Raspberry Pi OS Updated With Desktop Improvements, NetworkManager, Picamera2
Raspberry Pi OS brings a number of desktop enhancements including a new searchable main menu, new audio input control support on the taskbar, and NetworkManager can now be optionally used for managing the wired/wireless network configurations as an alternative to their existing dhcpcd-based management. Optional NetworkManager support is great and should be easier for some Linux users to manage their network configurations. Switching over to NetworkManager can be done now using raspi-config.
