is it possible to update SM without re-flashing yet? #43241
I noticed that SM 1.4.4 was posted on stellarmate.com
(using RPI4 with 1.4.3)
A while ago it was mentioned that now it should be possible to upgrade to a new version without re-flashing.
How?
I can see that option in the App but it says that my version is up to date.
Is it possible to do without the App, through VNC/RPI?
Thanks!

Yes it is, but not at firmware level, that requires a re flash...
The latest version put up last night is based on KDE now, and not Mate, and requires a re flash... :)

Jasem was hinting on this feature.. A big change such us Mate --> KDE won't be possible, I guess.

whoah that is a huge change! Hellloooooo KDE. The image is much smaller, too.

Any plans for 64bit support to take advantage of the Pi4 processor and 4 gigs of RAM? That would be snappy.
