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 :-)

It's quiet...too quiet.

Posted by on in ClearFoundation

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!
