Distro Update: eBox 0.12

The eBox development team has announced an update to the eBox platform. eBox is a comprehensive Linux-based (server) distribution that provides a wide range of network services – “network gateway to communication center and file management”.

The latest update – eBox 0.12, comes with the usual set of bug fixes and some new features. Here’s part of the update announcement:

This release brings a lot of bug fixes to increase the stability and reliability that we all expect from such a product. However, you will find more than bug fixes in this release. We have made some changes to the UI of several modules: mail, maifilter and openVPN. We have worked on reducing the memory footprint and increasing the performance, and much more. As usual you can take a deeper look at the change log below.

The packages are available in our development branch in launchpad, although they will make it to our stable branch after we get some feedback from our users -yes, that’s you, and you too. Let’s cut to the chase, to install these packages you will have to add this apt source:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox-unstable/ubuntu hardy main

For those of you who love bleeding edge stuff, I have great news. We already have working packages of eBox for Intrepid. If you are up for it, just add this source to your Intrepid installation:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ebox-unstable/ubuntu intrepid main
