Snappy Ubuntu Core updates its image for Raspberry Pi 2

raspberry pi 2

Canonical has high hopes for Snappy Ubuntu Core, its commitment to the Internet of Things (IoT), and in recent days the activity of its developers has been frantic. Thus, they have not only corrected bugs of all kinds and added functionality improvements, but also have updated the image for Raspberry Pi 2, while they have decided to make available to users a new branch based on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, which adds to the already available Ubuntu 15.04-based Vivid Verbet.

But we go by parts, first the most important since it will be immediately reflected in the use that millions of users make of the Raspberry Pi 2 as an inexpensive multifunction device, and it's interesting to see new distro alternatives emerge for it, adding to Raspbian,Ubuntu Mate, OpenELEC, Pidora, Minibian or Risc OS among others. This new image is now available in the space for this purpose on the Canonical site, and its size is approximately 145 MB.

The other novelty of interest has to do with the Ubuntu 15.10 based image Wily Werewolf, which unlike the one based on Vivid Verbet will be a rolling release and more experimental, for those who seek to always have the newest packages even if it is a project aimed at small devices. But the development continues, and beyond the news that may come from the blog of Ubuntu Insights now you can also see the current state of development from this blackboard by Trello.
