Tonight (07/01/20-08/01/20) the following updated packages are being released:

  • app-base - a kludge to fix an issue caused by upgrading initscripts.
  • app-nextcloud, app-nextcloud-business, app-owncloud, app-owncloud-business - to help uninstalling.
  • nextcloud * - to 17.0
  • app-kimchi, kimchi (2.5), wok (2.5) - for some reason were sat in testing for over 2 years. Whatever, they are better than the packages which were released.
  • app-kopano-basic * - to make a more appropriate list of packages available to yum.

* = the package is also being released to Business at the same time.

Packages available for testing

  • app-network - code merge complete. Seems to work for everything except external VLANs.

    • Now allows you to set up Wireless and Cellular interfaces. You will also need app-wireless to configure a NIC as an access point. Otherwise manual configuration is then needed for WiFi and Cellular devices.
    • I've tweaked it for kernel mode PPPoE (much faster and lower resoures). For the moment we are not forcibly converting PPPoE interfaces over, but if you edit an interface it will switch to kernel mode.
    • Hides irrelevant interfaces from app-network-report such as docker0, veth* and ifb*.
    • Numerous other changes since last 2.6.0
    • Do not use the the update if you use VLAN's on external interfaces.

Unless detailed otherwise, packages available for testing can be installed with:
yum update --enablerepo=clearos-updates-testing {package-name}

Packages being worked on:

  • app-storage
  • app-sia - In theory it worked but does not. Fixes needed. I have an idea to get it working in Gateway mode but it is deathly slow.
  • app-openvpn to add three configuration parameters (client-to-client, "push block-outside-dns" and to force all traffic through the VPN). This is being worked on by an external contributor.
  • app-attack-detector to add a button beside each banned IP to you can unban it. This is being worked on by an external contributor.
  • kimchi 3.0 and wok 3.0. I've managed to build kimchi on my test server. I am waiting for a repo to be created for wok. kimchi is a great VM manager front end for KVM/libvirt.
  • app-qos/app-firewall to get QoS to work properly now we are using an upstream kernel. There are packeges in updates-testing which fix some of the issues but will not be the final release.

Last weekend clearos-release was released as a tweak was needed to build a test iso. THe change had no effect on running systems.
