Download: xpud-0.9.2.iso (64MB)
We're pleased to announce the release of xPUD 0.9.2. xPUD is a minimal and fast booting Browser OS, based on Mozilla Firefox, with a web-based UI on top. This version comes with new SysTray, WebApp mode, PageCurl effect, online App Store, new File tab and more.
New SysTray and Improved Backup/Restore
We re-write the SysTray with iconified style, also provide an on-screen notification, and little tweaks of shutdown dialog.
PageCurl and WebApp mode
Plate now supports WebApp mode, that open web page directly within UI, and we're working on a window control feature called PageCurl.
Opt-Get App Store
You can install applications by using Opt-Get and the online App Store. For example if you want to have Dropbox, which is pretty neat for netbook, you can simply click on it, and it will be downloaded, installed and kept for you to use next time.
You can also pre-download opt plugins, and put them under opt/ directory of your USB drive, they'll be auto loaded while xPUD is booting.
Updated system and File tab
Based on latest Ubuntu 9.10 repository and Linux Kernel 2.6.31, xPUD 0.9.2 comes with Vietnamese support of total 15 different languages, and now we have Xorg and PCManFM built into core. The porting of ARM and MIPS architectures had also been done.
Known IssueAs a development release, this version comes with some known issues:
- Windows installer can only be installed on the first partition (C:\) without hidden partition
- Some Broadcom BCM43XX chip needs firmware, you can pre-download it by using
- Xorg in this release doesn't come with most DRI drivers, we'll provide them by Opt plugin, if it doesn't detect your screen resolution right, try
- PageCurl served only as window control button know, it will be improved in the next release

after installing skype opt I cannot run it.
clicking on the icon does nothing.
trying to lauch from the console gives the error:
error while loading shared libraries: libXv.so.1: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory
ps: i'm running xpud hdd image (added row inside grub config)
you'll need "/opt/media" as initrd from the iso image
Thanks for the helpful information. Hope to hear more from you.
add your website in
YOU ARE AWESOME !
PS: Plz add a good image viewer, a good help file, a Moovida like lite media center, Opera and Make it compleate !!!!

我又回來試 xPUD (上次試的是 0.90 & 0.91), 這次的結果很棒, 幾乎我所有的新舊機器都可以跑
1. eee pc 1000
2. Acer TravelMate C310
3. AMD Duron (應該 800 MHz)
4. HP 2133
速度也很快 (只有 HP2133 是慢慢...)
網路在下載 driver.opt 後, notebook 的有線, 無線連線啟動都OK, 但有一些奇怪的問題想請教:
1. 都用 USB 碟開機 (裝在硬碟中) 的話 (紀錄保存也存在同一 USB), 只有 HP 2133 重開後會自動回復 wireless 連線, 其它都要手動, 這是正常的嗎? (我本來以為好可惜, 都要手動 wireless 連網...雖然不是很麻煩)
2. 所以我想請教, 儲存資料是存哪些還原 (restore) 時會回復的設定?
3. (試很 ctrl-space 和亂按很多鍵後都沒找到) scim 啟動鍵是什麼? (能否加入倉頡嗎? 如果 size 不會增加很多的話)
應該也會是前幾名吧, 為了用Chrome Browser卻要
Chen -> Awesome work! Looking forward to more of xPUD.
you should consider adding emesene and calculator also to the opt-in apps :)
the left menu could be a tiny bit smaller too (or an option to change size)
some people may also like a paint program like pinta
and native lightweight office like gnumeric and abiword
also a search your files would be great
Bea fioi! Bravi
when ever i'll have spare time..
And DVB? hard to stream to and get the hardware?
I can't seem to save any settings. i try to use backup settings to mnt/sda1, 2, 3, 4 and the wifi settings don't get saved
Your system is excellent! Is it possible to have it without PageCurl function? xPUD 9.1 was very elegant in this, so I would be very happy of having 9.2 with 9.1 like shell, with no PageCurl at all. How can I get it?
