Title: News: Linuxmce 0810 Final is released
Post by: bongowongo on September 12, 2011, 08:07:53 am
Dear LinuxMCE community,

Open up some champagne because have we got some news for you!

We proudly want to bring you the following:

On 09-10-11 at 20:19 the LinuxMCE-8.10-final.iso was born.
She weighs about 3.3 gb and you can download her by clicking the following link:
http://linuxmce.iptp.org/release/LinuxMCE-8.10-final.iso (http://linuxmce.iptp.org/release/LinuxMCE-8.10-final.iso)

Of course we want to thank and congratulate everybody involved, the developers for getting it released and the community for helping to sift out the last bugs.

Thank you very much!

When you finished your glass let's get down back to business.

Where do we go from here?

Can I still report bugs for 0810?
Please, report bugs for 0810, so we can maintain it.

What will the next version be based on?
We are working hard on the beta of LinuxMCE 1004

Will there be an upgrade from 0810 to 1004?
It has been done, but not been documented. If you want to help and try to write a wiki about it, please do.
Please ask for guidance in the forum and irc.

What other news have you got?
Well we can report that golgoj4 & friends have been working fanatically on a new orbiter based on QT.

Please check out his youtube video in the forum post to be dazzled

Also a wiki workgroup has been founded, to re-invent our linuxmce wiki
This workgroup is mainly for people who want to contribute but do not have the development skills, but have some common sense to help us re-organise the wiki.
Check their forum post here:

p.s.
Sorry for waiting 2 days to bring you this news, but I was away for business. Poor excuse and I will punish myself for it. But maybe this news can help you get rid of these Monday Morning Blues.

haha...Wombi for Wombat, Roller for Steamroller... I needed a handle for a Red Alert account about a thousand years ago and that was the best I could come up with. Kinda stuck ;)

Great stuff!

Sorry, but is there a MD5sum somewhere?  I've checked around but haven't found one.

Cheers.

Kudo's to the team.  Master guru's all.

As a lot of the 0810 fixes also applied to 1004, does this mean there will be a rapid update to 1004-LTS ?

1004 packages have been updated constantly. However, each time a build completes, ALL packages in the repo are updated. This will stay that way until a beta is reached.

Should I reinstall or will a doing an update and then upgrade be enough? (I've been running the RC...well, I have the RC installed...I don't have a working MD yet)

An update+upgrade will get you the lasted 810 packages.

Installed for the first time in around a year using this DVD. Just been stuck with a beta from last year.

Smoothest installation ever. Mostly detected and setup automatically. I was expecting a challenge but was amazed how it all just worked.

Devs and community you are the best.

If I'm correct, the underlying system is Kubuntu 8.10, which have been dead version for a year now ...

You are right, it is mainly because of a long release cycle due to little human resource available.
It is possible to try the 1004 alpha, but that is an alpha of course. Works quite well for some, but you need some knowhow.
