we’ve been working a lot this summer to fix all open issues, and we’re really close to have a final, bug free Volumio 2.0.
Before releasing to everybody, it will be useful to do a pre-test, to spot the last bugs. You’ll also find new and amazing features (like grid view and library browsing…).
Please try it and report here your findings, only bugs please.
How to get the last version:
USING THE TEST UPDATER
go to volumioip/dev
You’ll see a section called TEST MODE. Click on TRUE. From now on your volumio device will be able to receive test updates. If you want to revert this, click to false. Remember that test updates might brick your system.
Now, if you’ll go to system -> check updates, you’ll see a new update available. Update as usual.
FLASHING THE IMAGES
EDIT: Updated image with last fixes
PLEASE NOTE: If you want to use spotify, use this .zip file instead of the official one:
We expect to release next week, thanks for your help!
OPINION AND SUGGESTION NEEDED:
I think that Volumio hotspot should be protected by default. The obvious password should be of course volumio, but we need a password with at least 8 characters (volumio is 7). So:
- Do you guys agree that we should secure the hotspot by default, or should we left it open (the UI has an easy way to secure it)
- What would be the most easy password? Something like volumionetwork , audiophile, vivavolumio etc
let me know
