Soon **Version 4.0.0** - Currently at RC1 - Public Beta coming soon. OS changed to Raspbian Stretch (from Jesse). Updating the base OS brings better support for a few things, and some minor challenges too, but it should look / feel and work just the same way it always did. Image auto expand - the first time you boot a fresh image, it will auto expand the file system, so that you dont have to, it all happens pretty quickly, so much so that you might not even notice. NTP Support Improved NTP support has been improved, Pi-Star should do a much improved job of jumping to the correct time after boot up, and staying on time correctly. Current DStarRepeater / ircDDBGateway software, keeping Pi-Star close to the bleeding edge for these platforms, including terminal support for Icom radios that support it. Unified image for all models of Raspberry Pi Foundation hardware, finally bringing back the single image for all devices again, and taking the Raspberry Pi 3B+ out of beta, also adding in support for the Raspberry Pi 3A+ too. Improved screen when booting up, its now more obvious that you should not be using the console to interact with the Pi. I hope that doing that will help first time users see what to do. Additional hardening to nginx to stop it being broken by OS updates.

k6jm: 5/2 - Tuned into XRF002A at 7pm PDT just to see if anyone was there. Had a few very nice QSOs. Everyone had heard the net is no more, but it was fun to talk. XRF002A is still a great reflector.
