Snakeoil ISO - 1.0.0 (Golden Ears)
It's here - Snakeoil OS 1.0.0 Golden Ears. This is how Snakeoil OS should be, and now it finally is. The Golden Ears development took approximately 5 months (including 2 months of testing) and is a complete re-write from the ground up. This is a big change:
  • 36 new features since Snakeoil OS 0.1.5d. Brand new asynchronous WebApp (Like how USB 2.0 DAC communicates with the computer)
  • Fixed 23 bugs discovered in alpha testing and 12 bugs in beta testing
  • Updated documentation
Long story short, it's a lot of work. Snakeoil OS is better now, and I reckon it sounds even better than before (This was the big worry before Whew).

What To Do
This is where it gets a bit complicated:
  1. New users: Download this ISO and install
  2. 0.1.x users: Please download this ISO and do a complete re-install. Make sure you do not wipe out your music files when doing this
  3. 0.8.x users: Go to the 1.0.0 firmware thread
  4. 0.9.x users: Go to the 1.0.0 firmware thread
