ebox-desktop proof of concept released
« on: June 12, 2009, 02:58:28 pm »
Hi fellow eBox users,

With the upcoming release of eBox 1.2, we have reached a point on which we can configure a lot of services, among these services there are a lot that are likely to be used on a desktop client.

We have thought we could make system integrators' lives easier, greatly simplifying the process of installing and configuring a set of clients with a solution faithful to our philosophy.

And here it is:

ebox-desktop is a new package for Ubuntu Jaunty desktop machines that provides autoconfiguration for some clients (evolution, pidgin, ekiga, ...) that use the services provided by eBox. It also allows the client machines to authenticate against the eBox server.

Please take into acount that this is a beta proof of concept, not an official release, so use it at your own risk.

You can read everything about this new product here:

We hope you find it useful and enjoy it! Comments and suggestions are really welcome!
