Yes, only iot right now, this week i'm planning on working out the
lxqt/console/bbxm/etc versions we had with Debian Stretch (9.x)

Going forward...

Our Debian (8.x) "Jessie" build's are going to be deep frozen now..
(it's actually pretty frozen from Debian upstream, but "i" was still
building newer kernel's, i'm disabling that today. (disabling does not
mean removing..)) Our last default kernel on these were 4.4.x-ti..
But you can install anything from 3.8.13 -> 5.2.0-rc7

Now Debian (9.x) "Stretch": will be now frozen, like Jessie was
before, last kernel is really v4.14.x-ti (some bone users used
4.19.x-bone-rt, as v4.14.x-ti-rt kinda sucked).. For all the
am335x/am57xx "BLOBS", user-space stuff, they will remain tied to
v4.14.x-ti... Yet "i" will still build newer kernels, till (debian
11.0 is released)..

Debian (10.x) "Buster": right now it's mostly v4.19.x-ti, but all
"our" changes will be tested in Bullseye first, then back ported to
Buster..

Regards,

I’ve also added Buster to the “Alpha” images on https://beagleboard.org/latest-images. I’m expecting to add the flasher images there as well and the disk images are already on the images site.

A few regressions I’ve noticed:

  • You cannot scroll back in Cloud9 IDE
  • pastebinit creates many Python deprecation warnings
  • show-pins.pl is broken and I’ve submitted a pull-request to fix

Features I hope to see soon:

  • Integration of https://github.com/jadonk/c9.beagle.bone101 to start displaying bone101 on boot-up
  • Potential movement of cloud9-examples to the root of /var/lib/cloud9 so that history shows up in the changes tab (potentially with contributions to .c9 in this repo and inclusion of the ‘autorun’ folder with a README.md describing the bonescript-autorun.service)
  • Install show-pins (without the .pl) into the path
