Open Beta v7.0 | Please help testing and hardening the upcoming release

All info can be found on GitHub:

Many thanks for considering to help testing this release :slight_smile:!

today the update DietPi from v6.34.3 (beta) to v6.35.-1 on my RaspberryPi Zero was successful.

Where can I download the Open Beta v7.0 or how can I install the beta?

Many greetings.


v6.35.-1 should be 7.0 beta

Yes, the change in the updater required v6.35 as intermediate step but actually your DietPi should report v7.0 now.

THX, and please this for DietPi 64bit on RasPi4:

  • MOTD : Please help testing DietPi beta v7.0.0:

Thank you and many friendly greetings.


Beta is available for all device in general. Doesn’t matter what image you are running on.

Thank you very much. I now found
G_CONFIG_INJECT β€˜DEV_GITBRANCH=’ β€˜DEV_GITBRANCH=beta’ /boot/dietpi.txt
and I executed it, then reboot. Then I see
Debian GNU/Linux comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, to the extent
permitted by applicable law.
DietPi v7.0.0 (beta) : 19:12 - Wed 24.02.2021
