    I came upon this thread after revisiting VortexBox after some discussions in the SqueezeBox wiki over the weekend.
    I had an older VM of VB still on my server so I fired it up, and was pretty impressed, but noticed that it is still only using Fedora 23.

    I saw in this thread a post 03-20-2017, 05:41 PM from AGILLIS stating to expect updates every 4th or 5th release.
    Since Fedora 29 was just released, just wondering if there are still plans for an update, or is VortexBox considered at end-of-life at this point?

      Co-incidentally today I was looking to upgrade Plex Server via the command line but the Plex site says "Fedora 64-bit (RPM for Fedora 24 or newer)" for the latest version 1.14.0.5470-9d51fdfaa. While I'm sure I can find an older version of Plex (although I don't know which version would be compatible with VB2.4/Fedora 23), I would be good to be current. Before obsolescence becomes a bigger issue, could we have a VB update please? Many thanks - its been a great piece of software over the years.

        I'll second the request from kingswindsor. I need to update Plex but have hit a dead-end because my Vortexbox Fedora version is too old. I love my Vortexbox and have been running it for many years, but I need a platform that will let me run some more recent app updates. Thanks!

          I hope that an updated version is still in the works. It’s been over 3 years since version 2.4 was released. I’d be happy to be a beta tester...

            Tried to install VB on a Gigabyte J3455, but it won't. Fedora 29 will install on that motherboard. So please provide the community with an updated VB version.
            Thanks for all the previous versions.

                See https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/main...=1441#post1441 - It has been coming since at least January.

                  So the current version of Plex no longer works and the current version of MakeMKV no longer works on the current VortexBox.

                  I too love my VB and hope it will continue to have a life with current software.

                  @AGILLIS: I'd be happy to pay for Premium Support. Maybe $119 for a lifetime membership?
