Changes / Improvements / Optimizations:

General | Odroid XU3/4 images updated: Includes kernel support for EMMC 5.1 (thanks Meveric):

General | DietPi RPi kernel: Updated to 4.9.62.

General | DietPi RPi kernel: Will no longer re-install, if the current version is already at latest.

General | Added fahrenheit readouts for cpu_info and dietpi-config. For those “over the pond” :smiley: :

General | Sparky SBC: Kernel update to add support for USB 1.1 DACs, thanks @sudeep. This must be enabled manually,
if using a USB 1.1 DAC, as this breaks Allo WiFi dongle. Edit “/DietPi/uEnv.txt” and change the value “aotg.aotg1_speed=1”
(from “0”), then reboot.

General | We now define a default LD_LIBRARY_PATH for all systems, exported from /etc/bash.bashrc:

DietPi-Services | Run “dietpi-services help” to see a full list of updated commands: Added support for “enable” and “disable”.
“disable” will stop and disable the service and prevent it from running, “enable” will enable and start the service. EG: “dietpi-services
disable cron”, will prevent Cron from starting. Added support for start/stop/restart a single service (eg: dietpi-services stop apache2).
This is basically a symlink to systemD: DietPi-Services | Feature Req | Make DietPi-Services Stop accept service name arguments · Issue #1114 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub

DietPi-Config | WiFi: Now uses the wpa_supplicant.conf method to setup WiFi connections. WEP is no longer supported by DietPi in
this mode. WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and OPEN hosts supported: DietPi-Config | Upgrade WiFi to use wpa_supplicant.conf · Issue #1262 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub

DietPi-Backup | “Full Backup” Mode is now the default for fresh DietPi installations. This is mainly due to MySQL data now being
in the DietPi userdata directory.

DietPi-Config | Tools > Benchmarks: Added ability to benchmark CPU performance based on bash + integer:

DietPi-Config | Time sync modes: NTP is now uninstalled when SystemD timedatectl is enabled. Reinstalled on demand.
Timedatectl pool servers are now also set: Selecting 'Daemon + Drift' as ntp method does not set date · Issue #1208 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub

DietPi-Software | First run setup, now logged to /etc/dietpi/logs/dietpi-firstrun-setup.log.

“Native” output freq/bit is set: DietPi-Software | MPD 0.20.x · Issue #1236 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub
