At last the update we have all been waiting for is out

Sadly it looks like the website has already crashed under the load of everyone trying to get it

Oh well I will try again later hopefully I will be able to download it and try it out over the weekend.

Thanks you everyone who worked to bring us this update.

@All

Believe me that an incredible amount of efforts have been done by Hyperion/OS4 team/ACube to make this a reality.
They deserve a lot of respect...

A special thank to all translators who are still onboard. Special greetings to everyone.

Just the MySQL database.

If the website was down, you would not get the MySQL error message.

It would be nice though to have some alternatives places to download from. Hyperions homepage will be overcrowded for a while..
