There are some great features packed into Adafruit’s latest update to Occidentalis, their custom Raspberry Pi distro:

  • Truncated image – only 2.6G now to fit on any 4G card
  • raspi-config notice retained on boot
  • Removed persistant wlan0 entry
  • Password-change reminder on login
  • Added RTC and lm-sensors kernel module
  • Included kernel modules for: DS1307, AD626 I2C digipots, HMC6352, BMP085, ADS1015
  • New! Adafruit’s PWM/Servo kernel module for easy PWM/Servo control on GPIO#18

I’ve been spending a lot more time experimenting with my Raspberry Pi lately, so I’m eager to try this update out.
