Hello,

In the past week we’ve released 12 updated JumpBoxes and we’re now almost complete with the transition to the new JumpBox Platform 1.1. At this point everything except the JumpBoxes for TWiki and OpenLDAP have been updated. Those two should follow later this week.

This 1.1 platform update is a very important one and is the foundation that will allow us to deliver a number of interesting capabilities in the coming months. The first new capability was introduced last week with the ability to run a select set of JumpBoxes on Amazon EC2. We’ve now published a tutorial on our blog that will walk you through the process of getting a JumpBox running on the Amazon service. We currently have JumpBoxes for MediaWiki, Wordpress, Movable Type and Bugzilla available as public AMIs for the service. AMIs for the full collection of JumpBoxes will be included in JumpBox Open Plus and Premium subscriptions shortly after we complete updating everything to the new 1.1 platform.

Of additional note: the newly updated JumpBox blog is now running on a JumpBox for Wordpress using Amazon EC2 as a hosting platform. EC2 has some limitations as a hosting service but it’s a very convenient way to get a JumpBox running on the internet and we’ve been able to take advantage of JumpBox platform features like S3 backups to work around some of the limitations of EC2. We’ll be sharing more of our experiences in this area along with additional tips on running JumpBoxes in EC2 on the new blog. Subscribing to the blog is highly recommended if you want to learn how to maximize the value of using JumpBox.

Updated Production JumpBoxes

For all of these the only change is the update to the new JumpBox Platform.

  • JumpBox for Trac 1.1.0 (Download)

    Updated to the JumpBox Platform 1.1. This JumpBox still includes Trac 0.10.4. The Trac project has made 0.11.0 the new stable release and we will be issuing a new build of the JumpBox in a few weeks to support that version. If you’re interested in getting that new version it’s highly recommended that you first update to this new platform 1.1 based release.

  • JumpBox for Silverstripe 1.1.0 (Download)

    Updated to the 1.1 JumpBox Platform and Silverstripe 2.2.2. This release of Silverstripe is much improved over the previous releases with a more polished UI and a little more functionality out of the box. Silverstripe is intended to be used a little differently than the more popular CMS systems like Joomla and Drupal. Where those systems are intended to allow you to create the entire site online, Silverstripe is geared toward allowing non-technical users to edit the content of a site that’s been created by a separate web designer.
