Simon Long has just posted on the Raspberry Pi website about an update to Raspbian that has just been released. The following changes have been implemented:
- Scratch 2.0 (offline version) pre-installed, including ability to do physical computing!
- Thonny IDE for Python pre-installed (a new IDE which gives a nicer experience than the popular IDLE IDE).
- New icon set with thinner outlines.
Also released is an x86 image of the update, allowing both live-booting from a USB stick and wipe-and-installation.
Simon also announced that software development is well under way for the new version of Raspbian, based on Debian Stretch.
