  • Future Of Vortexbox Software

    Hello all, like everyone I'm glad to see this forum back and appreciate the help I have received over the years especially from Ron Olson as I use my Vortexbox on a daily basis. I guess my question is directed at Andrew as I am curious what, if any plans there are for the Vortexbox software going foreword. We know that the current Vortexbox 2.4 software is based on Fedora 23 which is no longer supported and Andrew's web site no longer lists the Vortexbox hardware for sale.

    Also like some of you I have been using the Squeeze Community for updates to the Logitech LMS software but it seems that Clive (JackOfAll) has moved on and no longer maintains his site as the last update was over 5 months ago. This means that any LMS updates will need to come from Andrew if we want to use the Vortexbox GUI interface. I know there is a process to update the version of LMS manually but as of yet have not tried the procedure for fear of breaking something.

    So, the question is will there be a future for the Vortexbox software in the future? Can we look foreword to an updated version of LMS 7.9 now that (Logitech) Michael has released an 'official' version of LMS 7.9? I really hope the answers are yes.

    I like VB. I hope more development happens. If further development doesn't happen, it will be eclipsed by other NAS OS.

      VortexBox has been around for 8 years (as of this month) and it will be around for a long time. We have a very recent version of LMS in our VortexBox repo and we will continue to update it as well as the other packages.

      We will move to a new version of Fedora at some point. They release one every 6 months we don't need to pick up each one. We usually go to every 4th or 5th release.

        This is great news for those of us that rely on the Vortexbox software. I'm looking foreword to a long and great future for the Vortexbox software and can't wait for future updates.

        Thanks, Bill
