PiCorePlayer v1.18b

Posted by trig on November 17, 2014

Steady improvement of the already rather good PiCorePlayer app continues with v1.18b, released on 2nd November.

V18b is the version to get for all new projects. It provides full support for Pi Rev B+ all the HiFiBerry products including the new HiFiBerry Amp.

(Note that the HiFiBerry Amp for the Pi B+ is on the way, but not yet here.)

If you are using an older version of PiCorePlayer there is probably no need to upgrade unless you are having problems. But users of older versions might find that the identification of WiFi networks wasn't always complete, and back at v1.16, the "in situ" upgrade didn't always work. (At least not for me.) It looks like v1.18b, in addition to supporting all that new hardware, also fixes the problem with reporting WiFi details. And I used the "in situ upgrade" to move from v1.17 to v1.18b without a hitch, and in a fraction of the time it would take to burn the new version to an SD card. 

Great work! Thank you, PiCorePlayer people.
