New Raspbian OS available with a number of improvements that we will discuss below. Surely one of them are very interested...
New versions: Sonic Pi, Scratch, Mathematica, Node-RED, WiringPi, RPi.GPIO, Java 8 version 65.
Experimental OpenGL driver for the desktop which uses the GPU to provide hardware acceleration. This is turned off by default. You can find it in the command-line version of raspi-config, under Advanced Options->GL Driver. Due to memory requirements, this will not work on Pi 1 or Pi Zero boards - it is solely for Pi 2. (raspi-config will only allow it to be enabled on a Pi 2; be warned that if you enable it on a Pi 2 and then move that SD card into a Pi 1 or Pi Zero, the Pi will not boot.)
Let's check out the performance:
sudo apt-get install mesa-utils && glxgears sudo apt-get install neverball && neverball
If you want to test more apps, just type: apt-cache search opengl
Run the next commands to update your distro:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install raspi-gpio sudo apt-get install xcompmgr libgl1-mesa-dri
