  • HiPi::BCM2835 and HiPi::Wiring have been moved to their own distributions.
  • New HiPi:GPIO module for direct access to GPIO pin functions.
  • Installation is now by a deb package, from CPAN or using the source tarball.
  • Documentation has been rewritten.
  • The main distribution now uses the Perl Artistic License
  • A comprehensive command line tool - hipi-energenie - has been added to allow control of Energenie sockets, monitors and adapters.
