General adjustments & additions

  • Version Bump set to 2.1.1
  • PHP 7 Now Standard
  • reliable php7 ppa: has been added, supplied by ondrej/php
  • removed all traces of php5

Fixes

  • [fix] QB-VERSION fix. Text now reads the actual version installed on dashboard.
  • [fix] Added better support by using unique identifiers per file needing adjustment.
  • [fix] read/write ip to console template | dynamic net adapter read
    Improved dynamic return on active net adapter | Better ip read/write to console
  • If user has multipe network adapters available grep “Link encap” with sed would fail to insert due to whitespace read issues. ifconfig sed command has been improved to only return and insert the first active adapter. in most instances, this first returned adapter is the main/active connection.
  • Removed old trace adapter that was causing new insert to fail in widgets/stat.php
  • [fix] Removed old trace adapter (enp0s20f0) that was causing new insert to fail in widgets/stat.php
    By default the scripts template implements eth0 and changes these dynamically according to the users first actively displayed network adapter. This left over test adapter was causing the stat widget to not display properly.

Improvements

  • [improvement] Issue reporting link on dashboard now points to the proper category here in the plaza.

    If user has multipe network adapters available grep “Link encap” with sed would fail to insert due to whitespace read issues. ifconfig sed command has been improved to only return and insert the first active adapter. in most instances, this first returned adapter is the main/active connection.
  • [improvement] Changed execute directories for package and plugin commands
    executables for plugin/package installers and uninstallers are now called from /usr/local/bin/
