FabScan PI Software Release

A first version of the FabScan PI software is released now.  You can find further information at https://www.fabscan.org

Behind the link you will find a page which is a good starting point for the installation.  More about the new hardware and software is provided by the GitHub repository. 

I recommend to use the ISO SD-card image. Connect all needed hardware and flash the ISO to an SD-card. After the Raspberry Pi booted, you can point your browser to  https://<your-pi’s-ip-address> for calling the FabScan PI web fronted. Chrome and Firefox recommended now, there are some issues with Safari at the moment .  I will fix the Browser issues as soon as possible.

Have fun!
