The Development Team of Zentyal, the Linux small business server previously know as eBox Platform, is glad to announce that the second Zentyal 2.1 beta installer (Zentyal 2.1-1) is now available for download. This version includes all the current development improvements for Zentyal 2.2 and the first beta of the new IPsec module.
Zentyal 2.1 is a development version based on Ubuntu 10.04.2 and it will become Zentyal 2.2, next stable release, in September 2011. Until then, the Zentyal Development Team will frequently release new beta versions with new features and improvements that you can help testing. As to this version, the most relevant changes include:
The installer is available for 32 and 64 bit architectures and it is also possible to install the 2.1 packages on an existing Ubuntu Server 10.04 following the instructions of the Installation Guide. Users who already have a 2.1 installation, don’t need to use the installer, but only need to upgrade to the latest versions of all the available packages.
Please remember that 2.1 is a beta version and it is not intended for production environments. However, all beta testing help is greatly appreciated as well as bug reports, feedback and ideas that can be given through the Zentyal Forum or Zentyal Trac.
