UBCD V5.2.0 is available for download

UBCD V5.2 is out after a number of test releases.

The major change in this release is putting FDUBCD and DOSAPPS on a 16MB superfloppy image. Hopefully this will enable FDUBCD to work on even more systems under both syslinux/memdisk and grub4dos.

As usual, all included apps have been updated where possible.

UBCD V5.1 available for download

UBCD V5.1 is finally out after a number of test releases. Along with the usual updates, the major change in this version is shifting the FDUBCD boot image and the associated DOS CAB files into its own ISO image, which is then launched using memdisk's CDROM emulation. This helps FDUBCD work on more systems, where previously issues may be encountered on systems with physical CDROM drives that are not supported by the DOS CDROM driver.... read more

UBCD V5.0.3 is available for download

UBCD V5.0.3 is out. It ties up a few loose ends remaining in V5.0.2. If you already have UBCD V5.0.2, you can download a small patch file (2MB) instead of the full ISO image. This is probably going to be the last release for the V5.0.x series. Work will begin soon on V5.1 (alpha).

UBCD V5.0 is available for download

After numerous false starts and even more betas, UBCD V5.0 is finally out. This release involves a major reorganization to the directory structure to achieve better isolation of UBCD-related files, as well as the addition/updates/removal of many apps in UBCD. It also includes Parted Magic for more reliable access to NTFS filesystems and USB storage devices.

This new release would not be possible without the contribution of as702, who single-handedly remade the UBCD FreeDOS boot disk, and IceCube, who spearheaded grub4dos integration, antivirus database updates scripts, additional Parted Magic modules and contributed in many other areas. My thanks also go out to neoy, who made a sparkling new logo, icon and button for the project. So go ahead and download the new version! ... read more

UBCD V5.0b5 available for testing

For those of you who have been waiting, I apologise that the next release of UBCD is taking so long. There was supposed to be V4.2, but that got scrapped. Then V5.0 went through a couple of generations, but with the support of new developers (as702 and IceCube), I think it was worth all the trouble. Anyway, the mainline release is not available yet, but for those of you living on the cutting age, you can download V5.0b5 using BitTorrent and help us test it out:... read more
