FOG 0.33 - What's coming?
[quote=“BryceZ, post: 8935, member: 2”]The testing thread is [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/bugs-in-fog-0-33.631[/url]. Feel free to jump in and give a hand, just make sure you’re not cluttering up the thread with useless questions (search before you ask).
As for a release date… when it’s ready. I know that’s not the answer most people are looking for, but it’s the truth. There are three FOG developers, each with real jobs that keep them busy. If more people help with testing then the devs can spend less of their own time tracking down bugs and more time fixing them.[/quote]
Is this still a work in progress? or is it dying?
Everything is still in development, Everyone that works on this project does it in their free time.
0.33 is a serious re-write of code so it is taking some time to complete.
I can assure the project is still in development, the developers just have lives
Have the core Fog developers thought about moving or mirroring the code repository to [url]https://github.com/[/url] ?
Github gets way more traffic than sourceforge nowadays, I think it would lessen the barrier for others to submit issues, patches, and general improvements.
Hi Devs! Firstly, let me start by saying you’ve done a fantastic job with this project. I was introduced to it about 3 months ago and I’m totally in love with it! That being said, I recently decided to give 0.33B (rev 899) a shot to check out the ext4 support along with other perks that seem to be coming along nicely. But, when I attempt to upload a ext4 image, it is still seen as ‘raw’ and sometimes doesn’t upload the partition at all (only about 914 bytes, actually). However, if I’m uploading an LVM or encrypted partition (also ‘raw’) it seems to work fine. Is this something that should not be happening with 0.33B or did I somehow b0rk the install?
Again, great work on such such an awesome project! Thank you all very much for continuing the development.
Quick update: Yes, 0.33 is still under development. Work has been stuck for a while due to the schedule of the developers and the fact that the one big remaining issue is UEFI. If anyone out there is interested in pushing things forward and has the time to spare, the devs could really use some help working out the whole UEFI booting.
Other than that, the rest is just fixing little things throughout the UI. FOG 0.33 didn’t start with a solid bug tracker, and the dev that did most of the rewrite has had to step back from the project, so there are pages that didn’t get finished but they’re not all documented in one place. So if anyone wants to systematically go through each page and track down all the little pieces that don’t load properly it would help a lot.
If I get some time today I’ll try to read back through these posts and answer individual questions that I know the answers to; like Stephen DiCato’s question about GitHub: they’re waiting for 0.33 to finish before migrating to GitHub.
Any Idea when 0.33 will be in final release?
@nicked check out link below for status of 0.33

From my knowledge it is all set and should work for all the Distro’s it nativally supports (Redhat/Centos/Fedora)([X]Ubuntu Based)
For non-standard distro’s you could get it to work, though it might take a little extra work.
Add the caveat now to Fedora 19, being that they changed the database (mysql) to mariadb. All works, but requires minor changes in the script. I’ve already created a thread pointing out the issue with Fedora 19 and a fixed tarball for it based on FOG 0.33b, though the same changes could just be made in 0.32.
