UBOS is a new Linux distro that aims to make it 10x easier to run server-side apps for yourself, or for your family, on hardware you own. It does by providing single-command web application install, uninstall, backup/restore and systems upgrade, including all server configuration, database provisioning, data migration etc. UBOS now also provides single-command network configuration, including DHCP, mDNS, DNS, firewall, masquerading and integration with Letsencrypt.
Current supported platforms: x86, Raspberry Pi 0-3, Marvell EspressoBIN, Docker, EC2

Highlights: * It s now easy to use a separate big data disk (like an external USB disk on a Raspberry Pi, or an extra big volume on Amazon EC2). * Perform backup and system upgrade in a single step. * Create sites from templates files * A new command for concisely displaying the networking configuration. * Installation scriptlets in any language; there is no more need to write Perl wrappers plus the usual hundreds of package upgrades, feature improvements and bug fixes.

WiFi configuration has become really simple: save a file with your WiFi network name and credentials to your UBOS Staff USB device, and next time you boot your Raspberry Pi or PC, UBOS will automatically and securely connect it to your WiFi network. More apps: Mastodon, phpBB, River5. Also, UBOS can now easily run Bitcoin, Ethereum and Monero daemons. Support for UEFI boot. And more .,..

This release has been focused on: improving the way how UBOS is built and tested; making it possible to release app upgrades and OS upgrades independently of each other; making it easier for developers to package their applications for UBOS. There are now application examples for apps built using PHP, Python, Java, Ruby on Rails, MySQL and Postgresql.

UBOS Beta 11 is here, and we are proud to add the Marvell EspressoBIN to the list of supported devices.
Launched on Kickstarter earlier this year, the EspressoBIN is an interesting board: it doesn t have any graphics (which is fine with us because most UBOS devices are used as headless servers) but instead it has three Ethernet ports and a SATA connector. The currently available 1GB version costs only 49 on Amazon. So it s perfect for running UBOS.
We have also verified that the Raspberry Pi Zero W (the 10 version that has WiFi) also works out of the box with UBOS.

One-command installation of Nextcloud 10. One-command upgrade from ownCloud to Nextcloud, and from Nextcloud 9 to Nextcloud 10. Added some Wordpress themes and plugins.
Automatic file system snapshots protect against failing upgrades. Not that those should ever happen, but let s be safe instead of sorry.
The development of UBOS-based appliances has become simpler and more secure.
Various bug fixes and improvements.
All images for all platforms has been updated (PC, Raspberry Pi Zero/1/2/3, BeagleBone Black, Docker, Cloud, Container)

When creating a new site with ubos-admin createsite, you can now easily install several apps at the same site. For example, you could run your Wordpress blog at example.com/blog and your Nextcloud family file sharing at example.com/files. The command has been restructured to allow you to enter multiple apps.
You can now restore old backups to new apps. For example, if you d like to migrate your ownCloud installation to Nextcloud, all you need to do is to create a backup of your ownCloud site with ubos-admin backup and then tell ubos-admin restore that you d like to migrate. It s really easy.
UBOS now has the beginnings of internet protocol 6 (IPv6) support.
Various bug fixes and improvements.
