I have finally got around to something I should have a long time ago - automating the build process of creating ev3dev SD card images. Now we can create new image files for all platforms in around 30 minutes. The images are hosted on bintray, which is one of the many awesome services that are free for open source projects like ev3dev.

We are calling these “nightly” images. The quotes mean that we won’t actually create new images every night, but just on demand whenever there are significant updates to packages.

These images are totally untested, so we could use a few folks to try them out and see if they actually work. Click the nifty little badge below to find the downloads.

2016-08-13 update: Image build snapshots are now hosted here.
