This is it. After more than a year of development, the Snakeoil Squad is pleased to announce the next major release of Snakeoil OS - 1.1.0 Blind Testing. This release is dedicated to Antonio Cheng, my best friend who passed away in Feburary.

Antonio, you have touched my heart and my life. We will miss you dearly and I am sorry I wasn't there more for you.

Read this blog post to discover some the major features in Blind Testing. Full change log at the end of this post.

The ISO downloads are for people new to Snakeoil. You do not need this ISO if you are already running Snakeoil OS 1.0.x (Golden Ears). Simply proceed to the Snakeoil Firmwares section to download and apply the latest firmware.

As always, refer to the Snakeoil Reference Manual for more details.

And the Raspberry pi edition is released. There'd be bugs in there, please report any here, and it'd be fixed in 1.1.1.

Write the image to a microsd card like any Pi images, and if you want to SSH in, the login is 'pi'. and the password is the stock 'raspberry'.

Does the raspberry image contains Mpd+upmpdcli??

MPD is included by default (as it's a custom build). upmpdcli you can either install it manually via APT, or via the Snakeoil menu. Once upmpdcli is installed the option "mpd+upmpdcli" will automatically appear in the menu.

I Have activation code, I get the green activation notice but the dashboard still shows "free edition" and there are no additional settings. Can anyone help! Is there a way to activate it via command line. Current setup is an Intel i3 computer/60 GB SSD for Snakeoil OS/ 1 terabyte SSD for music storage > Audio Alchemy DDP-1 with PS-5 > Simaudio Moon 400m monoblocks > EgglestonWorks Rosa speakers.
