This release ends support for Jessie OS . If you are still on Jessie, we highly encourage you to re-image your SD card with PiAware 7 or upgrade your OS to continue receiving updates.
If you are re-imaging an existing setup, be sure to back up your SD card and reclaim your unique feeder-id after re-imaging. Re-imaging and reclaiming instructions can be found at PiAware - Upgrade PiAware to the latest version - FlightAware. Note that if you are testing the new Wi-Fi setup via web or mobile device without reclaiming your feeder-id, it will automatically claim a new feeder-id on your FlightAware account. You should set your existing feeder-id via piaware-config.txt if you want to resume your statistics.
The official release will be available for update in a few weeks.
If you have some spare hardware laying around or have some time over the holidays, try it out and and let us know if you see any issues. Please provide which Raspberry Pi model you are testing on. We’re looking for users with Raspberry Pi Zero, Pi Zero 2 W, Pi 3B+, and Pi 4s.
Wrote Piaware SD Card image ver 7.0 to 8 Gb microSD card
Added file ssh in /boot partition
Added WiFi credentials in /boot/piaware-config.txt
Slipped microSD card into RPi Model 4, 1 Gb,
Could SSH, but now MAC address for WiFi is that which was previously (ver 6.1) for Wired Connection.
Tried to claim from Android Phone’s browser, using Bluetooth, but failed.
Finally edited file /boot/piaware-config.txt and at bottom added following line (existing feeder-id) and rebooted feeder-id xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
I flashed 2 Mode-S nodes (Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Rev 1.1) and 1 UAT node (Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2). All 3 are connected via wired Ethernet. This is the only unexpected thing I’ve encountered.
