Version 1.0.3 Released

We are proud to announce the release of Xibo Version 1.0.3!

This release of the Xibo project contains 15 bug fixes and 2 feature improvements and we therefore recommend that everyone upgrade. A big thank you to all the contributors to the Xibo project, without their help and support these bugs and improvements would not be happening.

The release notes are available on our Wiki here: http://wiki.xibo.org.uk/wiki/Release_Notes:1.0.3 and you can download this release from our Launchpad project page here: https://launchpad.net/xibo/1.0/1.0.3.

Xibo Statistics

You may have noticed a new box on the sidebar today “Xibo Statistics”.

We’re very interested to know what the takeup for Xibo has been, so the next rc release of Xibo (1.0.0-rc3) will include optional anonymous statistics gathering.

If your Xibo server has access to the internet, and you choose to do so, it will report back to us once every 28 days the following information:

  • Version
  • Number of Displays Licensed

This is done in an anonymous way using a randomly generated identifier which cannot be linked to you.

We would really urge you to allow us to collect these statistics, as it will help us to target work in the future to the install base of the project.
