Announcing Qubes OS Release 2!

Today we're releasing Qubes OS R2! I'm not gonna write about all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cool features in this release because you can find all this in our wiki and previous announcements (R2-beta1, R2-beta2, R2-beta3, R2-rc1, and R2-rc2). Suffice to say that we've come a long way over those 4+ years from a primitive proof of concept to a powerful desktop OS which, I believe, it is today.

One of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 biggest difficulties we have been facing with Qubes since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 very beginning, has been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 amount of this extra, not-so-exciting, not directly security-related work, but so much needed to ensure things actually work. Yet, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 line between what is, and what is not-security related, is sometimes very thin and one can easily cross it if not being careful.

It's great that we're receiving more and more community contributions. This includes not only bug fixes, but also invaluable efforts related to documentation, HCL maintenance, as well as some really non-trivial new features (advanced backups support, Debian and Arch templates, TorVM, Whonix port, etc). Thanks!

I'm also happy to announce that Caspar Bowden, a well known privacy advocate, expert on EU data protection law, member of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 board of Tor, former Microsoft Chief Privacy Adviser, etc, will be taking a role as Qubes Policy Adviser, helping us to make Qubes OS more suitable for a wider audience of people interested in privacy, and be liaising  with ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r projects that would like to build privacy services with Qubes as a base.

And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is still a lot in front of us. Using cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 obligatory car analogy, I would say Qubes OS is currently like a racing car that just went into production as a road vehicle: one hell of an engine under-cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365-hood, and powerful new technologies until now unavailable even for professional use, yet lacking leacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r interior with 12-speaker audio system, and still with a manual transmission... This is just cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 beginning for making security by isolation on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 desktop as "driveable" as a [insert your fav make of German fine cars] :)

Exciting stuff is coming next: cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Release 3 (“Odyssey”) and more, stay tuned!

Thanks to everyone who has made Qubes OS possible, as well as all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 upstream projects without which we would probably never even try this journey: Xen, Linux, Xorg, and many ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs!

I will never buy any automatic transmission crap - so please keep it as much as minimal as possible.

Great work, downloading!

I really like Qubes approach. Security by isolation is only approach which may work in current state of our digital realm. Moreover Qubes is very quickly becoming mature and usable for power users/sysadmins but I'm not sure if it ever will be usable for my mum. Anyway I must admit I'm in love with Qubes.

Thank you Joanna and Team.

You are doing amazing job!

I'm loving Qubes OS since it's first release. But in fact cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is a need for 'automatic transmission' when it comes to inexperienced users. Many friends of mine are note willing to try this system right now because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y think it's way to complex.

I guess we can manage to build a product which feels like a 'manual transmission' Audi R8 to anyone with advanced IT knowledge, but at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same time makes a simple user think that he or she is driving a A8 with all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 'make my life easier' features you can get.
