We've been quiet the past couple months on the front page. I just wanted to assure the community that this is not because we are missing in action but rather missing because of action. There is a lot to do with the upcoming release of ClearOS 7 beta and we don't have actual dates yet because a lot of things will converge at the same time. If you are interested in helping with the ClearOS 7 release, please contact us. Even helping to moderate the forums, submitting new howtos and source code for 6 modules, reporting bugs, or the occasional "You're doing a great job!" is quite useful. Thanks for all you do to help the community. We know that ClearOS 7 will be better than ever and hope it is worthy of our friends!
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 was released today. Here is the press release.

We haven't being doing a great job at communicating the roadmap for ClearOS, so here's a quick update on what is in store for next three months! A follow-up blog post will detail some of the medium and long term roadmap goals (more/better reports, IPv6, etc.).
The following apps are in public beta right now -- head on over to the developer forums for details:
- Software RAID Manager
- VLAN support
- Amazon EC2 Support
In addition, a few apps are nearing completion or waiting on the ClearOS 6.5 testing phase (which will begin in August):
- Mail Archive (paid app)
- OwnCloud (Tim app)
Under the hood, a new engine for supporting web applications (WordPress, Joomla, SugarCRM, etc.) is also in development. There's also work with "reports, reports, reports" going on.
