Quickstart is a downloadable virtual machine, containing a pre-configured Ubuntu Linux PHP development environment. Develop and debug LAMP natively, on any computer, without hassle.
QS 0.8 includes updates and bug fixes to QS 0.7. If you're already using QS 0.7, below is a script that will make the bug fixes.
QS 0.8 was also used to make the HOWTO videos on the Quickstart YouTube channel: step debugging, performance profiling, simple email debugging, etc.
What's next for the project? Not quite sure, but I'd love some feedback on how it's being used, and what features or HOWTO videos would be useful.
I hope you find it useful, and thanks for whatever you do for open source,
