Latest NWDR RPi image, current_image.img.xz has been updated to
nwdr18.img.xz at this location:

This is the 4th image release this year. See the ChangeLog

more information about what has changed.

To update your current image without using the new image the following

Raspberry Pi type the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
cd n7nix
git pull
cd config
