ClearOS Community 6.6.0 Beta 2 Released

Posted by on in ClearFoundation

ClearOS Community 6.6.0 Beta 2 has been released!  Along with the usual round of bug fixes and enhancements, the 6.6.0 Beta 2 release introduces WPAD, QoS, YouTube School ID support, and an upgrade to the Intrusion Detection engine.  Some of the server-based apps introduced in beta 1 have been added to the ClearOS 7 roadmap.  The PHP/MySQL/Web Server stack is more modern in ClearOS 7 and these server-based apps will run better on the new platform.

Release Notes
32-bit ISO - clearos-community-6.6.0-beta-2-i386.iso  (MD5Sum)
64-bit ISO - clearos-community-6.6.0-beta-2-x86_64.iso  (MD5Sum)

In case you are wondering, yes, it was a long stretch between betas.  The source code that we use from upstream is typically updated every 6-ish months.  We prepared beta 1 at the 6-month mark, but the upstream update did not appear until 5 months later.  Upstream introduced a major version during that gap in time, so the delay was certainly understandable :-)
