Time for the August Blog Update -- London Meetup, PineTab News, SOEdge And More!

Quite a bit of news covering the spectrum of new and upcoming products!

Progress on the #pinetab today.
Uboot is working. But it stops about 8 seconds into loading kernel with a pretty non descriptive "data error".
This is all through UART though, since the screen does not turn on.

Gonna try another kernel tomorrow to see if that works.

The first preview images for Manjaro ARM on the Raspberry Pi 4 is now available.

Be aware that they are Previews.
They indicate how far upstream "RPI foundation" are with aarch64 support for this board right now.

Manjaro ARM now has working 64-bit images for the Raspberry Pi 4.
These images are 64-bit only, so no 32-bit stuff.

The images are not ready for regular use yet, so we are keeping them internal, unless you want them for testing (in that case PM us).
They still lack at least Bluetooth and GPU acceleration.
