MeX NEWS/CHANGES 160630
Mex Linux is no longer based on Linux Mint. MeX build 160630 is based only on Debian 8.5 and Ubuntu 16.04. I have replaced the original kernel with “my” special kernel 4.6.0-7-exton. All packages in MeX Linux have been upgraded to the latest version by 160630. This version of MeX uses Cinnamon 3.0.5. Linux Mint 18 (to be released “later this week") will also use Cinnamon 3.0.5 as Desktop environment.

NEWS 160629 about RaspEX with OpenCPN pre-installed

The system is now based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. I've also upgraded OpenCPN to version 4.2.1. (Latest for Linux). To my great joy also this version of RaspEX worked together with the 7″ Touchscreen Monitor for Raspberry Pi "out of the box".

NOTE: Today's version of RaspEX hasn't been distributed yet.

The 7″ Touchscreen Monitor for Raspberry Pi works in RaspEX Build 160426, based on Ubuntu 16.04, with Kodi Media Center 16.0

Great news 160627 about RaspEX Build 160426
I got the official 7″ Touchscreen Monitor for Raspberry Pi today. I started immediately to test the touchscreen running RaspEX. To my great pleasure (and surprise) the touchscreen worked perfectly out of the box! I.e. I didn’t have to install any extra packages to make it work. According to Raspberrypi.org only Raspbian OS is supposed to give full functionality without a physical keyboard or mouse.
