Blind Testing is feature complete! And here's the first Beta!

Yes, I did cheat by pushing the the Web Remote into the next major release, but in my defence a lot of work has already went into this release (Check out the feature list) Big Grin .

Compared to the current release (Golden Ears), the Blind Testing firmware is now both smaller in size and quicker to execute. More importantly, it sounds better!

I will put up a blog explaining the technical new features on release day. I have to finish the documentation first, and start porting Snakeoil OS to the ARMv7 architecture (e.g. RPi 3B). But that's just me. For you guys - please enjoy this beta.

Please report any bugs here. As you can see from the previous paragraph, I still have a lot on my plate so I cannot devote as much time as I would like on testing this. The more bugs you guys can find and identify, the better it will be for everybody.

The Snakeoil Squad Needs Your Help
Firstly, it's still the usual, promote Snakeoil as much as you can. Invite your friends over to your house and let them listen to music played off the Snakeoil OS computer. Help them out by installing Snakeoil OS on their media servers. Basically let as many people know about Snakeoil as you can. Show them the official Snakeoil website. If you have Facebook, like and follow the Snakeoil Snakeoil FB page. Comment, like and share the posts. Invite your friends to like/follow the page. Basically convince all your audiophile friends to try out Snakeoil OS. Same with the Google+ page.

Secondly, if you are wondering what that orange button on the right (and below) is, it's Patreon. Here's a video describing the idea behind Patreon.

If you like the Snakeoil project, you can become our Patron for just $1 a month. To become a patron, click the icon below:
