so it looks like the new raspian doesn't require root for gpio access
anyone try it out yet?

@monteslu yes, I've used it. The last few versions of Raspbian Wheezy have had it, but it looks like the information was only added to the release notes for Raspbian Jessie. It works when the files at /sys/class/gpio are used for gpio and the timing is very tricky when exporting the gpios.

I'm pretty certain raspi-io still needs to be run as root because of the configuration calls made to wiring pi for some other stuff
