Not really the sort of news we wanted to give today, but it's important nonetheless: https://www.pine64.org/2020/09/17/psa-vulnerability-disclosure-2020-09-17/
@m0n5t3r Everyone's hammering the server so hard that we had to upgrade the hardware!
@zigpress Mostly likely it's because you have other items inside the same order. There's shipping restrictions on items that contain a lithium battery (including the PinePhone).
September Blog Update Time!
- We're an Arm ecosystem partner now!
- New and improved Pine Store upcoming
- #PinebookPro production delay due to LCD shortage
- #PineTab new image releases
- #PinePhone Manjaro CE preorders start Sept. 17
- #PinePhone camera developments
- p-boot multi-image loader
Nvidia buying ARM is unlikely to change anything for us.
The currently shipping version is the final hardware! All the work left ahead of us is in software. But there's plenty of incredible software developers getting us there. 😊
There's no plans at the moment for that. The potential market for such a case is way too small to justify the effort and expense of putting it into production.
We are upgrading the #PINE64 cluster to make it more reliable and easier to maintain remotely.
Scheduled downtime 12 Sept. at 11 AM CET (5/6AM CDT/EDT).
Services will be offline no longer than 5hrs.
Pine Store will remain operational.
New Pine Store (WIP pictures) with more payment options (Stripe) being built. We are, however, struggling with crypto payments (@BTCPayServer), since we haven't received a response from
Bitstamp as of today. We won't use Kraken - their form requires disclosure of private info.
@romariorios It's in stock right now, if you want an ANSI keyboard model. :)
@brad It's down at the moment. It has been having many issues and is waiting for us to have time to debug it. :)
@sporksmith The cover can be a bit tricky to come off... if you haven't noticed it yet, there's a notch in the bottom right corner where it's easiest to pull open.
* Regular CE - 2GB RAM/ 16GB eMMC
* Convergence Package - 3GB RAM/ 32GB eMMC bundled with a USB-C dock.
