Ultimate Edition 3.9

by on Apr.08, 2014, under Linux, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

Time is has never been on my side, this is no exception. I am dumping Ultimate Edition 3.9 to the public. I am not going to make a big deal about it. I have had nothing, but pretty much good feedback on it. I am not even going to spend the time updating / upgrading it. I will be doing some catch up over the next few weeks when time is availible. Let’s get UE 3.9 behind us, so I can focus on the future.

Ultimate Edition 4.2 Beta

by on Mar.30, 2014, under Linux, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition


I am relinquishing this build to the public. The more feed back you provide a better end resulting product. I find it to be pretty much flawless in design, minus a few theme issues. Your milage may very. I can not stress this enough, please provide feedback.

What is Ultimate Edition 4.2 Lite? Based on a debootstrapped Ubuntu Trust Thar tree (14.04) a Long Term Supported (LTS) release. With Mate 1.8 and many of the toys you have came to love with Ultimate Edition in the past.

Public Access: Copy or Sourceforge

Admin, Beta Testers and Donors can download it from http://testue.info/

They are the same file, just faster to download from the test server. This release HAS NOT been Repostormed yet.

This is NOT a final product, however your feedback is appriciated.

It has been built 4 times since this video was taken.

UE Love!!!

by on Mar.21, 2014, under Linux, Themes, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

I was browsing gnomelook.org and found that a user had extended the Ultimate Edition Cursor Pack and added the colors of Green and Orange. I pulled them down and extended / debianized the the Ultimate Edition Cursor Pack. I love it when a Ultimate Edition user spends the time necessary to extend a helping hand.

cursors

In the screenie above, we have alot going on. I have been extending the application repairtheme and running it against what will be Ultimate Edition 4.2′s theme a LTS (Long Term Supported) release. We will have a perfect theme, when I am done. It does have errors still remaining. I am writing code to stroke across it and clean them up as well.

You can download the debianized version from our website themelinux.com

Thanks Mark,

TheeMahn

Ultimate Edition your way!!!

by on Feb.23, 2014, under Linux, Programming, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

A new tool and a couple of domains in construction are inbound: http://www.uebuilder.com/ No, it does not just build Ultimate Edition Operating systems http://os-builder.com/ Both sites will land you at the same place. I’m currently uploading data. Please stand by.

Both domain are NOT hosted through the same company as Ultimate Edition websites are hosted through. I have deliberatly done this to curb the server load and continue to provide support for Ultimate Edition. In writing the tool, 1 user I remind you, I chewed up over a Terabyte of bandwidth. I have purchased the hosting for a year, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited storage space. I have learned over the years there is no such thing. NTL, hopefully it is there to stay. Once the tool is released, I personally look forward to seeing other people incarnation of what they feel an Operating System should be.

If you have no idea what I am talking about you can read more about the tool here. Be sure to read the whole thread, to see the tools progression.

I have full intentions of releasing Ultimate Edition 3.9 x64 built by hand and a Ultimate Edition 3.9 x86 built with this tool and 0 intervention on my part.

A new Copy for you.

by on Dec.17, 2013, under Hosting, Linux, Programming, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

Happy Holidays from the Ultimate Edition Team. First a huge thanks to Sourceforge & Baracuda Networks Copy. They have provided I’m sure into the Petabytes of traffic & remained up to the best of my knowledge. Copy is awesome. They are currently hosting 377.8 GB of Ultimate Edition Goodness, yet our usage is 156.1 GB of 1.1 Terabytes total. I have taken the time to debianize thier newest Copy application version 1.40.0196.

We are providing it for download, this isn’t even in recently released Ultimate Edition 3.8. Even though Ultimate Edition technically does not need the extra space, I am providing a referal link. This way if you have not signed up with Copy you can get an extra 5GB of space, 20 GB in total, for free!!!

New version availiable for download

Version 1.40.0196

One of the things I noticed when I downloaded the tar.gz from Copy’s website is the introduction of an arm based application. I have taken the liberty of building it into a deb as well, however I am not going to release it until I have physically ran and tested the application on the MK 809 III. The MK 809 III has not currently arrived, they have until the 19th of December to deliver. I have already built an Operating System for it I am itching to test. ;)

Release name: Linux Copy Client
Architecture: AMD64 (64 bit)
Version: 1.40.0196
Homepage: http://copy.com/
Size: 18.5 MB (18,549,584 bytes)
Download: Download

Release name: Linux Copy Client
Architecture: i386 (32 bit)
Version: 1.40.0196
Homepage: http://copy.com/
Size: 18.5 MB (18,515,496 bytes)
Download: Download

You do not get 20 GB of space until you:

  • 1. Sign up
  • 2. Verify your email address.
  • 3. Install one of the above applications

If you use Windows, iOS, Android, Mac you can get the client from the Copy website. Once you have your own account you can refer others to get both you and them an extra 5GB, what a wonderful deal for free. Just how good is Copy? I tried sharing a single Ultimate Edition ISO, I believe Ultimate Edition 2.6.8 x64 on DropBox and was shutdown the same day I uploaded it. I shared it with a few people on our forums, a small amount of traffic compared to the traffic this website sees. Have you seen how many ISO’s Copy hosts for us?

Enjoy your free webspace & Happy Holidays,

TheeMahn

Ultimate Edition 3.8

by on Dec.13, 2013, under Hosting, Linux, Programming, Themes, Ubuntu, Ultimate Edition

Ultimate Edition 3.8 has been released worldwide. The full release info can be viewed here. I am simultaneously releasing Ultimate Edition 3.9 to Admin, Beta testers & Donors. This is not a final product. My personal goal is to release Ultimate Edition 4.0 before I even begin to slow down:

The reason for the rapid succession of releases? I was and still am way behind on release cycles. No-one says that you have to upgrade. If you are happy where you are with say Ultimate Edition 3.4.2 etc. Then by all means stay there. Ultimate Edition 3.8 is not a LTS, however unlike Ultimate Edition 3.6 and Ultimate Edition 3.7 is quite stable. The release of Ultimate Edition 4.0 will be from the Saucy branch, naturally Ultimate Edition 4.1 (KDE based) also coincides with Saucy. It is at that point that I will be caught up and can return to programming. One of the nice things about Open Source is the freedom of choice.

The presure and workload on me in pushing releases has caused me to write some new software that at least partially automates my building process, at this point it is w/o error. I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing ;) Sorry about the incorrect links above, was pointed to the draft. The situation has now been rectified.

Enjoy your weekend,

TheeMahn
