[Update] RPi-Monitor : The repository is again online

Due to a hacking on the website which is also hosting RPi-Monitor repository, I did removed the repository for a couple of hours.
The issue is fixed and as it was not coming from the repository I did restore it and everything is now behaving as before.  

You can execute the following command to add RPi-Monitor repository in you repository list.

    sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rpimonitor.list

Thank you for your understanding.


RPi-Monitor : The repository is closed but the project is still working

The success of RPi-Monitor looks to be greater than I was imagining and the traffic generated on the website hosting the repository is now too important.

I had to remove the repository from this web site and I will never publish update using this repository.

You should then now remove the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rpimonitor.list from your system to avoid further update errors.

The current action is done in emergency and I will later how see how I can reactivate such a repository.

Thank you for your understanding.

Test and validation requires your help.

A new model of publication

I'm changing the way to publish RPi-Monitor. Until now, I was immediately publishing stable versions. From now, when version will be ready for publication, I will create a beta version and ask user to try and test this version. From my point of view, the quality of beta version will be the same as the previous release but it will let me the chance to correct or improve some features before official release.

Why changing the model of publication

RPi-Monitor has more and more functionalities and testing them become more and more complex. You are a user of RPi-Monitor and want to try the new feature in advance? You can then install this beta version and give your feedback on new functionalities and share your feeling about the current developments.

If you don't know yet what RPI-Monitor do, you should better install a stable releae and have a look to RPi-Monitor Overview.
