I have been quietly working on the installer and image. However, there have been 2 OS updates since I started. So I am refreshing all of my images with Raspbian Stretch. I will be making it available soon. Also, if anyone has a class 10, 4GB MicroSD they want to donate. I am trying to make the image as small as possible. Please contact me directly for details.
The new Image will be based on Raspbian Lite as mentioned above, and will have the basic dependencies met. It will also have newer versions of all the software pre-compiled to save you the hours of time it can take.
I am working on software to auto-configure most audio devices. This is something I hope to include soon. Please keep an eye out for the new links.
Thank you to TJUMP7 for the 4gb Card! Small Image coming soon! Keep an eye out for that and the installer….
First, I would like to say thank you to the community members for helping out. I have gotten a lot of input on the new image. This has also given me better feel for what the community wanted in an image. Which leads me to the next bit of news.
Some of you are undoubtedly wondering why I have not released my Jasper v1.6 image as of yet. Well, I can assure you there are very good reasons.
Firstly, I have had some severe family/health issues come up as of late which take priority. I am also in the middle of moving a family of 5. Combine that with the other reasons below, and I feel that most will feel the wait to be worth it.
This leads me to the next bit of news, however shocking it may be.
There will be no version 1.6 image.
There will be no image at all…
Instead, there will be a full installer.
This is one of the reasons for the delay.
The installer will work with a full GUI, and on the desktop.
Full ubuntu Install.
Fresh RPI install with GUI.
The installer will be iterated on by feature going forward.
We can add community approved features one at a time.
