After many months of hard work, I'm pleased to announce the immediate availability of UberStudent 2.0.4!
As many are already aware, Linux desktop environments have undergone a period of significant change since UberStudent 1.0 was released. Gnome took a hard turn toward the tablet market, injecting much discontentedness among users, a few forks, and a few new projects, only one which is mature, Unity, which has both its fans and haters (I myself dislike it). And it's not just Linux. Microsoft introduced it's own redefined desktop, Windows 8. A lot of heads are still shaking at it all. UberStudent 2.0.4 retains a traditional desktop environment by choice. Both XFCE and MATE are boot options, with XFCE the default.
You've certainly noticed the redesigned UberStudent website. During the last two years I was able to acquire uberstudent.com and uberstudent.net to round out uberstudent.org. The plan is to use .com for the main site and promotion, .org for development, and .net for repositories. The .com site is built on Drupal. The former Moodle site produced needless barriers to users, since Moodle never seemed to consistently handle user self-registration. The Help link here at the Drupal site goes to phpBB-based forums. A bridge module enables you to register once at either the forums or the Drupal site--one registration for both areas of the site. I'll of course make regular rounds at the forums. I'm currently exploring my best options to create a section of the site for how-tos and such. I'm pretty pleased with Drupal, so far.
