Another Major Update for PiStar

Be sure to update your pi-star. There was a major update affecting OLED displays, YS, NXDN, and DMR gateways and several other internal and binary changes.

I don’t see any changes in ports at this point, I’ll look in the xxxxHosts.txt files to make sure though.

I saw some chatter a couple of weeks ago  where Andy had been working on some updates and house cleaning of defunct reflectors and hosts, It might be a good idea to update every morning for the next few days to make sure the updates are current and prevent conflicts in your pi-star version.
