pCP Team 23 December 2020 pCP 7.0.0
Hi, the pCP Team is nearing the completion of the release of a new piCorePlayer 3.20. Because of the many significant kernel changes, improvements and bug fixes we decided to offer a public beta. Anyone is free to try the beta, but if you find a problem please post diagnostic data. Both version are ready for testing. Notes # piCorePlayer3.20beta5 which is a normal version like all previous pCP releases. The kernel and modules are mostly vanilla versions from the official Raspberry Pi Linux source with only a couple of tweaks.
pCP 3.11 is a small bug fix version with the following improvements. Changes # Added Workgroup field to Samba Setup. Added Additional gateway and DNS options to Static IP setup for wired Ethernet. Updated HDMI configuration to work with Shairport-sync. Added [HotFix] button to the [Main Page] to make the next hotfix easier. (See below) For current users, we are trying a different way of deploying small little hotfixes.
