This is a stable maintenance release. We’ve pulled in the updates and security fixes from Debian 8.9 and the most recent ev3dev kernel.
There is a fix that should make Bluetooth start more reliably on the EV3 (i.e. Bluetooth shows as “Unavailable” until the EV3 is rebooted).
The only other notable change is for those with the color screen hack, a crash at boot is fixed.
Most of our work has been focused on ev3dev-stretch. It is nearing beta quality, so you might want to check it out.
