Build Highlights:

    popcornmix Wrote:Note: there is an sdram related change. We've removed the "pvt" operation that disables sdram twice a second with a new calibration. This was already being done when using sdram overclock or audio_pwm_mode=2.

    Our tests suggest that it's better never to do this, as whenever you get a different value from the expected one, memtester is more likely to fail.

    So shouldn't be a problem, but any with change like this, it's worth keeping an eye out for any regressions.
  3. Add dtparam and dtc userland binaries
  4. Bump MySQL client library from 5.1.73 to 5.7.12
