Please don’t misunderstand me. I don’t want anybody to hurry.
I just bought an Raspberry Pi 2 today at amazon and want to install it next week with the newest Retropie image.
My question is now, if there is a plan to release the final version of the Retropie 3.0 in the next few days, so I don’t have to reinstall and reconfigure my Pi again. :)
So this question is just directed to the devs. :)
Thank you.FloobMember05/10/2015 at 15:09Post count: 1629
I dont think there is a hard date in place for the new versions, but upgrades should be easier in future as I dont believe there would be major changes to config file locations.
Regardless you should try the latest image and give it a go if just to get to grips with it. It doesnt take very long to rebuild an image once you have the hang of it.dishinsParticipant05/10/2015 at 17:41Post count: 47
Just to know, is there any good reason to update from a nice working 2.6 image to a 3.0 beta or its just better to wait for 3.0 final?FloobMember05/10/2015 at 18:13Post count: 1629
If you’re happy with 2.6 I’d stick with it.
Updating to 3 wont improve the emulation itself.
Version 3 is lovely though, lots of nice options to easily manage resolution and emulator choice.
Some details are here:

I’ve been using the 3.00 beta with my new Pi 2 and it works a treat. I’ve not had any issues and as Floob said, the extra options are quite useful. I especially like the emulator switch option by pressing ‘x’ when a game loads. This makes thinks so much more convenient.cacophony555Participant05/11/2015 at 19:48Post count: 126
Does the new per ROM emulator selection functionality work for MAME with 3.0 Beta ?
