Yesterday, the Raspberry Pi Foundation released a new version of the Raspberry Pi OS – 2022-01-28. According to the changelog, the developer team fixed several bugs and added new features.

For example, you can now set a resolution for VNC connections in the graphical configuration. That’s pretty nifty, because, until now, the process was fairly complex. This option is also available in the terminal tool raspi-config.

Since we are talking about VNC, the operating system automatically disables Mother when the VNC server is running and uses OpenBox as a fallback option.

In raspi-config you will also find an option to switch to legacy camera mode.

The current version uses Linux 5.10.92 as kernel. 7z and zip support is now available in the Lite image. The development team has also added gnome-keyring to the desktop image.
