eBox 0.10.99 ready to download

Hi fellow eBox users!

Your favourite development team proudly presents eBox 0.10.99. As usual, this is our beta release before 0.11.

Let us highlight some of the new features eBox ships.

The DHCP and HTTP proxy modules have been pimped out and improved to take advantage of our Ajax framework. Users and groups also joined the Ajax club and now you can list users on a cool Ajax table which is searchable.

On the system status side we have added two new reporting pages which will be very useful. A page to show disk usage information, this way you will not need to log into your machine anymore to check your disk space. Also for those who are running RAID systems, there is a new entry where you can check its status.

Do you remember the openVPN bundle you can download with your user configuration ready-to-use? Now it’s even nicer as it ships a Windows openVPN installer, turning the task of connecting remote users to your LAN into a piece of cake.

This and much more in eBox 0.10.99…
