DietPi v6.0

28 January 2018

Important Information:

All DietPi images have been re-created. Existing installations (v159 or lower), can no longer be updated, or supported.
To continue support, users must install the latest v6.0 image.
- https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/1385
- All images are now Debian Stretch (excluding Odroid's)
- ARMbian based images are now mainline kernel 4.13+.
- Native PC (EFI): is now an ISO, with clonezilla bundled. Simplifies installation via Rufus write:
https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -336522021
- If you are happy with your existing installation of v159 (or lower), you are not required to install the v6.0 image, however,
we cannot continue to provide support for v159 (or lower) installations.
Minor notes:

The XMAS tree has now been taken down, stored away on github history for next year. Hope you all had a good one :D
