Qubes Beta 3!

-->
A new ISO with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 just released Qubes Beta 3 is now available for download here.

Beta 3 fixes lots of annoying problems discovered in Beta 2 and earlier releases, and also implements a bunch of useful feature:

This includes cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 qvm-block tool and infrastructure for easy attachment of block devices to any AppVM, no matter which system VM is handling cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 actual USB controller. So, this allows to have untrusted USB domain(s), almost seamlessly integrated in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 desktop system. One can consider to use it in order to prevent various USB attacks. The next release (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 1.0) will bring this feature to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Qubes GUI manager as well, making it easy to use for non-command-line users too.

Also, we have now introduced fully automatic Qubes build system, that allows to build all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Qubes packages, and also create cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 installation ISO, with just one command. More information on this system and on how to use it can be found in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wiki.

We have also updated to Fedora 15-based template as a default. Unfortunately F16-based template would require too much work to get all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Gnome 3 stuff working correctly. (The challenge here, is that we don't run a normal Windows and Desktop manager in every domain, in order to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 VMs light weight, and so we need to sometimes work around various problems this causes...).

Finally, we have added two new Qubes-specific applications:
  • A plugin for Thunderbird (it is automatically installed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 template), that allows for one click opening of attachments in Disposable VMs, as well as one-click saving of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 attachment to select VM.
  • And something we call “split GPG”, that I will describe in a separate article later.
Those Qubes-specific applications are based on our Qubes RPC, introduced in Beta 2.

This is likely cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last release before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 “final 1.0”, that is scheduled to follow soon (TM). The only major work for 1.0 is GUI manager improvements to expose most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Qubes functionality via clickable GUI, and command line tools cleanup and documentation. Plus testing and bugfixing :)

And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next thing we will be working on will be support for HVM domains, e.g. Windows. This work is starting actually just about now, but code will be released only after Qubes 1.0.
