Gina mentioned in OctoPrint On Air #19 that starting with 1.3.10 OctoPrint will make sure that the tools it uses itself is current enough. As a software developer myself, I think that is a fine thing to do. But... I am not real familiar with the Linux OS. Will running the standard
sudo apt-get -y update sudo apt-get -y upgrade
be all it takes to keep my OS in compliance with OctoPrint? Gina specifically mentioned Python, PIP, and Setup Tools (not sure if I heard the last one correctly). I also don't want to do an update/upgrade and find that I am no longer in compliance because a newer untested version of something has been installed (and thus not be able to run OctoPrint!).
I'm not sure who, other than Gina herself, can answer this, but I look forward to more guidance on this.
