Calamares 3.1.2 is out

The Calamares team is happy to announce the immediate availability of Calamares 3.1.2, a bugfix-and-translations release in the 3.1 series.

Calamares is a distribution-independent system installer, with an advanced partitioning feature for both manual and automated partitioning operations. Calamares is designed to be customizable by distribution maintainers without need for cumbersome patching, thanks to third party branding and external modules support.

Calamares Site Certificate Updated

The expired SSL certificate for calamares.io (this website) has been replaced by a Lets Encrypt certificate. I am also setting up certbot to automatically renew the certificate – that should have been done earlier. No systems were affected during this time, only visitors to the website.

Calamares Site Certificate

The SSL certificate for calamares.io (this website) has expired. It was valid to 2017-07-16 (July 16th, 2017). Due to, well, human nature, I didn’t think to renew the certificate until I was halfway up a mountain in Spain. The view is great, but connectivity not so much. The certificate-is-expired situation is expected to last no more than two weeks, but until then SSL certificate warnings will be the norm. I’d also suggest not downloading things from a site with an expired SSL certificate. Use the Github releases page to obtain tarballs instead.
