  • The minimum Debian version supported by our scripts has been raised to Bullseye.
    Buster systems will be migrated to a dedicated branch automatically.
    We highly recommend affected systems to either flash a new image or upgrade to Debian Bullseye, following our DietPi blog post DietPi – How to upgrade to “Bullseye”. Once the upgrade has been done, the update to DietPi v9.0 will be offered on next update check or when running dietpi-update.
  • The minimum DietPi version to support direct updates to DietPi v9.0 from has been raised to v7.0. Older systems will go through a two-stage process, being upgraded to DietPi v8.25 with a separate branch, and afterwards further to DietPi v9.0 via master branch if the Debian version requirement is met as well.
