DietPi-Software |
You can now uninstall software, if free space is below the 500MB threshold. Software installations are still prevented:

DietPi-Software | Stretch: Updated additional software (eg: Plex/Mosquitto etc) repos to use stretch repos, where available.

DietPi-software |
BitTorrent (ALL): Write cache memory size is now set to 1/10th of total RAM. Previously 1/8th.
This is to prevent excess RAM usage in multiple software combo installations. This applies to new installations only:

DietPi-Software | Stretch, OpenSSH Server: Resolved an issue where uninstalling openSSH server would fail
due to apt package changes with openssh-blacklist*.

General |

based sofware installs (and possibly others): https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/1027
