Team Tiny Core is pleased to announce the immediate availability of piCore-6.0:http://tinycorelinux.net/6.x/armv6/releases/6.0/
The most important change is use of the official long term 3.12.y (3.12.36) kernel to offer more stable operation over experimental kernels and to get wider range of hardware supported, specially the audio devices.
fltk library has been updated to 1.3.3 to enable unicode. fltk-1.1 and 1.3 can be installed at the same time, and old apps using 1.1 will continue to work.
Size of SD card images reduced.
Boots in safe overclocking mode to shorten boot time by 20% with performance governor; switch to ondemand when startup finished.

Updating previous versions on Raspberry Pi without removing SD card
Download piCore-6.0-boot.tar.gz extract to a temporary folder and overwrite content of /mnt/mmcblk0p1 after mounting it. It will overwrite custom boot options. If you have customised cmdline.txt on config.txt in the old system, do it again. Do not reboot if using wireless remote connection, otherwise you will loose connection due to incompatible kernel modules!
Next download kernel module tcz's from the repo matching new kernel version and reboot. You must have a new, updated system working.
Please note, there may be kernel module extensions which are not yet available in the repo.
Before modifying mmcblk01 content, it is adviced to make backup to a persistent device.
