News: Linuxmce 0810 Final is released
« 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

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.
http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11776.0.html
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:
http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,11909.0.html

B.

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.

I have been curious for years. What is a wombi, and why would you roll it?

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.
