Update 0.9 released. Includes GPS option.

We just released the 9th software update for Raspberry Shake. This update fixes a few minor bugs that were reported on the Google Group and adds some new functionality.

As before, this and all future updates are automatic and do not require you to do anything. Within a week’s time, your Raspberry Shake will automagically update.

ver.9 includes:

  • Added support for GPS timing solution
  • Swarm config file is regenerated if IP address changes between reboots
  • More accurate assessment of NTP to eliminate possibility of false positives
  • RS now better handles out-of-order restart of components (router, IP address assignment, etc.)
  • Loads of under-the-hood stuff to improve overall experience
  • For full details and links to updated documentation, please see the ChangeLog
  • More updates with new features to come soon!

See here for the new SD card image (will be available on Monday).
