Ubuntu installer slideshow preview

This is a preview of the latest version of ubiquity-slideshow, which is the slideshow you see while installing Ubuntu and some of its friends like Kubuntu and Edubuntu. Just select a flavour and enter a locale (like he or zh_HK) to test.

This should work in any modern web browser with Javascript enabled. However, the slideshows intend to be viewed with Webkit since that is the tool we use to embed HTML content in the installer. If you encounter trouble, try a browser that uses Webkit, like Chromium or Epiphany, and resize the browser to match the dimensions of the slideshow. To find the most recent content and information (and if you would like to contribute!), take a look at the project on Launchpad. You can visit our source package in Ubuntu to improve translations or report bugs.

You were probably redirected to here from the old preview page on people.ubuntu.com. I decided to move to my own web host so I could upload new slideshows more efficiently. (I have shell access here, so instead of uploading 3000 small files I can archive them, upload the archive and then extract the files on the server). Unfortunately, the way I set up the redirect from the old site to here means we lose some information: if you were pointed at a slideshow in a particular language you will need to select it again. Once you have, you can bookmark and share a link to that slideshow as usual. Sorry for the inconvenience!

These files are hosted on my personal website. Please be gentle with them :)
