This version has the same feature set as Freedom Fone v2S7.1 for Ubuntu 1204LTS.

We have had mixed success with installing v2.S.8 on computers due to issues associated with the Ubuntu 14.04LTS desktop application. If you are experiencing installation or operating problems we recommend you use v2.S.7.1 instead.
