Last week we released an update, for all Raspberry Pi 3b based Kano Computer Kits.
There are lots of little tweaks in the background that improve security, performance, and stability - and three BIG things out front, that we thought you’d like to know more about.
1. We fixed the Wi-Fi configuration
Hours after the release of the last update (Kano OS 4.2.0), we noticed a bug in the way that Wi-Fi was configured (on reboot, it was trying to connect twice, and cancelling itself out!), and issued a workaround.
The Wi-Fi configuration fix in Kano OS 4.2.1, replaces the work around, and offers a more stable Wi-Fi connection.
2. We updated the updater
Updates to Kano OS are pretty big, can take a while, and if you lose power, or internet connectivity, have a habit of going wobbly.
The updater for Kano OS 4.2.1 has been tweaked to improve stability - we still highly recommend you are connected to mains power, and have a solid internet connection before starting the update.
3. We added new Minecraft challenges
That’s right Minecraft fans - we added a whole new challenge pack to Hack Minecraft.
Galactic Crafting is our new space themed pack, and contains 6 new challenges, where you can make your own planets, rockets, stars, and UFOs!
