Following the release schedule of RetroArch we bring you updated version of Lakka, so you don’t stay behind.
As usual the release includes the latest RetroArch version at the time, which is currently 1.9.4, as well as updates to all the supported cores to the most recent versions. You can update your existing 3.0 installation using the built-in updater (except on Nintendo Switch; you have to update manually, but gavin_darkglider is working hard to implement updates for Lakka on your console). If you are using older (2.3.x) release, clean installation is recommended.
Noteworthy changes since version 3.0:
RetroArch updated to 1.9.4
Prevent unnecessary extraction to disk of compressed content files
Updated translations from Crowdin
Cores updated to their most recent versions
Added battery stats in RetroArch (for devices that have sysfs node for system battery)
Fixed safe shutdown on GPICase
Fixed audio issues on Raspberry Pi 4

Added dock support (note: the kernel will crash/lock-up if the console is put into sleep before placed into dock)
Added some cores that were not included in previous version
Many thanks to all the contributors, as well as to the whole community for your long-lasting support. We are grateful to all testers of the nighly builds for finding bugs and testing our attempts to fix them. We would not be able to support so many devices if there wasn’t you. Your feedback is always appreciated.
