Mythbuntu 14.04 Released! (Better late than never edition)

posted Apr 17, 2014, 8:09 PM by Thomas Mashos   [ updated Apr 19, 2014, 7:04 AM ]

After some last minute critical fixes and ISO respins by the release team (thanks again Infinity, we owe you and the rest of the release team a beer), the Mythbuntu team is proud to announce we have removed our socks (see relevant post) and released Mythbuntu 14.04 LTS. This is the Mythbuntu team's second LTS release and is supported until shortly after the 16.04 release.

With this release, we are providing mirroring on sponsored mirrors and torrents. It is very important to note that this release is only compatible with MythTV 0.27 systems. The MythTV component of previous Mythbuntu releases can be be upgraded to a compatible MythTV version by using the Mythbuntu Repos. For a more detailed explanation, see here.

You can get the Mythbuntu 14.04 ISO from our downloads page.

Highlights

  • MythTV 0.27 (2:0.27.0+fixes.20140324.8ee257c-0ubuntu3)
  • This is our second LTS release (the first being 12.04). See this page for more info.

Underlying system

  • Underlying Ubuntu updates are found here

MythTV

  • Recent snapshot of the MythTV 0.27 release is included (see 0.27 Release Notes)
  • Mythbuntu theme fixes

We appreciated all comments and would love to hear what you think. Please make comments to our mailing list, on the forums (with a tag indicating that this is from 14.04 or trusty), or in #ubuntu-mythtv on Freenode. As previously, if you encounter any issues with anything in this release, please file a bug using the Ubuntu bug tool (ubuntu-bug PACKAGENAME) which automatically collects logs and other important system information, or if that is not possible, directly open a ticket on Launchpad (http://bugs.launchpad.net/mythbuntu/14.04/).

Known issues

  • Upgraders should hold off until our first point (14.04.1) coming this summer. (See bugs #1307546 )
  • Don't select VNC during install. It can be activated later. (Bug #1309752)
  • If you are upgrading and want to use the HTTP Live Streaming you need to create a Streaming storage group
