Major FreedomBox 0.7 Changes:

  • Translations! Full translations of the interface in Danish, Dutch,
    French, German and Norwegian Bokmål, and partial Telugu.
  • Support for OLinuXino A20 MICRO and LIME2
  • New Plinth applications: OpenVPN, reStore (currently disabled in
    Plinth config, until Debian package is uploaded)
  • Improved first-boot experience
  • Many bugfixes and cleanups

Known Bugs:

  • When Transmission page is accessed after install, it will show “403:
    Forbidden”. Here is a workaround for this issue:

  • Log into your FreedomBox using the console or SSH.

  • Edit the Transmission configuration:
    $ sudo vi /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json
    Change “rpc-whitelist-enabled” to false. Save and quit.

  • Reload the Transmission server.
    $ sudo invoke-rc.d transmission-daemon reload
    Important: Make sure you reload instead of restart* the service.
    Otherwise your changes to the configuration will get overwritten.

  • Access the Transmission page at https://freedombox.local/transmission
    or similar.
