Maui 2.1 updated ISO

Maui Installation ISO has been updated to 2.1.

This mainly focuses on fixing some reported Installer issues and comes with some newer package versions, otherwise is the same as Maui 2.

 

Note to Maui 1 and Maui 2 users:
Due to Maui being a Part-Rolling distro on Xenial, updating to Maui 2.1 is not only not required nor technically correct anyway:

All versions of Maui share the same base (Xenial), so the Backports channels is the common shared source where updated packages from Maui and KDE Neon land after being tested for all Maui versions.

So if you installed from any Maui version so far and enable the Backports Channels and Update, you should have the same updated system. It is just that we release updated ISOs from time to time as a starting point, so that new users don’t need to update too many packages right from the start.

The only time you could perform a “real update” is when the base LTS changes from current 16.04 Xenial to 18.04 in the future.

    Very nice and professional of the Maui-Team to release the 2.1 with the fixed installer issues, and not to wait until next major release. Thanks very much!

    This is really unprofessional. “So if you installed from any Maui version so far and enable the Backports Channels and Update, you should have the same updated system.” No user should have enable a Backport repo in order to keep their installation up-to-date. “the Backports channels is the common shared source where updated packages from Maui and KDE Neon land after being tested for all Maui versions.” Honestly, if you release a point release of your ISO’s, the “tested” updated packages should be on the main repos, and the newest untested packages should be in the backports. Use common sense, please!

    “The only time you could perform a “real update” is when the base LTS changes from current 16.04 Xenial to 18.04 in the future.” really ? next ubuntu version is not 18.04,but 17.04,u mean that maui will never update to 17.04 when will be out ? that is disapointing ,and why is that 5.8.4 is just in the backports ? it is an LTS,so it should be in the main port,not backport,all the LTS releases has to be supported by all distros,is not obligatory with versions that are not LTS,as the 5.9 which is not an LTS,c’mon guys,get ur heads back in the game and make it right,it is a really awsome distro,so make it work from the main,not a backport

    Looks like this distro is sinking and hangin’ with the dogs near the bottom of Distrowatch’s list. I know I had several issues with it on 3 different pc’s. It is now off all of them. They need to get this thing rolling on the plus side of the techno fence or it’s life is very limited, at best!

      Hin Pinstripe,

      and thanks for your feedback!

      Life is as long as its users care for it, regardless of DW ranking.
      Since it is based on Neon, there is also an LTS lifespan for each release.
      We just had the second release (not counting the incremental 2.1), so what do you expect from Distrowatch Ranking anyway at this point, which has a 6 month average which is barely how long Maui even exists.
      As for the issues, we are doing our best to fix them all, so with the upcoming release, if you like give it anyother try and report back how we’re doing.

        I have tried installing this distro onto a Dell 13-5368 13″ laptop and everything is so Small! I am older and cannot see such fine print. Windows 10 that came on this laptop looks good and easily seen by my older eyes. HOW do I increase the size of the entire OS? I tried changing the screen res., but all it did was make smaller display squares within my screen. Why doesn’t this adjust the size perspective to the device it is being installed onto?
