New Device:

DietPi for NanoPi-NEO is here. Built with ARMbian build tools. Grab the image http://dietpi.com/download

Changes / Improvements / Optimizations:

-DietPi-Banner |
Relaxed the buffer clearing to only clear screen, when the full banner is displayed.

-DietPi-Software | Major (if somewhat long overdue) coding overhaul to improve and optimize DietPi-Software further: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/453

-DietPi-Software | Plex Media Server: Is now available for ARM64 devices (Pine / Odroid C2) and will install the 32bit binaries. Many thanks to LukasBombach for the ARM64 installation code: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/457

-DietPi-Uninstall | Removed. Software can now be uninstalled from DietPi-Software.

-DietPi-Automation | Continuation from v126, this has been revisited and further simplified. Please see here for updated usage: http://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=273#p1140

-General | Linux-Headers will be removed on new installations. They are not required, unless native kernel compile. This will save 40MB+ space on rootFS.

-General | Wheezy code has been removed. If you still want to use Wheezy, please see: http://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=432

-General |
All DietPi SBC images have been updated to v127. The latest kernel/firmware updates have also been applied.

Bug fixes:

-DietPi-Software | VNCserver: Has changed to screen 1 by default. This allows vncserver to run if X:0 is already in use (eg: by a desktop or Kodi). Example connection from client: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -237655998

-DietPi-Automation |
Custom locale and timezone set in dietpi.txt are now being correctly applied: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issues/174
