Raspberry Pi OS Now Supports Epson Printers, Drops Adobe Flash Player

This is the first Raspberry Pi OS release in 2021 and comes about one and a half months after the previous update, introducing support for Epson printers, screen reader support in the Chromium web browser, which has been updated to version 86.0.4240.197. Additionally, this release implements a timeout that would hide messages from the USB device monitor feature after 5 seconds and updates the Italian, Norwegian, and Slovak language translations. Several bugs were squashed as well to make the PulseAudio sound system work in stereo, address visual artifacts in Chromium’s Google Maps 3D view and fix video playback lockup issues, and improve setting of passwords in the startup wizard when changing the language.
