Raspberry Pi: Raspbian on Stretch upgedated

Saturday, August 19th, 2017 | Gadgets

The Raspberry Pi team released the new Raspbian version Stretch in August 2017.
The Linux variant Raspbian for the Raspberry Pi is based on the Debian distribution. After the release of the new version 9 of Debian in June 2017, Raspbian is now retreating. The changes mainly concern the subdivision of the distribution, the user has to change only a little.

Security gap closed
Broadcom's security breach known as Broadpwn also affected the Raspberry Pi 3 and Zero W. The gap was closed.
Indirectly, a change in the handling of user accounts also improves security. Desktop programs and the configuration of the automatic login now use the actual logged on user. In addition, the sudo command does not assume that a password is required. The username pi is used by default as the initial user account in each Raspbian installation, so some programs assume that they are also used by these users. The change simplifies the use of self-created user accounts.
Alsa instead of Pulseaudio
The audio output via Bluetooth will use Alsa in the future. Pulseaudio is therefore no longer included in the Raspbian default installation. If you still need it, you have to install it yourself.

known problems
Shortly after the release of Raspbian Stretch, some minor problems became known. There are missing some Chinese and Japanese writings, they have to be installed by hand. In the configuration program for the Raspberry Pi the keyboard layout could not be adjusted, the error has already been corrected. An unresolved bug in the RealVNC server periodically causes a disappearance of the desktop taskliste. The Raspberry-Pi team currently recommends disabling the RealVNC server.
Raspbian update
To stretch an existing Raspbian installation to the new version
The following lines are required on the command line:

Sudo apt-get update
Sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade

Updated SD card images for Raspbian Stretch are also available for download.
