It’s taken a bit, but we have a fresh set of easy-install images for PiTFT displays, this time built on Raspbian Jessie. If you have a Pi with one of our displays, check out one the following guides for links to the new images:
- Adafruit PiTFT 3.5″ Touch Screen for Raspberry Pi
- Adafruit PiTFT – 2.8″ Touchscreen Display for Raspberry Pi
- Adafruit 2.8″ PiTFT – Capacitive Touch
- Adafruit 2.2″ PiTFT HAT – 320×240 Display
If you haven’t switched to Jessie yet, this might be a good time to give it a shot. I’ve seen a few bug reports, but by and large it seems to be working smoothly for most users, and it’s been running cleanly on a couple of my Pi systems since the end of September. There’s usually a sweetspot for Debian (or Debian-based, in this case) stable releases where the release-time bugs have been worked out and the packaged software is still relatively new – we’re probably right in that window.
