VB 2.0 ISO Updating?
I noticed that the V2.0 ISO seems to get updated with no changelog ... what exactly gets done during these updates?
The latest version of VortexBox is 2.0 (updated 04/02/2012)
VortexBox 2.0 - November 08 2011
Logitech Media Server 7.7.0 pre installed and configured (replaces SqueezeBox Server)
Based on Fedora 16 for improved hardware support
Better error checking for USB backup
New versions of mpd and other core components
Many other fixes and updates
The April 2, 2012 version of the VB 2.0 ISO includes updates to packages from the VortexBox, ATrpms, and Fedora repositories, including the vortexbox, vortexbox-GUI, and logitechmediaserver packages.
Users have asked for version numbers for the new ISOs (2.0.1, etc.), as well as Changelogs, but Andrew has chosen not to do this.
Regardless of which version of the ISO you start with, an upgrade (via the VB GUI or via "yum clean all; yum update" from the command line) will leave you with the same set of packages installed on your VB.
The ISO has just changed.

Like the other users, I STRONGLY support VortexBox version numbers, meaningful change logs, and support in the full spirit of open source.
Crap that means maybe I have to down load the darn iso again after having downloaded it last night...
MD5 (vortexbox-1.10.iso) = 386fa9cb2eaa447ffbf346297cf729d7
MD5 (vortexbox-2.0.1.iso) = 6b571a885ad18faaf3aa9aa0ca254eb2
MD5 (vortexbox-2.0.2.iso) = 9e10d9df99f3a43e80f1944f5707baa7 <- yesterdays d/l and now the checksum is changed on the site I cant tell if it good or now as the download takes so long...ill preserve this 5/22 md5 here just in case .... a62ce18406bcab7604b1fb6f4b075cef
MD5 (vortexbox-2.0.iso) = f95e79cc11bee9080987c387f8cd49e4
Andrew, please do something about this...versioning if part and parcel of software lifecycles ... I dont see why this is not done.
I have never been able to get the original version 2 iso to install on any of my hardware... 1.10 runs fine. maybe this one will work...
I hope raided systems are supported now at new install for at least 3 disks...even though I would like to see better options in this respect to say supporting software raid 5 up to maybe 5-6 disks and even other raid options
VB is a great product but there are still some refinements needed to help the linux layperson ... Thanks Andrew and the team... Ron to as I know you are always answering so many questions here too, not just mine :P
The install options for the latest ISO are no different; the packages that are installed have been updated to the latest versions.
I agree...proper versioning is a must. Even if it is a simple update to just the install packages. Why bother with the confusion? Really bizarre not to, especially for new users.
