We’re proud to announce that UBOS is now available in its second beta release.

You can run UBOS:

[PC] [Virtual Box] [Raspberry Pi]

  • on standard PCs, as their primary operating system
  • on standard PCs and Macs, in VirtualBox
  • on your Raspberry Pi Model B and Model B+.

Get started!

Highlights

  • Many bug fixes and reliability improvements from beta 1, as to be expected.

  • UBOS has an installer that makes it easy to install UBOS on a new computer. Download the the image for a bootstick, boot in the boot stick and run ubos-install /dev/sda to install UBOS on your first hard drive. RAID1 is also no problem, simply say ubos-install /dev/sda /dev/sdb. More options are available.

  • UBOS now makes it just as easy to create TLS-secured websites as it is to create non-secure ones. Just say ubos-admin createsite --tls --selfsigned. You can also bring an official certificate.

  • Hosts running UBOS now advertise themselves on the local network using mDNS/zeroconf. This solves the problem of “but what IP address does my box have”? Look for ubos-pc.local, ubos-raspberry-pi.local etc. on your local network.

  • Many improvements that make packaging and testing apps for UBOS easier and more reliable.
