The Apple II program server for the Raspberry Pi, A2Server has been updated.   According to the posting on Facebook from Ivan Drucker, the author, this update includes fixes and also installs the latest GS/OS Releases.

A2SERVER 1.2.5 is now available. Its main new feature is to offer to install GS/OS 6.0.1 for network boot (as it did before), as well as community releases 6.0.2 and 6.0.3. It also now includes HFS.FST with the install, and has a handful of bug fixes.

You can update by typing “a2server-update” at the command prompt in Raspple II, the A2SERVER virtual machine, or whatever Linux box you’re running on.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, A2SERVER is a file server and network boot host for Apple II computers, allowing you to easily share files between your Apple II’s, classic Macs, and modern computers on the same network. It’s easy to set up, and runs on a Raspberry Pi, which is pretty much the cheapest computer in existence. It also is available as a premade virtual machine for your modern computer, or can be installed directly on some Linux computers.

A2Server is a free download and is available from the A2Server website at:
