This last item adds masses to the distribution and so the install now requires a 4GB SD card. Hopefully not too many people will have 2GB cards that are rendered useless…
Plus! NOOBS 1.3 is now out of beta and includes the following:
- Ability to install multiple OSes on a single card (presumably a big whopper of a card!)
- Support for network installation of OSes from the Foundation’s repository
- Multiple flavours of Raspbian including one which boots directly into Scratch.
- Improved integration of language, keyboard and display settings between NOOBS and guest operating systems.
The distros are available to download, as usual, from the Foundation website.
