v119

(01. June 2016)

Important Info:


-UserData Locations | As of this release, the default user data directory is now /mnt/dietpi_userdata, unless, you have set "dietpi_userdata_basedirectory=/Something/Else" in dietpi.txt. A symlink will be automatically generated to your USB drive, if installed. The new location will be active for any new software you install with DietPi-Software. All existing software will continue to use the previous locations. This allows us to simplifiy the online documentation and user experience: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -222503304

-Odroid C2 | Your system will install the latest kernel and boot.ini file. This is required for your system to be functional after the latest kernel update. As the /DietPi/boot.ini file is being overwritten, users may wish to make a note of their existing settings, prior to updating: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/366

New Device:

-DietPi for BananaPi M2+ image is now available. Built with ARM build tools: http://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=431

-DietPi for XenServer x64 image is now available. Many thanks to Xenformation for implimenting the image: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/309

-DietPi-Autostart | VNC servers (if installed) will now automatically start during boot, regardless of your autostart option. The service name is "vncserver": https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -220954537

-DietPi-Cam | Has been updated to RPi Web Cam interface 6.1.6. Now uses the internal motion engine and is fully functional: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/120

-DietPi-Services | Will now show you the name of each service that is applied, and if sucessful. Also added some funky colours, for visual eye candy (no honestly, it rocks)

-General | Odroid C2 image download updated to latest DietPi version.

Bug fixes:

-DietPi-Software | Resolved an issue where LetsEncrypt would fail to install. This was due to LetsEncrypt recently changing their name to Certbot: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/348

VNC4SERVER is now offered as a working alternative, whilst we wait for the Jessie repo package to be updated with a fix: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/255. Many thanks to Rob for his input and code on this.

-DietPi-Cloudshell | Resolved an issue where the Network usage scene would generate an error. This would occur if the network device was not ready, when we scraped netstat: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/355. Many thanks to Erik for finding this one!
