Get Notified on New Version Released

Thu Mar 24, 2016 3:32 am

If there a Mailing List or Forum thread to subscribe to that will notify me when a new Raspbian version is released?
Sure, I can check the web site Downloads every day, but... I'm lazy.
Looked around already and couldn't find anything like that.
Thanks.

You don't need new OS versions. Just run
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
every few days and you will always have the newest version.
Sometimes it needs a "dist-upgrade" (if packages are held back).
Minimal Kiosk Browser (kweb)
Slim, fast webkit browser with support for audio+video+playlists+youtube+pdf+download
Optional fullscreen kiosk mode and command interface for embedded applications
Includes omxplayerGUI, an X front end for omxplayer

But I do...need new OS Versions. I have a product that is built on the RPi and I need to make sure the install scripts and setup instructions work properly for every build of Raspbian that comes out.
I have, in the past, assumed that it would all work OK as new releases were posted and got burned.
Thanks.
