With the impending release of the next long term support version of Ubuntu looming just around the corner, I’ve started to worry that people might get mixed up with what version of Ubuntu the articles on the site were made for and have been tested with.
Rather than me having to write the release version on all my tutorials etc., I thought I might be better off adding some new categories to the site then editing all the past articles to include the new links. This should make it a lot easier for people trying to find articles and tutorials for the version of Ubuntu that they’re running.
This will be even more important after the release of Hardy Heron, as the underlying technologies of GNU/Linux are starting to change dramatically and even minor tutorials will eventually become incorrect and obsolete.
I’ve currently added two new categories to the site..
Dapper Drake +
Hardy Heron +
All the Articles that have been posted up until now, will just be put in the Dapper Drake + category. The tutorials should still work for all the Ubuntu releases up to Hardy anyway, so I don’t really see the point in dividing them all up.
Any Articles written after the day this post is put online, will be split up into release sub categories within Hardy Heron +, such as..
Hardy Heron +
….Hardy Heron +1 – The version released after Hardy
….Hardy Heron +2 – The version after that
….Hardy Heron +3 – Etc.
I’ll add the categories for the later releases when I find out the names that they’ll be using. All posts for the later releases will also show up in the Hardy Heron + page.
If anyone has any useful idea’s for the site such as this one, please feel free to run it by me. All suggestions are welcome and credit will be given 🙂
