Dear Armbian Community,

Welcome to the latest edition of our Newsletter! We have some exciting updates and important information to share with you. Let’s dive right in!

Release Update:

We are constantly pushing the boundaries to deliver the best experience for our users. While we strive to test everything thoroughly, bugs always slips through. However, we want to assure you that each release comes with a lot of fixes. We are currently focused on addressing the troubles with the upcoming release. Although a few images may not boot, we are overall satisfied with the progress. We have fixed images that didn’t boot and we decided to hold back the repository update for now. Rest assured, our dedicated team is working tirelessly to identify and resolve any critical bugs within the next two weeks. Once we have tackled these issues, we will ship out the update to users of older images.

Build Infrastructure Update:

Earlier this year, we launched a fundraising campaign with the aim of improving our build infrastructure. We are delighted to share that we have partnered with Ampere Computing, who have generously provided us with a powerful, dual 80-core aarch64 beast equipped with a terabyte of memory. This upgrade will significantly enhance our capabilities. However, please note that the lead time for this new infrastructure is approximately three months. In the meantime, we have received additional build capacity from Oregon State University. We are grateful for their support, which will help us use our current infrastructure until the new setup is ready. Our infrastructure team will be meeting this Saturday to discuss for a smooth transition.

Call for Community Support:

Armbian is a community-driven project, and we invite everyone to join us in our mission. Open-source software is built by thousands of individuals, and together, we can overcome any challenge. We encourage you to contribute by helping us identify and address issues. If you encounter a bug, kindly report it so that we can close it and open a new task. The release of Armbian 23.08 is approaching, so let’s work together to make it a success!
