QuickBox Pro v2.3.8

Originally published at: https://quickbox.io/changelogs/quickbox-pro-v2-3-8/

This version has been released on Monday, December 14, 2020.

This version is considered a maintenance/enhancement release. Along with some adjustments and minor fixes, this release contains some long awaited and much requested applications! I’m talking Duplicati, Requestrr, and xTeVe!

  • Duplicati: Duplicati is a free, open source, backup client that securely stores encrypted, incremental, compressed backups on cloud storage services and remote file servers. It can works with Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google Drive, FTP, SSH/SFTP, WebDAV, and many more.
  • Requestrr: Requestrr is a Discord chatbot used to simplify using services like Sonarr/Radarr/Ombi via the use of chat! All the users of your Discord Server can request for adding new content and get notified when available.
  • xTeVe: XTeVe is an application that simulates a TV tuner, it allows you to have IPTV channels via Plex or Emby. xTeVe can merge multiple M3U and XMLTV files, and send it to your preferred Media Center.

We’ll additionally be adding and updating our Knowledge Base to include more details on these apps, along with a complete restructure of the current Knowledge Base on all apps to usher in a better delivery of information. It’s a long work in progress but we are being as detailed as possible to provide clear details on install locations, configuration locations, and guides from install to setup.

We did have to push back the qb backup function for the next release as we focused heavily on finding any lingering quirks/bugs in various areas of our build files as well as including and testing these new applications. Rest assured that once it is released, it will be released in good shape with some additional features to make backing up and restoring easy.

Of course, as with every release there is more so check the changelog below and most importantly…
