I thought that looked like a nice list of improvements. I’d already been using I2C with bootc.net’s image, but the new 1-wire support piqued my interest. I downloaded & flashed the Occidentalis image onto a SD card and then booted up… The login is the usual pi/raspberry. Before I tested out 1-wire, I thought I would check to see if my Asus USB-N13 was supported as Adafruit compiled the driver it needs, rtl8192cu, into the kernel in their image. To my delight, the USB-N13 was immediately recognized.
