05/14 : Site upgrade

Over the last few weeks this sites performance was not up to par. After we did a mysql version upgrade, the site performance dropped by almost 150%.

After some troubleshooting, we found that there was something in the old database that the new version of MySql must not have liked. We could not find out exactly what it was unfortunatly, so we basically rebuilt the site from sratch and created a new database. This caused us to lose all the forum data. We were able to retain everything else.

We have now locked this version of mysql via synaptic, since there is really no reason to upgrade it, and risking the performance lost again is not worth it.

05/09 : Xubuntu packages fixed

It is safe to upgrade Xubuntu Dapper packages again.
05/08 : Xubuntu updates are broken

Just a warning, do not any updates to Dapper Xubuntu until further notice. It looks like the Xubuntu packages are currently broken. I am currently looking in to when they will be fixed and will post the news here as soon as I know

05/06 : Xubuntu 6.06 Beta 2

Jani Monoses has announced the second beta release of Xubuntu 6.06 “Dapper Drake”:

“The Ubuntu / Xubuntu teams are proud to present the second beta release of Xubuntu 6.06. New since Beta 1: the artwork is more consistent, and it is going to be further polished for the release; the Xarchiver archive manager is added; several new panel plugins are added (battery, weather, xkb, verve, etc.); the XFce core components are updated to 4.4beta1 or later snapshots to fix several bugs and to add new translations.”
