Tonight (21/04/20-22/04/20) the following updated packages are being released:

  • app-samba-common. Delete wins.dat/wins.tdb on nmb restart; delete gencache.tdb on smb restart; move restarts to systemd for docker/samba compatibility.
  • app-firewall. Use it to remove the old app-bandwidth which does not work with the 7.7 kernel or iptables. Also permanently pref off app-bandwidth processing. If app-bandwidth processing happens the firewall fails ......
  • app-flexshare. Exclude temporary files from being saved in .trash, if the Recycle Bin is enabled.

* by the package name = the package is also being released to Business at the same time.

Packages available for testing

  • app-configuration-backup - do not restore app-bandwidth. I have yet to test this myself but will also see if I can stop it restoring the bandwidth.conf file.
  • app-domoticz - see this thread.
  • app-kopano - Removes requirement for kopano-webapp-plugin-delayeddelivery which was deprecated a while back. Only available to Kopano users. To update, do:
    yum update app-kopano --enablerepo=clearos-paid-testing

  • app-dnsthingy - This is the same update as app-gateway-management but also includes a rebranding from DNSThingy to AdamOne. Update with:
    yum update app-dnsthingy adamone --enablerepo=clearos-*-testing

  • adamone - this is the underlying package for the above beta versions of app-gateway-management/app-dnsthingy. If you have either of the above beta's installed, you can update with:
    yum update adamone --enablerepo=clearos-contribs-testing

  • app-gateway-management - update with:
    yum update app-gateway-management* adamone --enablerepo=clearos-*-testing

  • app-network - code merge complete. Seems to work for everything except external VLANs and a few quirks.

    • Now allows you to set up Wireless and Cellular interfaces. You will also need app-wireless to configure a NIC as an access point. Otherwise manual configuration is then needed for WiFi and Cellular devices.
    • I've tweaked it for kernel mode PPPoE (much faster and lower resources). For the moment we are not forcibly converting PPPoE interfaces over, but if you edit an interface it will switch to kernel mode.
    • Hides irrelevant interfaces from app-network-report such as docker0, veth* and ifb*.
    • Numerous other changes since last 2.6.0
    • Do not use the the update if you use VLAN's on external interfaces.

Unless detailed otherwise, packages available for testing can be installed with:
yum update --enablerepo=clearos-updates-testing {package-name}

Packages being worked on:

  • app-attack-detector to add a button beside each banned IP to you can unban it. This is being worked on by an external contributor.
  • app-network - bug #41 should now be fixed. Two more bugs to go. Team Canada are working on it.
  • nextcloud - upstream v18. An update has been pushed, but it is still being worked on because of a couple of residual issues
  • syswatch - fixing issues noticed by Todd Lewis. He proposed a patch which Peter is reviewing.

    An update to app-web-proxy (the Web Proxy Server) is available for testing. It adds setting to allow you to enable/disable the disk cache. In the past, this has always been enabled but, if you have a fast internet connection or slow disk, it should be disabled. There is more info in the app documentation and linked KB article, but it has always been a command line change. I have now made it available through the webconfig.

    Also, as newer internet connections are generally quite fast, for new installs the setting is being disabled by default. For existing installs it is not changing whatever the user already has chosen.

    Great news Nick.

    Should testers report back their findings here in this thread or somewhere else?
