We are pleased to announce that FreedomBox now supports two new hardware models: the Banana Pro™ single-board computer and the Pine64(+) single-board computer. This means that the FreedomBox team will publish operating system images for each of these two boards whenever a new version of FreedomBox is released. For now, images for these two boards are only available for the Testing and Nightly versions of FreedomBox, but images will be available for the Stable version soon. Download the images here.
