Updating the Lighting preview


#1

I am running the Lighting preview and want to know if I should download and burn the latest version or has picroft updated it’s self?

The current https://mycroft.ai/to/picroft-stable is good for a Pi3 or Pi3B+ using one of the supported USB mics. The AIY kit still has a few hitches. Changes have been checked in to the https://github.com/mycroftai/enclosure-picroft repo, but there isn’t a new image yet.

So if you aren’t using AIY, pull down the latest and you will be good to go. Once you are up and going, it will auto-update. There will be new images that will tweak the Picroft scripts, but those will download themselves as we release them.

Of course, when working with a brand new Pi it makes sense to download the latest image, as it hasn’t had opportunity to update itself! I log the release of all new images at https://github.com/MycroftAI/enclosure-picroft/#picroft---2018-09-11-stretch-lightning-release. The short link (https://mycroft.ai/to/picroft-stable) stays the same, but you can always see the target image name before re-downloading.

I’m somehow amused by the fact that the URL https://mycroft.ai/to/picroft-stable is no longer stable. For some definition of “stable” I guess.

Is there something specific we can assist with?
