Hot on the heels of beta 5, here is beta 6 already. It was intended only as a bug fix release, but those bugs got squashed faster than expected, and so UBOS also got a few new features while we were at it.
Here are the highlights:
It’s hard to believe, but $5 buys you a gigahertz processor, half a gig of RAM, HDMI video and lots of programmable I/O pins; in other words, a Raspberry Pi Zero. We are proud to announce that UBOS now runs on the Raspberry Pi Zero, in addition to the original one and version 2. (Go to installation instructions.)
What else is hot in the computing universe? Docker, of course. And as of now, UBOS also runs on Docker. (Here is how.)
Want to run web applications at home, but also access them over the internet? The new UBOS network configuration
public-gatewaylets you set up your UBOS device as a router for your home network, and access your apps on your public IP address. Just say
% sudo ubos-admin setnetconfig public-gateway
And of course the usual: some packages have been upgraded, bugs have been fixed etc.
And as you probably know: to upgrade everything on your device, all you need to say is:
% sudo ubos-admin update

We’d love your feedback.
