Accelerating Development

As more schools have become involved with the switch to Ubuntu it has become clear that the lag between the weekly stable LCFG release being made and it actually becoming available for MDP users is causing many problems and extra work. To overcome this issue we have begun creating a new daily snapshot release. This is published at 08:15 each day and becomes available for MDP users almost immediately.

Although we aim to keep it in a usable state this snapshot is completely untested and unsupported. We recommend that you DO NOT use this for any important machines.

We considered providing “live” access but it’s just a bit too awkward as we have to extract a whole load of our DICE config before publishing. Live access would also expose you to a lot of profile churn and a high chance of real config problems. Hopefully a daily snapshot will help resolve the issues due to being “downstream” and up to a week behind our active development.
