We have released a pre-alpha version of Media Cloud 2.0. The changes since our initial release in 2009 are too numerous to list. Perhaps most noticeably, the install process has been vastly improved. Many users will be able to install Media Cloud simply by running a single script instead of having to manually configure and install numerous Perl modules.
A source distribution of this release is available on Sourceforge at the following location:
We have also put together an Ubuntu virtual machine image with Media Cloud already install. It’s available here:
This is still alpha software but we hope this release provides an easier and more stable alternative to installing Media Cloud from source control.
