The default user account in Raspbian has always been called ‘pi’, and a lot of the desktop applications assume that this is the current user.
This has been changed for Stretch, so now applications like Raspberry Pi Configuration no longer assume this to be the case.
If a Sense HAT is connected, the extension will control that in preference to the emulator.
The differences between Jessie and Stretch are mostly under-the-hood optimisations, and you really shouldn’t notice any differences in day-to-day use of the desktop and applications.Update Star has been tested to meet all of the technical requirements to be compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, 2008, and Windows XP, 32 bit and 64 bit editions.Simply double-click the downloaded file to install it.In both files, change every occurrence of the word ‘jessie’ to ‘stretch’.(Both files will require sudo to edit.) Then open a terminal window and execute Answer ‘yes’ to any prompts.
In the last Jessie release, we added the offline version of Scratch 2.
