    Upcoming 7.7

    ClearOS 7.7 is nearing completion. We are experiencing some delays today while the mirrors catch up so please bear with us.

    One of the more significant changes we hope to make with this version is a merger with the upstream kernel. This will mean that drivers which access the ABI will now be compatible with the upstream ABI such that drivers built for RHEL/CentOS should now be compatible. We will need to beta this.

    We also want to update the SDN version to 1.4 which will more easily flow work done on paid packages and packages that are free or included with subscription but that are in the paid repositories. We will also need to test this.

    There are a bunch of other improvements coming from upstream as well as new applications from ClearCenter and ClearFoundation.

    UPSTREAM:
    - Live kernel patching is now supported via kpatch. We hope to highlight this and demonstrate how it works in the near future so that you won't have to restart your servers in order to perform kernel updates
    - More drivers and hardware support

    CLEARFOUNDATION/CLEARCENTER
    - Within the next few weeks/months we will be rolling out a lot of storage-centric updates including Storage Manager improvements, ClearSHARE phase 1, Sia, and ClearCLOUD

    I'll have our web team look at this soon. About 40 hours from now. Sorry for the bad experience, As mentioned on the weekly call, we will have a solution soon to the whole forum experience.

    Checking...

  • mirrorlist and tracker should be fixed. I also found a mistake on the chaining that should be fixed site wide. The only ones left (I'm aware of) is the demo servers. The engineer that manages those is still sick but should have them fixed in the next few days.

    Any more to report that I've missed? I've automated the distribution of certificates so that they should deploy automatically for each future renewal. We'll see how these automated processes work at the next renewal.

    You should have an ACK with the OFFER. The ACK is a message from the client device that it has received the OFFER and accepted it. For example:

    Sep 6 05:32:41 www1 dnsmasq-dhcp[2877]: DHCPDISCOVER(enp2s0f1) d4:63:f6:46:f8:72
    Sep 6 05:32:41 www1 dnsmasq-dhcp[2877]: DHCPOFFER(enp2s0f1) 10.2.3.164 d4:63:f6:46:f8:72
    Sep 6 05:32:41 www1 dnsmasq-dhcp[2877]: DHCPREQUEST(enp2s0f1) 10.2.3.164 d4:63:f6:46:f8:72
    Sep 6 05:32:41 www1 dnsmasq-dhcp[2877]: DHCPACK(enp2s0f1) 10.2.3.164 d4:63:f6:46:f8:72

    Once the ACK is received, it will be listed in the database.

    Cockpit works today on ClearOS 7 but it should only be used experimentally because it installs NetworkManager which is notorious for breaking things with Webconfig. In 8 we are incorporating network manager because it gives us some wireless and 3g/4g/5g libraries that we need to pursue wireless wan support. So we will address the stability of Network Manager at this time.

    Sorry your bio rhythm is messed up. I have to deal with seasonal depression so my happy light helps keep me well adjusted.

    Thanks for working on the Dutch translations for Kopano. If other community members want to help out, just ping Marcel or me and we can get you the files (its not a lot but it all helps).

    We did make some good progress on ClearSHARE this week but there is still a bug preventing the beta release. Our dev team ran into a critical blocker to how we were integrating Webconfig and Cockpit. I think I found a way to solve that though.

    We've had to change out our certificates. Because of this some ancillary sites may show errors. If you have an issue, please restart your browser or try the URL in a different browser. If you have an error, please report it here (preferred) or email the ClearCenter support to report the issue.
