I will be sending out the first ever OTA update at ~1800 UTC on 2nd Feb.
Features to watch out for:
“guest” login is finally back! guest cannot configure Tuner or Network, cannot view Network config, but can view Tuner status. Cannot upload/delete files, create directories, etc. guest cannot login over ssh or ftp. guest/guest is also default filled in on the login form, thus allowing easy login.
Much improved mobile experience:
use firefox on mobile and set it to “request desktop site” mode for best results.
even better experience if you do full screen. Scrolling in articles etc works,
but scrolling inside apps (file manager, for example) is still a work in progress.
Its still problematic on very small screens (4inch or smaller), but 5inch and larger work decently well.
Safari doesn’t work very well, nor does the Android stock browser. But Firefox on both iOS and Android works quite nicely.
USB external storage works differently: USB stick is no longer used as live storage. When you plugin a USB stick it is made available in the home directory as “external”.
ntfs is no longer supported: use one of fat32, ext2, ext3, ext4
every hour, before clean, all files from downloads are synced to the usb stick.
support for user scripts (advanced, more details later)
News app auto update time is now 30 minutes (was 5 minutes), width fixes, sorting fixes.
rsync added for easy sync to offline storage over the network
network config bugfixes
lots of other bugfixes
(edit) forgot this one: logs are now retained across boots.
