FPP 2.1 now available

New features:
  • enh - New "Expert Mode" for Multisync status page to view extended information about remotes
  • enh - BeagleBone WIFI driver selection moved to Network page
  • enh - BeagleBone - added WIFI driver for 8822bu (requires re-imaging)

  • bug - Could not trigger playlists via MQTT if prefix is set
  • bug - Much of issues related to adding Events to playlists and how they are stored in JSON

Upgrade instructions
If you have a system running 2.0, you can go to the FPP about page (about.php) and click on the "Manual Update" button. At that point, a big "Upgrade" bar should appear. You will get all the improvements above except those marked with the "requires re-imaging" note.
