Issue #54 — Fox

Friday 27 June 2014


This week the compute module development kits went on sale and we’ve even seen some in action in the hands of the likes of Alex Eames who put out a brilliant video pointing out the bits & pieces of the kit. Ryan is back to work on Pi Weekly now all of the robot kits have been sent out.

NOOBS 1.3.8 is now released with a new Raspbian image accompanied by OpenELEC, Arch Linux, RaspBMC and RISCOS images.

Imperial College first year undergraduates released a Star Fox clone for the Raspberry Pi in pure ARM assembly. Alex Bradbury called for Cambridge University to step up to the challenge.

Next weekend is the CamJam and all the workshops are sold out – Ben will be running one on Picamera and GPIO.
