FPP 2.7.2 Now Available
« on: June 18, 2019, 01:41:36 PM »

  • Update cape detection on Raspberry Pi to account for the Pi booting too fast so EEPROMs are not yet available.
  • Check i2c1 for OLED's on BBB in addition to normal 12c2
  • Allow script installer to check for max versions in addition to just min version (so obsolete scripts can not be shown)
  • Slightly faster boot on BBB (uboot bootdelay setting reduced) (requires re-imaging)
  • Faster Raspberry Pi OLED (increase i2c bus speed to 400khz from 100khz) (requires re-imaging)
Bug Fixes:
  • On WHITE OLED displays, vendor logos were being cut off by one pixel
  • BBB GPIO PWM output causing crash due to latest BBB kernel changes
  • Problem with Front/Back setting on LED Panel page mixing up panels and wiring
  • Prevent saving playlists with no name
  • Don't show options on LED Panel page that are not applicable to installed cape
Upgrade Instructions:
If you have a system running 2.7, you can go to the FPP about page (about.php) and click on the "Manual Update" button. It should only take a few minutes to upgrade.

If you have a system running 2.4-2.6, you can go to the FPP about page (about.php) and click on the "Manual Update" button. At that point, a big green "Upgrade" bar should appear. You will get all the improvements above except those marked with the "requires re-imaging" notes on the release note for all the versions is upgrading through. Note: there are a LOT of changes in this release. The "Upgrade" button will take several minutes. BeagleBones should take about 15 minutes. Newer Pi 3's are about 10 minutes. Single core Pi's may take over 30 minutes.

Does this detect the falcon pihat? Or just the beagle Bone based capes?
