (expiry date), when installed via dietpi-letsencrypt or Certbot. Many thanks to @gary2002 for implementing this option: MichaIng/DietPi!6314
  • DietPi-Tools | DietPi-LetsEncrypt HTTP/2 is now enabled OOTB on Nginx when enabling HTTPS via dietpi-letsencrypt. Many thanks to @Isti6github for bringing up this topic:
  • DietPi-Software | MinIO On fresh installs, the S3 API port will be 9004 from now on, to resolve a port conflict with Logitech Media Server. Furthermore the web access port (aka console port) will be set to 9001, as otherwise it will be randomly applied from a high port range, making reverse proxy and container setups impossible. Many thanks to @din14970 for reporting this issue:
  • DietPi-Software | Snapcast The server and client install options have been enabled on ARMv8 and RISC-V, using the older but functional packages from the Debian repository.

Bug fixes

As always, many smaller code performance and stability improvements, visual and spelling fixes have been done, too much to list all of them here. Check out all code changes of this release on GitHub: MichaIng/DietPi!6361
