The excellent Raspberry Pi magazine The MagPi have released their 50th issue (free to download but also available to buy in print).
To celebrate they feature the top 50 Raspberry Pi projects as voted for by readers and their panel of judges. We are very pleased to have been included in their top software projects as judged by Eben Upton. Thanks! 🙂
Thanks also to everyone who has contributed to the RetroPie project and to the developers of the many emulators and games that we include.
Do you need a power switch for your arcade project? The PowerBlock is a power switch solution for the Raspberry Pi that lets you safely switch on and off your machine such that you do not have to worry about data loss or corrupt file systems. And the PowerBlock recently got an upgrade.
RetroPie has a brand new website – https://retropie.org.uk.
Although the old site living under http://blog.petrockblock.com has served us well over the last years, the forum was becoming increasingly slow, and the project really needed its own presence.
Hopefully you will like what we have come up with – a simple site with general info, and a new forum running off nodebb – which is not only fast, but also works much better on mobile devices.
The old forum posts have not been moved, as we decided it would be better to start with a fresh layout, and it would have made the migration far more complicated. You can however access the old forum via http://blog.petrockblock.com/forums/forum/retropie-project-forum/.
