Big news from balenaHQ! Since the release of the Raspberry Pi 4 back in June we’ve been working tirelessly to bring support to balenaOS. Our work has resulted in the first, fully-functional, 64-bit OS for the Raspberry Pi 4, allowing you to mix and match multiple container architectures on this new device.
In addition to this groundbreaking work, we’ve put together a very detailed account of the EtcherPro development process. We’ve covered the various design challenges and iterations in great detail which, in this writer’s opinion, makes for a great read.
We’ve also finalized the date and opened ticket sales for our 2019 Hackathon in Barcelona! It’s a great opportunity to get started with balena and meet some of the team you may have chatted to on support or in the forums; we’ll all be there.
After that we have our usual community contributions, this month showcasing management of Arduino devices and a neat flight tracking setup.
See you next month!

Projects of the month
Every month we like to feature a few projects built by the community, this month it’s:
*Manage, monitor, and update hundreds of Arduino devices for a shop installation: First up, @tmigone has been at it again, and has documented how balenaCloud was used with Raspberry Pis and a NUC to manage, monitor, and update hundreds of Arduino devices for a shop installation.
balena ADS-B Multi-Service Flight Tracker: Secondly, you may have seen it mentioned on our Twitter account already but just in case you missed it, @ketilmo has built and published a balena ADS-B Multi-Service Flight Tracker. This project enables you to receive positional information directly from aircraft passing overhead and share it with services such as Flightradar and Flightaware (and more). The best part is these sites will give you free premium access in return for the data!
Feel free to give them a try and let the world know how you get on in the forums; the authors of these projects would love to know how you’re using them.
