RuneAudio 0.2-beta released

RuneAudio + Beaglebone Black

RuneAudio 0.2-beta version has been released (see the changelog).

Probably the biggest news of this version is that Beaglebone Black has been added as certified working device. Finally USB storage automount has been introduced, and it supports FAT32, exFAT, NTFS and HFS+ file systems. Network mounts over NFS protocol are now possible (and suggested in most cases). Airplay playback is now working via ShairPort. And finally a good news for Raspberry Pi users: analog output is now selectable in MENU > MPD in RuneUI, although it’s still buggy (we applied a temporary and not perfect fix, hoping hope to solve it before the next release).

RuneUI has also been updated to 1.2 version, with some relevant changes here too: Album art visualization has been introduced in the main playback screen (as you can see in the screenshot below) and Last.FM scrobbling is now configurable under MENU > Settings (please make sure you put the correct credentials, otherwise it won’t work).

System has been generally improved in speed and stability.

As usual, we invite you to tell us your test experience in our forum.

A final note: we left some developer tools inside the image for debug – we’ll remove them from the next version, making the image lighter.
