First release candidate for Zentyal 3.0 available!
« on: August 23, 2012, 09:14:52 pm »
Hi all!

The Zentyal Development Team is proud to announce that the 3.0-rc1 installer is now available for testing! This is the first release candidate for the 3.0 stable series: the next stable Zentyal server version, Zentyal 3.0, will be published on the 13th of September.

As the beta releases have ended, it means that this version comes already with all the Zentyal 3.0 features. From now on, all the focus will be on bugfixing (your help finding those bugs is crucial!), polishing details and also preparing the migration process from 2.2 to 3.0.

Regarding the changes since the last 2.3-2 release, we want to highlight the following:

* Brand new look & feel of the user interface!
* New samba module that integrates the beta5 version and allows Zentyal to join Windows Server domains!
* Some improvements in Zarafa, such as multi domain support and integration with Jabber

Moreover, a lot of bugfixing has been done too!

You can download the new installer, as usual, from the Beta Downloads page.

The easiest way to test this release candidate is to do a fresh installation of Zentyal 3.0-rc1 having Internet connection to make sure that the latest versions of the packages are downloaded. If you already have a Zentyal 2.3-2 installed, you can upgrade the full system to get these new versions using the Software Management module or with apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade in command line.

And please, remember that Zentyal 3.0-rc1 is a release candidate and it is not intended for production environments.

So, let the games begin! The finder of the biggest bug will receive tons of glory and fame!

Hi, can I use this release for work environments? I ask this because I've recently moved a server to a new one with recent hardware, and Zentyal 2.3 wasn't compatible with many of the hardware so even I managed the way to make it work, the system is a bit unstable and I would like to have it working at 100% as soon as possible. So can I install this and have it working perfectly or should I wait for the definitive stable release?

Thanks

Was is 100% confirmed is that you can not ask 3.0-rc1 to be 100% stable and polished. Do expect some bugs here and there thus I would suggest that you do not use it for prod with such expectation in mind.

Can we restore the 2.3 beta configuration on top of the 3.0-rc1 install? If not, I'll just do lots of screen shots!

I would say: wait 2 days and do an upgrade through update manager....

Is it just me or does the 3.0-RC1 image not install any zentyal packages at all?

It doesn't even have the zentyal repository added.

How do I install zentyal from this image? (I installed as minimal virtual server install).

Great work!
But is there any plans for using one ldap tree? Now zentyal have 1st ldap for mail,proxy and other service and 2nd for samba4,samba sharing.
Only internal side of scripts make user management work correct, cos adding users in both of ldap's.
On this stage for me is not clear one of the moments, if i change password at windows box(joined to domain) password for mail client will changed?

P.S. Any plans in future integrate openchange  http://openchange.org?

Huh? I just downloaded the Zentyal 3.0-rc1 image, burned it to a CD and it installed just fine.
