Tonight (26/05/20-27/05/20) the following updated packages are being released:

  • app-firewall - stop Port Forwarding adding a rule per LAN interface; remove some 1-to-1 NAT rules which never did anything; change the FTP and FTPS rules to use a port range instead of creating two rules per service
  • app-dhcp - update the MAC address database. This is a routine update often done when we do a point release of ClearOS, but, as it is not dependent on the point release, it is being released now.
  • app-network-map - as app-dhcp

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

Packages available for testing

  • app-domoticz - see this thread. Note this is another update after 2020-1.
  • libopenzwave - see this thread. Note this is another from the weekend.
  • app-base, clearos-release - In preparation for ClearOS 7.8 Beta upgrade. They are ready but, if you use them, you will not be able to pull any more Centos packages from the clearos-centos repos. You can update to packages in centos-unverified and epel-unverified but there is no way back until 7.8 is released.
  • initscripts - part of the routine point release of ClearOS but not dependent on the point release. You should be able to safely use it now.
  • syswatch - fixing issues noticed by Todd Lewis. He proposed a patch which Peter reviewed and I tweaked.
  • 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

  • app-gateway-management - update with:
    yum update app-gateway-management* 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
    Please restart GM afterwards.
  • 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-firewall - see if I can do some more bug fixes.
  • app-attack-detector to add a button beside each banned IP to you can unban it. This was being worked on by an external contributor.
  • app-network - Two more bugs to go. Team Canada are working on it.
  • app-qos - see if I can change the webconfig to use the full range of port selections allowed by the multiport rule.
