Zentyal 3.3 available!
« on: December 16, 2013, 06:05:03 am »
Hello,

The Zentyal Development Team proudly presents Zentyal 3.3, a new version of the Linux alternative to Windows Small Business Server and Microsoft Exchange Server.

The most significant benefit introduced by this Zentyal Server release is the option to configure Zentyal as a native Microsoft Exchange replacement. Thanks to the OpenChange integration, it is possible to configure Zentyal Server as an on-premise Microsoft Exchange Server replacement with only two clicks and assign users the most common Microsoft Exchange services just as easily. Users can access these services through a web interface, or continue to use Microsoft Outlook clients as usual without having to install any additional software or plug-in on their computers.

In addition, Zentyal 3.3 supports Autodiscovery and offers Virtual Domain hosting. It also offers compatibility with Microsoft Outlook 2003 and preliminary access to calendars, contacts, mail and calendar via webmail. Since Zentyal offers a native implementation of Microsoft Exchange, users can not distinguish if their Microsoft Outlook client is using Microsoft Exchange Server or Zentyal, making migrations to Zentyal fully transparent and hassle-free for the users.

This brand new version is available for download at:

http://www.zentyal.org/download

You can check out all the details in the official announcement:

http://trac.zentyal.org/wiki/Document/Announcement/3.3

Our documentation team is working on the official documentation to make it available as soon as possible. In the meanwhile, please consult these articles and the Zentyal Forum:

We are looking forward to receiving your feedback!

Hi,
I read the announcement and have some questions:

1. The Upgrade button don't appear on the dashboard. This "test" server was upgrade from 3.0 to 3.2. I need to do something to the upgrade button to appear?

2. The samba issue in 3.2 is solved in 3.3? I really wana Know, because some of the services i need in my company (we have a subscription with 3.0) are in 3.2, and i really wana test it in this "test" before I apply in the production server.

Best regards
Miguel

The upgrade of the 3.2 packages (including the upgrade button) is not published yet (mainly due to problems with launchpad), but should be available soon!

And yes, 3.3 should fix most of the samba issues that appeared with 3.2.

Hi holtandrei,

The download bundle regression is already fixed in Git: https://github.com/Zentyal/zentyal/pull/846

A new package with the fix will be released soon, but if you can't wait you can apply the patch already:

Code: [Select]
wget https://raw.github.com/Zentyal/zentyal/master/main/core/src/EBox/CGI/Controller/DataTable.pm
sudo mv DataTable.pm /usr/share/perl5/EBox/CGI/Controller/
wget https://raw.github.com/Zentyal/zentyal/master/main/core/www/js/table-helper.js
sudo mv table-helper.js /usr/share/zentyal/www/js/
sudo service zentyal webadmin restart

Hi mpnegro,

Maybe you need to enable the 'Guest' user account. Can you confirm that?

Hi,
The Guest account was created with the last updates. I performed an update on the account (a clik on the change button of the account do the update without any changes) and then I made a change in one of my samba shares to have guest access. No error like the regular  "Samba status unknown".

I can tell you, by the tests I'm making remotly via phone, that now i can connect to the shares that have guest access. Later I will report from the computers.

Regards
Miguel

PS: The button don't appear J.A. Calvo

Yes, I know your button does not appear, you don't have to insist ;)

If I didn't reply is because the button not appearing is kind of WTF. The button does appear for me (I've just tested again right now, upgrading zentyal-core to 3.2.5 on an old zentyal 3.2 machine and appears as soon as I refresh the dashboard).

If you think you've found a bug with the button, please open a ticket in the trac trying to provide as much information as possible. I can't help you more with that, sorry.
