This latest release of KubOS and Kubos Linux includes a random assortment of much needed features, documentation, and bug fixes. We’ve finally documented the minimum system requirements for KubOS (after typing it way too many times in the community Slack). As for the features, we’ve added the much-requested USB support on the Beaglebone Black, and some new config options to let you fine-tune the file service.
File Service Improvements
The file service has taken another step towards being optimized for a space-ground link. We’ve added extensive configuration options to allow you to fully customize the transfer behavior to optimize your cpu load and link behavior. As you’re testing your space-ground link, we highly recommend tweaking these configurations to get the best possible throughput on your file transfers!
USB Support on the Beaglebone Black
Many users have been requesting USB support for the Beaglebone Black, and we figured we’d go ahead and take care of that for them! Check out the kubos-linux-build release for the full list of changes that this new release includes.
