The official Raspberry Pi Foundation blog has this week announced that a new version of the Raspbian operating system image has been released for the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC, which brings with it a number of new features, tweaks and enhancements for Pi users to enjoy.
Features of the latest Raspbian operating system include Bluetooth audio, SD card copier, pigpio, Geany, new versions of applications, New kernel, Tweaks and more.
Unfortunately there are no new hardware announcements to accompany the release of the latest Raspbian image, which is a free operating system that is based on Linux Debian and has been specifically optimised for use with the Raspberry Pi hardware.
No exciting new hardware announcement to tie it to this time, but we’ve just released a new version of our Raspbian image with some (hopefully) useful features. Read on for all the details of what has changed…
Although RaspbianOS is not just an operating system and comes equipped with plenty of utilities including 35,000 packages as well as pre-compiled software bundled for easy installation on your Raspberry Pi system. When the Pi 3 launched back in February, we’d not had time to do much in terms of getting access to the new onboard Bluetooth hardware. There was a working software stack, but the UI was non-existent.

** Raspbian is not affiliated with the Raspberry Pi Foundation. RaspbianOS was created by a small, dedicated team of developers that are fans of the Raspberry Pi hardware, the educational goals of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and, of course, the Debian Project.
