This version has been released on Thursday, August 1, 2019.
This version is considered a patch/maintenance release. Though it is labeled a maintenance release, there are lot of exciting additions and adjustments that have been made! For starters, after supporting php7.3 in Debian 10 installs, we have tested across the board and are happy to now support php7.3 on all our supported OS/Distro. No worries on how to upgrade, our updater will handle all of this for you! Additionally we have added in a couple of new features and an application, which application you ask? Why, TheLounge of course! It’s been requested for a long while and we’re happy to now have it included in the lineup. New features include the ability to block public trackers on the fly! That’s right, you can now allow or deny public trackers by running
qb tracker [enable/disable] public. This command will stage the necessary edits to your hosts configuration to do the blocking and/or unblocking.
Of course, there are a lot of additional fixes and adjustments that have gone into this update. Some of which revolved around applications updating their required dependencies and/or certain dependencies within php7.2/7.3 have been deprecated. As per the usual, check out the changelog below to see more!
