Could I please get some clarification? Does this mean that the original Armbian mainline build will not receive updated functionality and will require a reimage?
I'm just asking because I'm still using the original preview build posted, and want to know if I need to get a new version to be able to have a "normal" Armbian.

Current version is attached to the development branch (DEV) which will be attached to next development version, probably 4.20.y It will be receiving updates, but nobody will check them. If you want to use device, you don't want updates on development branch since they are prone to ... breaking. 

Preview can be upgraded to stable versions by switching to NEXT kernel in armbian-config. After we will release a kernel update with support for this Pinebook If you do it now (it is kernel 4.14.something), you will break the system since there is no support for this Pinebook in it.

not enabled or not tested: BT, suspend/resume, sound

There is still a lot of work to get to the pitch perfect state. Thank you for your support!

Is video acceleration really working?

Those versions supports video acceleration, sound, bluetooth, ...

Yes. It's kind of side product of my experiments and since it works quite OK, I assume not worse than older Pinebook, I made an image. For mainline version is still lots of work and rest is also an important component in development Smile

Does the Armbian installer in armbian-config work for internal memory installation for the Pinebook?

Absolutely. I have two different Pinebooks and it works on both.

Edit: 
Short video https://twitter.com/armbian/status/1065713551401254912 shows booting Pinebooks from their internal memory.

I just tried the legacy image on MicroSD. It seems to work really well. I will add that there is no installation section in Armbian Legacy's armbian-config. Legacy cannot be installed to eMMC as easily as mainline.

Both versions must/should work.

I didn't test eMMC for this latest build for 1080p with legacy kernel 3.10.y and which is a bit pointless to invest into. Others were tested many times and install is super easy. It is possible that eMMC which is in your Pinebook is not supported in the kernel. It is rare but possible.

Isn't Legacy using the same BSP kernel as the shipped KDE Neon?

You are right though. I don't see the eMMC listed with fdisk -l
Although that appears to be the issue, I don't see why that would make the whole installation section of armbian-config go missing.

I kind of wanted to dump the legacy Ambian onto the eMMC to replace KDE Neon which is useless to me, and continue to run Armbian mainline from MicroSD. This is solely because the legacy release supports BT and appears to support suspend. Besides that it's a pain because it doesn't support the newer version of ext4.

I used the installer in armbian-config last night to dump Armbian mainline on to the eMMC, using an f2fs partition.

Because the installer is what I think of as a "viral installer" it did a copy of my running copy of Armbian on MicroSD. A feature which I appreciate.
My copy is still based on the original pre-release Armbian for the 1080Pinebook.
