Release notes: UBOS Linux update 2020-02-17


##To upgrade

To be safe, first create a backup of all your sites to a suitable file, with a command such as:

  • sudo ubos-admin backup --all --backuptodirectory ~

Then, update your device:

  • sudo ubos-admin update -v

What’s new

New features

  • System logs are now written onto the UBOS Staff when booted while it is present. This makes troubleshooting of issues on devices that don’t have an associated keyboard or monitor much simpler.

  • UBOS now knows how to handle major Postgres updates automatically.

  • The Storj decentralized storage platform is now available on the UBOS “yellow” release channel. Storj provides functionality similar to Amazon Web Services’ S3, but instead of sending your data to somebody else’s cloud, Storj breaks it down into small, encrypted pieces and stores them on computers owned by users like you. You can also offer part of your own disk to other users, all at prices that are lower than S3. For details, see How to use Storj/Tardigrade on UBOS. (Feedback appreciated!)

Notable new packages:

  • Arduino command-line tools
  • Platform.io command-line tools

Package upgrades:

Over 600 packages were upgraded.
