RetroPie 3.3 Released

After rolling new images, fixing bugs, re-rolling we are finally there: RetroPie 3.3.

Major features of this release include

  • Mupen64plus and Reicast controller configuration added to the EmulationStataion controller config setup.
  • Playstation Portable emulator ppsspp included by default now.
  • New exprimental module for OpenTTD
  • Jessie images as BETA releases.

And many smaller bug fixes and improvements. You can see details in the change log below. The Jessie images are to be considered BETA as there may be bugs in configuration modules or emulators that are not present on the Wheezy version.

We plan to move to Jessie only with the next release so that we can concentrate on maintaining only four instead of eight images. Everyone is invited to give feedback if you experience problems with your RetroPie Jessie setup.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this release!

You can find the SD-card images in the Downloads Sections.
Installation Instructions can be found at Github: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/First-Installation
