2.3.0-beta Released

We are pleased to announce the release of our first beta for the 2.3 version of Xibo. The codename for this version is “Wolf”.

14P/Wolf is a periodic comet with an orbital period of 8.74a (Julian years). Max Wolf (Heidelberg, Germany) discovered the comet on September 17, 1884. It is particularly interesting as its perihelion and orbital period change due to the influcence of Jupiter.

2.3.0-beta is a development preview only and should not be used in production. You can upgrade to this release from 1.8/2.x series.

We've addressed 19 issues in this release. Please be sure to checkout our 2.3.0-alpha release announcement where we cover the major feature changes between 2.2 and 2.3.

Download

We're making this beta available for people to try using our recommended installation method, Docker. We will be providing release files for the stable 2.3.0 release for those of you running without Docker in due course.

Future development

Our immediate development work will be to prepare a 2.3.0 release which will add more polish to all the features we've put in 2.3 so far. We will also be responding to your feedback and any bug reports.

Beyond 2.3 we've begun planning 3.0, which will focus on architecture changes, material design and later in 3.1 interactive signage.
