Enhancements

  • Images New DietPi images won’t contain the gnupg package anymore, but gpg only, since other features of the suite are not required for our scripts anymore. E.g. dirmngr for interacting with key servers, and gpg-agent for key passphrase inputs are hence missing. gpg however prints very clear error messages about what is missing. Let us know whether you find one of those GnuPG features too essential to not be pre-installed.
  • Radxa ZERO 3 Onboard WiFi does now work OOTB on early ZERO 3W revisions with AP6212 WiFi chip.
  • Quartz64/Star64/VisionFive 2 | dm-crypt/LUCS support has been added to the kernel for those two SBCs. Many thanks to @gxsw for reporting this missing feature: MichaIng/DietPi#7091
  • DietPi-Software | Jellyfin Since a while FFmpeg 6 is available for Jellyfin, but on old installs with the old FFmpeg 5 package, it is not upgraded automatically by APT. This DietPi update applies the FFmpeg upgrade to all affected systems. Many thanks to @gioxx and @WolfganP for reporting this issue: MichaIng/DietPi#7080
  • DietPi-Software | MediaWiki Uploaded images are now preserved on reinstalls.
