Support to work with ISOs on the Ubuntu Releases repo (http://releases.ubuntu.com)
Other ISOs: Add list to UI, to display all the available Other ISO’s. Thanks to this, there’s also support to delete ISO’s in the list.
Preferences: Improve selection of Ubuntu Release, as well as be able to select Repository from which to Obtain the ISOs.
Unfortunately, these new changes are not yet available in the PPA given that I’m merging the TestDrive Front-end source with TestDrive’s source and new packages will become available in the next couple days to start the Testing, in preparation to the upload to Maverick. So, stay tuned.
Changes that were necessary to provide VirtualBox and Parallels Threading for the Front-end.
[kirkland] Change for KVM video mode from vmware back to cirrus.
TestDrive GTK Front-end
Threading: Support has been added for threading using VirtualBox, however, it still needs improvements. For now, it will be a little bit slow.
Other ISOs: Support for other ISO’s has been added, which means that now we are able to TestDrive ISO’s from other distributions by specifying the URL of the ISO. Also supports local ISO’s. Currently it only supports the addition of ISOs. In the near future, it will support the erasing as well.
Maverick: There’s a build now available for maverick at TestDrive PyGTK PPA (see below).
If you would like to test the new release in maverick or lucid please do the following:
