Media Keys and Suspend Support Released

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

The next version of the firmware has been released, v2.2 which is part of GUI v1.1.6

This new firmware supports pairing of the media keys:

pause/play, next track previous track, etc.

You can also pair the suspend key which will put your computer to sleep. This was widely requested.

There is no official pairing in the GUI as of yet, you’ll have to use the commandline which ships with the GUI on every OS.

New Canadian Distributor – BuyaPi.ca

Monday, January 13th, 2014

God I hate shipping to Canada. There I said it. Not because I don’t like Canadian’s, but because it takes so damn long.

So today, I’m excited to announce a new authorized distributor, BuyaPi

BuyaPi.ca is one of Canada’s leading retailers of microcomputers and micro-controllers, as well as their accessories. Based out of Ottawa, their web store ships across Canada and the US. They carry Raspberry Pi’s, Arduinos, and a wide variety of accessories and other electronic components.
