Most of our sites run on WordPress, a great framework & does a fantastic job until you introduce a loose cannon plugin. Those of you that have donated and have issues logging into the Ultimate Edition Test Server, please read this post on our forum.

I know I just released Ultimate Edition 3.7. I took advantage of the high speed internet and uploaded Ultimate Edition 3.8 Lite X64 to all 3 mirrors on the Ultimate Edition test server. Ultimate Edition 3.8 is based on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. I have pre-installled a few apps I would also like the admin, beta testers and donors to try. I told you I intend to catch up with distro releases. Your feedback is appriciated:
Notification sent to 174 user(s).
Let the testing begin. Once again enjoy your weekend,
I would like to announce the release of Ultimate Edition 3.7 a KDE release based off Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal tree.
I’m also uploading Ultimate Edition 3.8 to the Admin, donor, and beta testers website for testing.
Enjoy your weekend,
There has been a bunch of donations as of recently, I have not had time to update the list simotaniously those that had an account prior does not allow them to reset the password (because they forgot it). Moving to a new domain name I assume is where the issue resides, however those of you that had an account it is still there, provided you remember your username and password. The server has taken a serious beating clipped from the donors site, when a donor complained about the speed:
Sorry about the speed. There is 78 pages of downloads recorded.
I have purchased a year of hosting from another provider, exclusivly for Admin, beta testers and donors. I am transfering ISO’s there. They are fast, I sent an ISO from our Copy account to the new server to test the speed:
New Server Inbound
I personally would prefer to spend my time building Operating Systems or programming, however I will spend my time re-establishing and adding the new accounts to the list. On a lighter note to those of you that have an account & remember your password. I have purchased using donors money a years worth totally seperate hosting account to curb the issues with speed when downloading, this is still not currently in place. My admin or donors speak I do listen. The site http://testue.info/ is a bonus to those that have donated it is NOT a requirement that I provide to you the service, I do so solely as my way of saying thanks. Your feedback is greatly appriciated.
I typically do not work on the weekends as far as O/S releases, however I wanted to nip this in the bud. I had an interview today took a drug test and was told you are already hired if my screening goes through. Which it will I do not do drugs. Can you belive I got a hair cut to test for that? It won’t matter, I do like my beer on occasion, drugs are not my thing. That does not mean being that this is a weekend I do not upload UE 3.7 to the new hosting account to see if the donors beat it offline
If you are a donor it is in my best intrest at this point to have you contact BlackWolf let him generate a list and present it to me weeded through. I greatly apologize to both BlackWolf & the donors involved. I am super swamped and feel my #1 job should be to build O/S’s and program. I want to point this out was there a Ultimate Edition Player in UE 3.6? I am one man.
I spent the last 7 hours re-writing a mysql database to bring the Admin, Donors and beta testers site back online under a new domain name. I was beginning to believe it may have been better to just have paid the premium to Godaddy. Will I do the same thing next year? Knowing what I now know about restoring databases etc. I doubt it would take me that long if I had to do it again. We will see.
There is currently 7 new ISO’s available for download and testing. Ultimate Edition 3.7, 3.8, 4.0 & 4.1. The username and password you had from the old site is the same on the new site. Your feed back is appreciated.
I would like to have released Ultimate Edition 3.7 to you this weekend. I have alot going on as well, feedback from Ultimate Edition 3.7 has made it make a turn for yes you will wait. I have been working forward. Ultimate Edition 3.6 was downloaded 22,000 times in a week from sourceforge alone and I must honestly say my worst incarnation. There are alot of issues in what will be Ultimate Edition 3.6 to Ultimate Edition 3.9 and that is for sure. I have now found the bug / issue however I can not change it upstream.
One would like to think if you fix it here the issue is gone, not the case. It is a network based bug in resolvconf or networkmanager, not apparent other then in chroot. Once again no internet is a “Showstopper”. Massive changes between 12.04 to 13.10 (UE 4.0) which the video below demonstrates.
I have purchased a new domain for our donors after Godaddy tried to extoritionate us.
Apps to re-write and bugs to crush, I almost love my job To be honest with you, I would like to skip Ultimate Edition 3.6 straight through 3.9 and release Ultimate Edition 4.0.
I typically don’t ask for feedback in this area, unload the big guns on me. Do you know I have been told my beta’s are better then most final releases from the “others”
I wrote an article about a few programs that are "Under the hood" in virtually all versions of Ultimate Edition Linux. I have also re-uploaded Ultimate Edition 3.6 Lite x64 reduced it’s size to a CD, sorry about that & released Ultimate Edition 3.6 – The Full Monte. 57 of you got a corrupt download, you were downloading it while I was uploading it.
I have been diligently working on Ultimate Edition 3.7. I am unsure if I will have it done by this weekend, stay tuned. Those of you that are having problems installing UE 3.6 please check here first.
Ultimate Edition 3.6 Lite is final today (over 100 builds were involved). Hopefully Ultimate Edition 3.6 Full next week, Ultimate Edition 3.7 the week after. I intend to get caught up one way or the other, no promises
You can read more about the release here.
Have a good weekend,
I have taken the time to upgrade Ultimate Edition 3.4.1 to Ultimate Edition 3.4.2 x64 / x86 a Long term supported (LTS) release as well as Ultimate Edition 3.5.1 to Ultimate Edition 3.5.2 x64 / x86. This also includes Ultimate Edition 3.4.2 Lite x64 / x86. 250 to 350 upgrades & a few new apps / themes to each respectivily.
Our Ultimate Edition Copy account is officially open for business, there is over 300GB of Operating systems, themes and software availible for download, thanks to our users and Baracuda Networks the new Operating Systems are also availible on Sourceforge. I uploaded 12 ISO’s (40GB) in less then 24 hours; thanks poweruser2600 & Road Runner Ultimate
The beta of Ultimate Edition 3.6 I have fixed all issues that have been pointed out to me. I had intended to also upload it this weekend and ran short on time. Expect it sometime next week, I have a Lite version of Ultimate Edition 3.6 at CD size first time since Ultimate Edition 2.8 with a new Ultamatix brought back from the dead to grab what you may feel you need.
What is Ultimate Edition 3.6?
I built this release from the bottom up at 0 bytes, I did not use a Ubuntu Mini remix. I debootstrapped it ground up from the 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) tree. The Desktop Environment is Mate 1.6. The lite version has only the very basics. The full monte is a full featured O/S. More on that when I release it. Funny I am sitting on a UE 3.7, 3.8 and even a 4.0 based on Saucy Salamander, very unstable btw.
