UCS 5.0 Release Candidate 1

(German version below)

The second release candidate for the upcoming UCS 5.0 is ready!

With the release candidate 1 we would like to give the next impression of UCS 5, invite you to test it and hope for feedback and hints on the features that have been changed so far. This version is not suitable for productive use and an update to the later, stable release is therefore not supported!

More information about changes in UCS 5 as well as an outlook on still missing features can be found in our blog articles about UCS 5. There will also be an article about the UCS 5 release candidate soon.

The DVD ISO image for x64 systems can be downloaded from our download server.

Questions or comments about the UCS 5 rc1 are welcome in our forum. Feel free to use the tag ucs-5-beta to make your entries easier to find.

Der zweite Release Candidate für das kommende UCS 5.0 steht bereit!

Mit dem Release Candidate 1 möchten wir einen weiteren Eindruck von UCS 5 geben, zum Testen einladen und erhoffen uns Feedback und Hinweise zu den bisher geänderten Funktionen. Diese Version ist nicht für den produktiven Einsatz geeignet und ein Update auf das spätere, stabile Release wird daher nicht unterstützt!

Mehr Informationen zu Änderungen in UCS 5 sowie einem Ausblick auf noch fehlende Features finden sich in unseren Blog-Artikeln zum Thema UCS 5.

Das DVD-ISO-Image für x64-Systeme kann von unserem Download-Server heruntergeladen werden.

Fragen oder Hinweise zur UCS5-Beta können gerne in diesem Forum gestellt werden. Nutzen Sie dazu gerne das Tag ucs-5-beta, um ihre Einträger leichter auffindbar zu machen.This text will be hidden

Test App-Center seems not to work with this version.

I get following output on opening app center in umc:

Interner Server-Fehler in "appcenter/query".
Request: appcenter/query

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/base64.py", line 510, in _input_type_check
    m = memoryview(s)
TypeError: memoryview: a bytes-like object is required, not 'str'

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:
