________________________________________________________


We are releasing RPi Stretch image under Beta:
We are looking for users to assist us with tracking possible bugs/issues with the Stretch distro. Please report any issues in this thread.

Stretch benefits from more recent programs, such as:
  • PHP 7.0
  • More up to date versions of software (eg: desktops)
  • Generally speaking, a more updated and recent OS, compared to Jessie.
Why now?
To prep DietPi and its sourecode for Stretch's arrival, and, to offer our users more up to date software installations.

Please see here for further info and DL link:

With apt-get upgrade come as well a new kernel, new Firmware, new RPi bootloader and overlays update with some new overlays.

Thanks K-Plan, really appreciate the in-depth testing!

Overlay update! Always a good way to see what new HATs (mostly soundcards) are coming to market :D. I'll take a look at the new .dtb.
