This much anticipated release brings UGR closer to beta. It is imperative that anyone using UGR 0.0.1 or 0.0.2 upgrade immediately, as 0.0.X users may lose support in coming updates. Additionally, it is recommended that 0.1.0 and 0.2.0 users upgrade, as well. Centaurus includes code fixes and a new text-based plymouth theme. To maintain compatibility on all systems, it is also recommended that you update all packages at the same time as UGR using apt-get.
Thanks to Mad Atlantic's Kaelin Bougneit for helping us create a custom sound theme for UGR! Available (in part) in the ugr-sounds Launchpad repo.

For that reason, we are laying out a new roadmap and development schedule that should address several of those issues. This is still in drafting and may change.
The new release sequence is proposed as follows:
This schedule gives us the freedom to:
1.0.0 was supposed to be out today. However, there are several problems with that:

We originally started off with the name UGR/Ubuntu GNOME Remix as a temporary measure, but it has stuck. Now, we want to set in stone the official project name. If you have a launchpad account, you can vote in our poll to help us decide:
You can now install ugr via a simple shell script! Visit the install/ upgrade page for more info.
We bring you the latest version of UGR, 0.1.1 "Nebula". This version includes our UGR boot theme and a few upstream fixes in GNOME 3. Wallpapers have been delayed until 1.0.0. Installation/ Upgrade Instructions
While this is a more practical, usable, and stable system then before, it is still not intended for production use. New features include a fallback session and gnome-tweak-tool. Installation/ Upgrade Instructions
What's next? Future releases will include custom wallpaper/ boot logos, shell extensions, and themeselector.
We've added a development preview channel to our project to facilitate easier testing and code contribution. The code in dev is often more unstable than the main releases, but it's the first place to get new features and bugfixes. To install it, see the dev channel page.
