The PiAware 1.15 Debian package and SD card image are now available.
You can follow the upgrade instructions at flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/upgrade.
Afterwards do a
sudo /etc/init.d/piaware restart
and look at /tmp/piaware.out and it should be good. We tested this one a good bit plus the scope of changes is fairly narrow. It’s been up on the site for a couple days and reports have been good so far, too.
There’s an alternate approach with an SD card image that has everything preinstalled. The instructions for doing things that way can be found here piaware.flightcdn.com/raspbian-p … -1.img.zip
The big thing is that piaware will attempt to restart dump1090 if it doesn’t get any messages for an hour. This should have a big impact on reliability because it addresses the stalling problem that some people have been experiencing. More detailed release notes including prior versions can be found at github.com/flightaware/piaware/ … ease-Notes
dump1090 has gotten some nice updates as well. If you’ve built dump1090 yourself then you should probably update it (do a “git pull” in your dump1090 or dump1090_mr directory and follow github.com/flightaware/dump1090 … l-dump1090 or something like it. The 1.15 image has the latest version.
If you’re running the image and you want to upgrade then you can download the new image and prepare another SD card (or recycle your existing one) or go the manual route.
[UPDATE - changed hyperlink for SD card image build instructions to the correct flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/build]
[UPDATE 2 - added note that the 1.15 SD image download address is piaware.flightcdn.com/raspbian-p … -1.img.zip]
