UBOS Beta 8: incremental improvements and bug fixes


Beta 7 was a major feature release. This time around, the improvements are more incremental. Here are the highlights:

  • When creating a new site with sudo ubos-admin createsite, you can now easily install several apps at the same site. For example, you could run your Wordpress blog at example.com/blog and your Nextcloud family file sharing at example.com/files. The command has been restructured to allow you to enter multiple apps.

  • You can now restore old backups to new apps. For example, if you’d like to migrate your ownCloud installation to Nextcloud, all you need to do is to create a backup of your ownCloud site with sudo ubos-admin backup and then tell sudo ubos-admin restore that you’d like to migrate. It’s really easy.

  • UBOS now has the beginnings of internet protocol 6 (IPv6) support.

  • Various bug fixes and improvements.

These are just some of the highlights. The more detailed release notes are here.

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.
