Did as suggested - no luck. Running dietpi-config and connecting wifi it looks as if it is connected. Reboot, it isn't. Did this several times same result.

If we install this, will we able to upgrade to beta and then stable version finally?

or we should stick to stable version and then upgrade when this hits stable?

That is the idea, but there is no guarantee.
We'll patch what we can, but there may be a need to replace the alpha image and reinstall. We won't know this until/if it happens.

Ideally, stick with stable if you need a stable environment. If you want bleeding edge and are able to help us find bugs (at the risk of somethings not working), use the alpha Stretch image.

Report (just to help), Issues:
1. NTPD - Problem (saw that this was solved, but then please upload an updated stretch-image->so its unusable for "normal user"->"Dietpi not regularily synchronized->DietPi will now exit->had 2 times to "echo ..ntpd...")
(after auto-update to 1.51->same ntpd-problem..)

2.CONFIRMING: KODI + Chromium not possible to install..

no further issues...!!

Overall, a better user experience, (heavy) more ram-usage (about 100MB more->320MB)..
feels better !!

Hi,

I'll update the Stretch image next chance I get: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -307791285

Aware of Kodi. Although Chromium was fully functional last time I tried it. I'll check it again during image update.

Is it still "alpha"? Or beta maybe rc?
Is there a date for the final?
