Easy Pyro versions 1.2.9 and released

December 09, 2019 — BarryK

EasyOS Pyro is the "old" series, superseded by the Buster series, however Pyro is still receiving updates that match those of Buster releases. The latest Easy Buster is 2.1.9 and, announced earlier today:

Easy Pyro is built with packages compiled from source in 'oe-qky-src', my port of OpenEmbedded, and the first releases were for Quirky Linux, mid-2017. Since then, there have been some package upgrades, such as for Qt5 and Xorg, later in 2018 and early 2019, however the core packages are mostly 2017 vintage.

Although many of the packages are getting a bit "long in the tooth", the Pyro series still works great. Although the Buster series is intended to be the replacement, many users like Pyro, me included, so it is still getting updates.

Please read the above link for the Buster announcement, as the features also apply to Pyro. Except, of course, Pyro is not built with DEBs.

Here is the primary download site:
