The Raspberry Pi Foundation continues to provide updates to the Debian-based Raspbian operating system. Developers add new features to make the device a more attractive option for beginners who want to start learning programming or who want to get into the DIY field.
Raspbian's latest update brings several new features and updates. First of all, this release is released with a new program called "Recommended Software", which developers call "their own version of Apple's App Store."
In order to provide some recommended software to users, this new option has been included in the Preferences Menu.
"When we find new software proposed or when more developers offer us programs, we add them to Recommended Software to keep it up to date," the official announcement added.
Installing a program from Recommended Software is simple - you just need to select the box in front of the program and click OK. The removal process is also similar.
In other Raspbian updates, there is a new modern PDF viewer called qpdfView. Replaces the old Xpdf program. There is also a new Installation Guide, which aims to make the installation process clearer.
You can update your existing Raspbian installation by executing the following commands or visiting the following link.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
