  • Quartz64 Enabled (software) RAID and Logical Volume Manager (LVM) support. Many thanks to @dano6 for implementing this: MichaIng/DietPi!6370
  • DietPi-Software | youtube-dl Since the development of the original youtube-dl project stalled for some years, we migrated to the well known actively developed fork yt-dlp: yt-dlp/yt-dlp
    If you installed youtube-dl before, you can migrate via reinstall: dietpi-software reinstall 195. For backwards compatibility, the youtube-dl command will stay valid as a symlink to yt-dlp, but there are some differences you should be aware about when doing the migration on your system: yt-dlp/yt-dlp#differences-in-default-behavior. Many thanks to @rgabbo for suggestion and @pulpe for implementing this change: MichaIng/DietPi?5670, MichaIng/DietPi!6380
  • DietPi-Software | Pi-hole With recent release, Pi-hole supports RISC-V and has been hence enabled for this architecture as well in DietPi. Many thanks to the Pi-hole team for making this possible to quickly!
