ClearOS Professional 6.1.0 Alpha 1 Release Information

Released: July 7, 2011

If you do not want to read these release notes (you should!), please at least read the following two bullet items:

  • Please do not run this in a production environment
  • Please do not upgrade from previous versions

For those wanting to run a ClearOS Enterprise 6 test build in a real world environment, please wait for the beta releases. This alpha release is just a sneak preview intended for app developers, translators and curiosity seekers.

If you have not already done so, please review the introduction to test releases.

What's New in Alpha 1

ClearOS Marketplace by ClearCenter

The ClearOS Enterprise 6.1.0 alpha 1 release has arrived! This alpha provides a small window into what's in store for the upcoming release.

For end users, the Marketplace, the fast web interface engine and usability improvements are the highlights of this release. The Marketplace is up and running and a small set of apps can be installed.

For developers, the new ClearOS App Framework is now stable and ready for use. Whether you want to develop a free tool or a paid app, the environment for building new features for ClearOS is much improved.

For translators, the process of translating ClearOS Enterprise can get underway. Please contact if you would like to participate!

Please keep in mind that this is an alpha. Some parts of Alpha 1 are quite polished, while other parts - ahem - need work.

The virtual machine images will likely register back to the default test account. If you want to install apps from the marketplace, please run the following command: /etc/suvad.conf ; rm /var/clearos/marketplace/* -f

Sorry about that!
