NEWS 210101 about RaspEX with LXDE based on Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa. Works on the newest Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB/4GB/8GB RAM
I have upgraded the whole system and replaced the old kernel 4.19.108-exton-v7l+ with kernel 5.4.83-exton-v7l+. RaspEX Build 210101 is a Linux ARM system for Raspberry Pi 4 with 2GB/4GB/8GB RAM and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B or Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. It is based on Debian, Ubuntu 20.04 and Linaro (Open Source software for ARM SoCs). Both Firefox and Midori Private Browser are pre-installed. I have also installed Samba and RealVNC so you can connect to your Windows computers in your Home Network and/or control RaspEX on your Raspberry Pi 4 from your Windows computers with VNC Viewer and/or PuTTY (Telnet and SSH client). Furthermore some extra Network Tools, SMTube (YouTube browser which allows to browse, search and play YouTube videos), PulseAudio for better sound in YouTube and RaspotifyRaspotify is a Spotify Connect client for Raspbian on the Raspberry Pi that just works. Study all installed packages in RaspEX Build 210101.

NOTE: Build 201227 is ONLY for Raspberry Pi 4 Model B with 2GB/4GB/8GB RAM. My new RaspEX Build from 210101 is also for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, Raspberry Pi 3 Model B or Raspberry Pi 2 Model B.

Kernel 5.4.83-exton-v7l+ (for Rpi 4) and 5.4.83-exton-v7+ (for Rpi 3/2) are used in Build 210101.
