UBOS Beta 17 available

Posted in:

There is lots of new stuff in this update. But before we get there:

This is the last of the increasingly inaccurately named “beta XXX updates”. UBOS has been fairly stable for some time, and our “beta” labels are a throw-back to the past when that wasn’t necessarily true. So going forward, we will stop using the term “beta”. Instead, we will focus on the distinction between the different release channels, and at what version they are at. If you check UBOS on GitHub, you’ll see that the milestone labels have already been renamed.

Here are some of the highlights on what is new in beta (ahem!) 17, currently available on the yellow release channel only:

As UBOS gets promoted through the release channels, new features will first show up on yellow, and its documentation section, and later make it into green. That clears up some confusion where sometimes the documentation seemed to say one thing, but the software did something else: now you can refer to the documentation that goes with your release channel.

The more detailed release notes are here.

As always, we love your feedback.
