This is a bug fix release. There are a couple of motor driver bug fixes. We have also changed the default configuration for the rtl8192cu driver so that it does not try to use power saving mode. This driver is used by many low-cost Wi-Fi dongles such as the Edimax EW-7811Un. Sometimes these devices would go to sleep and not want to wake up, which caused problems for many people.

  • v4.4.32-17-ev3dev-ev3 for EV3.
