I've just installed NOOBS 1.2.1 on my Pi, not having touched it since April.
BIG thanks to whoever fixed the sound so aplay/Scratch co-exist with Python.
I notice that the screen lock icon near the bottom-right STILL doesn't work. It's easy to fix, though: install the package 'suckless' and you have the most minimal screen-locker imaginable (no feedback that you're typing your password!).
Beeps (control-G) still don't work, but from last time I gathered that no one but me cares
I'll get back to trying to fix that myself One Day!
