We are proud to announce that Xibo version 1.2.3 (Codename “Biela”) has arrived and is available for download. This is the a bug fix release in this legacy series of Xibo and we recommend that everyone still using 1.2 series upgrade. This release fixes a security issue in the server component.
We are proud to announce that Xibo version 1.4.1 (Codename “Brorsen”) has arrived and is available for download. This is the first bug fix release in this stable series of Xibo and we recommend that everyone upgrade.
Among other things this release addresses the issues with text scaling that have been present since the start of this project. Xibo will now perfectly scale text between the layout designer and multiple different screen resolutions.
The Xibo Project recently announced that we were opening a private BETA for a “Xibo for Android” application. This has lead to some confusion, which was never our intention. Please be assured that the Xibo Project will always remain open source!
We are committed to keeping the following open and free for everyone:
Xibo CMS (Xibo Server)
Xibo Windows Client
Xibo Ubuntu Python Client
Launchpad Answers Support Forum
Xibo Wiki and Manual
The Xibo for Android application will provide our users the extra capability of running an Android digital signage player. This player will communicate with the free Xibo CMS in the same manner as the other two display clients. The principle reason this player (and only this player) will be commercial is so that we can continue to finance and support the development of the open source solution.
If anyone needs further clarification, please do contact us!
The Xibo project has been developed and supported over the years by a small part time team in the UK who are committed to providing a full featured, free signage solution for everyone. In recent months we have taken the difficult decision of writing a client for Xibo which will be commercially available from our sponsor, Spring Signage.
We took this decision so that Spring Signage and the Xibo Developers could continue to finance and provide the high levels of support the project requires as grows, and devote more time to improving the Xibo CMS, two clients and API.
We are proud to announce that Xibo version 1.4.0 (Codename “Brorsen”) has arrived and is available for download. This is the first release in a new stable series of Xibo and we recommend that everyone upgrade.
