What's new in this version?
This version is coming with few internal changes, improvement and mainly bug fixes to ensure compatibility with Raspbian (Stretch).

Here is the changelog of version 2.12-r0:
  • Fix interactive configuration mode to accept commands with parameters
  • Fix various bug occuring with raspbian stretch
  • Fix info updated packages after upgrade
  • Fix typos and other bugs
  • Add configuration and tools (/usr/share/rpimonitor/scripts/) for OrangePi and Allwinner_H3
Note: Due to a change on network interface name, it is not possible to create a generic configuration file which will work on every installation. If you want to activate this feature, you will need to do a customization of network.conf.

Keep in mind that RPi-Monitor is a tool designed to be customized to your need and it will never cover all the situation without customization. The default configuration files proposed are installed in a directory named template. These templates are showing examples of what can be done and should help you during the customization.
