  • General We added an own APT repository at for own software and kernel/firmware builds. This simplifies updates for software packages like Squeezelite, vaultwarden and Amiberry, and allows us to provide own up-to-date kernel and bootloader packages, applied via regular apt upgrade. A goal is also to become independent of some 3rd party repositories, which are regularly affected by network errors or provide package updates too infrequently.
  • DietPi-Tools | DietPi-Config Removed the 3.5mm audio option on Raspberry Pi 5, as it does not have a 3.5mm jack. Additionally, the KMS graphics driver is enabled OOTB when HDMI audio is selected, as the snd_bcm2835 driver does not work on Raspberry Pi 5. Many thanks to @denguido for making us aware of this:
  • DietPi-Software | Mosquitto The official APT repository added support for 64-bit ARM on Bookworm, which is now used for our installation.
  • DietPi-Software | UnRAR Debian added unrar packages for RISC-V, which are now used for our installation.
