A very short service announcement.
Raspbian Stretch is now available for Raspberry Pis hosted in our Raspberry Pi Cloud. This joins Raspbian Jessie and Ubuntu Xenial as available images. With all of these you can upload an SSH key through our control panel and log in directly. Re-imaging and rebooting can both also be done directly from our control panel.
Re-imaging your Raspberry Pi will reset the image and delete all data on your Cloud Pi.
On the server side the most significant upgrade is PHP 7, which should double the performance of PHP-based applications running on the Raspberry Pi.
