Jereme Hancock has announced the availability of Ubuntu Christian Edition 2.1: “We are pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu CE v2.1 (Edgy). The main focus of this release was to enhance the DansGuardian GUI. There have been many user requests for a more polished DansGuardian GUI with the ability to easily disable the filtering. With this release we have accomplished just that. There have also been some new program additions. This release includes the BibleMemorizer program which uses the Sword modules that come with GnomeSword.”
Ubuntu Christian Edition is a free, open source operating system geared towards Christians. It is based on the popular Ubuntu. Along with the standard Ubuntu applications, Ubuntu Christian Edition includes the best available Christian software. The latest release contains GnomeSword, a top of the line Bible study program for Linux based on the Sword Project. There are several modules installed with GnomeSword including Bibles, Commentaries, and Dictionaries. Ubuntu Christian Edition also includes fully integrated web content parental controls powered by Dansguardian. A graphical tool to adjust the parental control settings has also been developed specifically for Ubuntu Christian Edition. The goal of Ubuntu Christian Edition is not to bring Christianity to Linux but to bring Linux to Christians.
