Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the availability of piCore-5.2rc1, the first release candidate for 5.2:

http://tinycorelinux.net/5.x/armv6/release_candidates/

Change log for 5.2rc1:

* kernel updated to 3.13.3
* updated RPi firmware
* useBusybox in tc-functions changed to eliminate interference with certain installed GNU apps
* rebuildfstab: do not replace fstab entries for a device that does not have "Added by TC" on the line (thanks to Gerald Clark)
* init: increase the default inode count
* ondemand: don't list extensions under subdirs in onboot maintenance
* busybox updated to 1.22.1 and split suid/nosuid for better security
* ldd: Added quotes for binaries with spaces in their names
* /etc/services: modified to suit rpcbind rather than portmap
* tc-functions: Removed the getpasswd stars to allow backspace to work
* added accelerated arm-mem library to spead-up memcmp, memcpy, memmove & memset

Images with preinstalled SSH for headless operation and with GUI also available.

Well the plain image still doesn't work with my usb keyboard, but the SSH version works fine.

I'm in the middle of setting up my new wandboard Quad.....  depending on how that goes, I'll test the wifi.

**Edit** Wifi works fine with the rtl8192cu driver.   Did you modify it like we did with 3.12.y?

Thanks Bela

How is your audio card doing? Do you have success with it for your application?

I do not know what to do with the keyboard, as my USB keyboard works :(

rtl8192cu: I disabled power saving

I looked at the git comments in the source tree for this driver, I don't see any changes, so it probably still doesn't work anyway.   Unless there is an upstream networking issue.

Man the kernel releases are flying lately,  3.13.3 is already marked stable.  3.10.y seems like yesterday.

Yes. If 3.13.3 is OK (and it looks OK) I will keep it for 5.2
