    Announce: piCorePlayer 3.5.0

    24 Mar 2018 - piCorePlayer 3.5.0

    The pCP team has released an update for piCorePlayer.

    Here are the major changes:

    • RPi 3B+ Support.
    • Kernel 4.14.26
    • RPi Firmware 14 Mar, 2018.
    • Moves to a 9.x piCore Base.
    • Moved from busybox modutils to kmod based modutils (For better module dependency and configuration).
    • Updated to Squeezelite 1.8.7-1052, includes native DSD support.
    • Cirrus Logic (Wolfson) Card support.
    • Hifiberry Amp2 Support.
    • Bluetooth Speaker Support.
    • Wireless AP Support (Tested with internal RPi wifi).
    • Shairport-Sync 3.1.7, with added separate output settings.
    • Audio Kernel (armv7 only) is now a RT kernel /w Full Preemption.


    Notes:
    Kernel's in the 4.14.y and newer have increased the default required version of SMB and NFS mounts. 3.0 is now required by default, if your NAS does not support this, you will need to explicitly set vers=2.0 (or maybe even vers=1.0) on the mount options. See the information on network mount section of the LMS page.

    New images or insitu update are availiable. The released versions can be downloaded here.

    Update: 30-Mar-2018
    • There is an issue with exFat support, if you need to run exFat, after installing. Goto the main menu in Beta mode, and press the Hotfix button.
    • Jivelite Forms issue fixed.
    • If using on a armv6 device, and using USB for audio there is a missing driver, after you install 3.5.0 and boot up.....open a ssh session and run pcp-update alsa-modules-KERNEL

    Insitu install on garage pCp/jivelite no problems.

    Insitu install on study pCp/jivlite/LMS > squeezelite and LMS not auto starting, network share not mounted. Adding the option vers=1.0 to the "Options" field and rebooting cured all 3 problems

    Thanks

    Access Point very cool.

    BTW, the AP is very cool. Makes it really easy to put a battery on one of these and slap it in the car.

    Once again, thank you very much.

    In situ updates to two pCp players on rPi 2B worked perfectly.

    Thank you pCP Team.

    Quick ones:
    i) can insitu be used if LMS is located on a NAS (or has LMS nothing to do with this)?
    ii) in case insitu will be used to which version of pCP will be upgraded (normal or audio optimized)?
