Dear Armbian Community,

We have some exciting updates to share with you!

Firstly, we are thrilled to announce that we have successfully raised 5000 EUR for upgrading our CI servers. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you who participated in this fundraiser and for your continued support. Despite this success, our project still remains underfinanced, and we rely on your support to keep Armbian going.

We also have some technical updates to share. FriendlyElec has sent us a sample of the NanoPi R6C, another RK3588S board that’s worth checking out. It comes with an M.2 slot and one less NIC compared to the R6S variant, and Armbian is available for both. More info at

We have successfully ported the latest ZFS to Armbian Jammy and Armbian Bullseye. This means that users of these operating systems can now take advantage of the latest features and improvements in ZFS. Additionally, we have released our package dependency autotest framework at repository management. This framework will help ensure the reliability and stability of our packages, making it easier for you to use and enjoy Armbian.

As always, we appreciate your continued support and feedback. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to reach out to us.

Best regards,

The Armbian Team
