Linux on ARMRaspberry Pi Foundation's Simon Long today announced that a major update is available for the main Linux kernel-based operating system for Raspberry Pi single-board computers.

As many of you might know already, Raspberry Pi Foundation unveiled their newest and most advanced SBC, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, on February 29, 2016, finally implementing a 64-bit processor, along with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support.

While Raspberry Pi 3's new technologies were supported by the Debian-based Raspbian operating system, such as Bluetooth connectivity, there wasn't a graphical user interface to make the life of Raspberry Pi users easier when working with Bluetooth devices.
