v1.6 out

A few more goodies…

https://github.com/pftf/RPi4/releases/tag/v1.6

What’s inside this release?

Biggest change here is that your Pi will now boot at the default (Pi Foundation-recommended) frequency, instead of the 600MHz minimum. One less configuration option to change on every upgrade!

IMPORTANT: HTTP(S) boot, like PXE and iSCSI, will not currently work with the internal network card, because the GENET driver has not been upstreamed yet. This means you need a supported USB interface (Ax88772b) to use this feature.

As always, read the release notes and usual caveats.
