This is the first release in the 2.2 branch.  This release now adds support for Ubuntu 14.04.  This release also focuses crashes that were reported with the built-in crash reporting system.  We’ve also ripped out the gstreamer code used in the event playback and updated it with a more cross-platform friendly library.  You can expect to see more features in the event playback area in the next few releases.

In this release we no longer pull events by default, a button has been added to spool in events.  This has been added as a stop-gap to fix some server related database performance issues we are working on resolving.

As always you can download the client on our website, or run ‘sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install bluecherry-client’ on Ubuntu / Debian systems.  Optionally you can build the latest client yourself by downloading the source code here (
