Raspberry Pi firmware update improves performance
The Raspberry Pi firmware update 1.2 released on 25th January improves the Raspberry Pi’s performance in various ways.
The Raspberry Pi’s core operating system, Raspbian, was rewritten to use ARMv6 processors, improving performance. In addition, the Raspberry Pi’s graphical user interface (GUI), Python and SQLite libraries have been updated to improve performance.
Finally, the Raspberry Pi’s network interface has been improved to improve performance when using network services.
Raspberry Pi firmware update addresses security issues
In a blog post on Raspberry Pi firmware update addressing security issues, the Raspberry Pi Foundation writes:
We have just issued a firmware update for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 Model B+ boards, which fixes several security issues.
The most important of these is a serious vulnerability in the Broadcom Wi-Fi chip used on these boards, which could allow an attacker to gain access to thePi’s memory and therefore to the computer’s running applications.
We recommend that all users of a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 update their firmware as soon as possible. We have posted the firmware files for both boards on our website, along with detailed instructions on how to update.
Raspberry Pi Model B+ gets a firmware update
I hope you are all well. Today we are announcing a firmware update for the Raspberry Pi Model B. This update includes a number of bug fixes and improvements.
The firmware update is available from the Raspberry Pi website and from our distributors. Please note that the update is a large download, so please be patient while it downloads. Once it has finished downloading, you will need to unpack it.
If you have not already done so, you will need to install the Raspbian operating system on your Raspberry Pi. If you have not already done so, you can find the Raspbian release notes on the Raspberry Pi website.
Once you have installed Raspbian, you will need to update your firmware. To do this, you will need to connect your Raspberry Pi to the internet and launch the Raspberry Pi Configuration Tool.
In the Raspberry Pi Configuration Tool, click on the ‘Firmware’ tab.
In the ‘Firmware’ tab, under ‘Boot loader’ click on the ‘Update firmware’ button.
In the ‘Update firmware’ window, browse to the file that you have just downloaded and click on the ‘Update firmware’ button.
Once the firmware update has been completed, your Raspberry Pi will restart. You will now need to log in to your Raspberry Pi and enter the following command to start the Raspbian graphical user interface:
The raspberry pi firmware update process is now much more streamlined, easier to follow, and more reliable. This update is recommended for all raspberry pi owners.
