eBox Platform 1.5 installer CD now released!

eBox Platform development team is glad to announce that the first installer CD for eBox Platform 1.5 is now available for download. Please note that eBox Platform 1.5 is a development version based on Ubuntu 10.04 and it will become eBox Platform 2.0 (next stable release of the Linux small business server) after a stabilization period. The development of eBox Platform 2.0 is now finished and from now on all the attention will be focused on testing, bugfixing and optimizing the software. These are the most relevant changes since eBox Platform 1.4 release:

  • Improved software management: the ebox-software package acts now as a installer. It also eases the process of installing, updating or deleting packages.
  • Autoconfiguration wizards integrated in the administration interface.
  • New mode for network interfaces: bridged.
  • Improved logs performance.
  • Webserver with HTTPS support.
  • New FTP module.
  • Please remember that 1.5 is a beta version and it is not intended for production environments. However, your feedback is very important to make eBox Platform 2.0 a great release – Please do not hesitate to report any issues through the eBox Support Forum or eBox Trac.
