Did the soft-fp version download just disappear?

Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:26 pm

Hi - I've been playing with Mono and having reached the conclusion I should run it on the soft-fp version of Wheezy instead of the hard-fp, I came back to the downloads page today to get the image for soft-fp and the links were gone! I'm 99.99% positive they were there at the weekend :-)

Have they been moved for a good reason? Is an updated version imminent? ;-)

It's probably related to this - http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 1&p=410993

Thanks Redhawk - I guess I expected the links to stop working rather than a section of the webpage to disappear...! Hope it comes back soon, or I can google a copy of it for the weekend elsewhere :-)

It's not related at all, the creation and distribution of the raspberry pi foundation images (of both debian armel and raspbian armhf) has nothing to do with the raspbian project.

The 2013-05-29 image seems to be available at http://mirror.bytemark.co.uk/raspberryp ... ezy-armel/ I don't know if that was the most recent one they released or not.

I'm not sure that this is a raspbian.org issue, because it is the Downloads page linked from the main RaspberryPi.org page that has changed.

Yep, that what I was getting at - I wouldn't have expected someone to actually edit the page and remove the links...

Cheers - it matches the one that Google have cached for the downloads page, so I think it's the same release that I would have gotten if I'd come back here a few hours sooner :-)
Thanks for the link, that's got me moving along again, nice one.
