Tonight (30/06/20-01/07/20) the following updated packages are being released:

  • app-base - intelligently guess a year for the yum.log entries so the Software Updates screen displays in the correct order instead of reverse alphabetic (May, Jun, Apr ....). Only use this package with ClearOS Community. You will get a dependency error with Home and Business until 7.8 is released for paid customers.

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

Packages available for testing

  • app-flexshare - Remove TLSv1.1 support from the web server. Although the patch is in app-flexshare, it affects the webserver
  • syswatch - fixing issues noticed by Todd Lewis. He proposed a patch which Peter reviewed and I tweaked. Feedback from anyone with a dynamic IP would be appreciated.
  • 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:

  • webconfig-httpd - I'd like to bring it up to the same upstream version as httpd. Also remove TLSv1.1 support.
  • clearos-framework - remove webconfig TLSv1.1 support
  • app-php-engines - add support for PHP 7.3
  • 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.
