We are excited to announce the release of Ubuntu CE v2.0 (Edgy). We will continue to support Ubuntu CE v1.x (Dapper) for as long as it is supported by Ubuntu. It will be periodically updated with bug fixes and updates to the Dansguardian GUI and the Ubuntu CE Installer. We will, however, be focusing all new development towards Ubuntu CE v2.x (Edgy). The Ubuntu CE v2.x (Edgy) branch will continue until the release of Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn). At that point will begin work on Ubuntu CE v3.0 (Feisty).

Ubuntu CE v2.0 (Edgy) comes with all of the features from Ubuntu CE v1.x (Dapper). It is, of course, now based on Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy). We have also implemented a better technical incorporation of the Ubuntu CE themes for this release as well as the Ubuntu CE v1.5.1 (Dapper) release.

God Bless, Jereme

I could not wait until the official release for edgy came out!

I will dowload the script to upgrade as soon as it gets uploaded.

Nice work! What kernel did you go with? Are you writing a script to convert Ubuntu Edgy to Ubuntu CE 2.0?

Let me know how the script goes.

Thanks! I went with the default Edgy kernel. I really try to stay as close to the default Ubuntu stuff as possible. This helps reduce issues.

There is a convert_me script available for Edgy. You can get it on the Edgy Download page.

Someone has hacked the page linked to Ubuntu CE 1.5.1

When I went to the link I couldn't find the script. Where do I look? All I saw at that link was a list of the various forums for Ubuntu.
I figured out what was wrong. When I clicked on the link it was linking me to http://ubuntuforums.org/www.mirror.christianubuntu.com
For some reason it is adding http://ubuntuforums.org/ to the front of the link.

Which page are you talking about? If it is the link above, it was just a simple mistake when creating the link.

I ran the script. I can't tell any difference yet. Of course I was already running Edgy:) It did update a few things though.

Ubuntu CE v2.0 (Edgy) is really just Edgy with some precustomized tweaks geared towards Christians. The convert_me script will basically install the apps that comes with CE and do some configuration changes to your system. The biggest difference is the fact that dansguardian web content filtering should now be installed on your system. You can test this by trying to go to www.porn.com . If it is working then you will be blocked from the site. The filtering also comes with a GUI to make it easier to configure. You can check the features list on the project page to see some of the other differences.

Oh, I just realized that you may have meant that you did not see any difference between Ubuntu CE v1.5.1 (Dapper) and Ubuntu CE v2.0 (Edgy) if that is the case then you are right. Not really any difference except that one is based on Dapper and one is based on Edgy.

I just used the script last night. I like the new splash screen and the gVerse program looks better.

OK, When I clicked on that link I got some kind of cartoon that seemed a little irreverent to say the least.

Jereme,
Thanks so much for this project. Can I upgrade from CE 1.5 to 2 via Synaptic?

Do I need Gnome for any of the CE apps, or will Xfce be OK?

Yeah, that was my www.WhatWouldJesusDownload.com site. I feature Faith Mouse cartoons on the main page. They are sometimes a little over the top, but not like that one was. I have fielded some complaints already. The artist has already pulled the cartoon so hopefully he got the message. He is a man of faith, but sometimes I just don't quite get his cartoons. Usually if you are following the "story line" they make sense, but when out of context it is very difficult.

Theoretically yes, however, I have not yet been successful in my testing. Now this is not necessarily an Ubuntu CE issue. Many users of Dapper have had issues with upgrading to Edgy. In fact I have never been fully successful when upgrading from one Ubuntu release to another. I just switched my personal laptop from Ubuntu CE v1.5 to Ubuntu CE v2.0. I made a copy of all my data onto an external hard drive and did a fresh install. It was very easy to get my laptop tweaked the way I like it with Automatix. So I would not recommend doing a dist-upgrade unless you are ok with the possibility that you may end up having to do a fresh install. I would absolutely be sure to make a backup of everything first.

Well Ubuntu CE is focused on Gnome, but I believe everything should work fine with Xfce. I have not tested it, so you may find a few things like menu items missing.

Thanks, Jereme

Jereme,
Thanks. The specific issue I'm concerned about is my Windows XP virtual machine. I would not want to have to rebuild the VM with a new install. Upgrading allows me to avoid that (theoretically). Is there anyone out there that did this (upgrade from 1.5CE to 2.0CE with a Windows XP VM)?
Thanks again,
Craig

So you are running a VM of Ubuntu CE with XP as the host? Depending on which program you are doing this with, it should work fine (I personally haven't tried it, so it may or may not work).

I think that he is running XP with Ubuntu as the host.

But I'm pretty sure that if you run the conversion it should be okay.
