We’ve recently added a few titles to the Ubuntu Software Center and have been hard at work on getting more diverse applications landed there. BEEP! by Big Fat Alien and Heileen from Hanako Games have recently landed in the Software Center.

BEEP!

BEEP! by Big Fat Alien allows the player to take control of a “precision robot vehicle” to explore a diverse system of planets and uncover their terrible fate. BEEP! has been a rather popular download since it hit the Ubuntu Software Center.

Kiaran of Big Fat Alien wrote up a stellar blog post about the Software Center and his experience in submitting an application using the MyApps portal currently in beta.

Check out the trailer.

Now fire up the Ubuntu Software Center and buy it today!

Heileen

The Ubuntu Software Center’s newest addition is Heileen from Hanako Games. This is a anime adventure game where you guide a young woman through her adventures in exploring the New World. You must solve puzzles and explore the surroundings in order to proceed through the game.

This game does not have a trailer, but you can view screenshots at the Hanako Games website.

Today we are announcing the Landscape Dedicated Server Edition — a stand alone version of Landscape that users can install on-site giving them complete control of their Ubuntu environment. This is one of our most requested features so we modified the Hosted version of landscape, keeping all the management, auditing and monitoring features, packaging it as a software appliance you install on your systems. Now Landscape can operate locally so all your information transfers over your local network and all system configuration, policies and profiles are stored on your infrastructure.

New features available with the Dedicated Server and Hosted edition in the October release include:

  • Manage your Cloud and physical systems in one console – including server, desktop and Amazon EC2 Cloud instances.
  • Scheduled package updates – Now you can schedule package updates and machine restarts for maintenance windows or when network usage is low minimizing the impact to your users.
  • Administrator Delegation – Group your systems to meet your needs then assign permissions to different administrators enforcing work rules and enhancing security.

To be the first to know about availability of the Landscape Server, get informed about upcoming Webinars and download the brochure.

Of course we will continue to offer the Hosted version of Landscape along side the Dedicated Server giving users a choice in how they want to manage their Ubuntu systems. All the new features mentioned above are planned to be available in October when we release the next major update of Landscape and Ubuntu Karmic Koala. The Landscape Dedicated Server is available for order now, but installation will not be available until late September / early October.
