Zentyal 3.5 available
« on: July 01, 2014, 11:30:36 am »
Hi all,

The Zentyal Development Team proudly presents Zentyal 3.5, a new version of the Linux alternative to Windows Small Business Server and Microsoft Exchange Server.

This release focuses on stabilization and simplification of the architecture, highlighting the use of Samba as single LDAP server instead of synchronizing with OpenLDAP and the removal of other components.

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://wiki.zentyal.org/wiki/Zentyal_3.5_Announcement

We would like to thank the community and all early adopters involved in making 3.5 the best release ever. We wish you will have as much pleasure and satisfaction using this new release that we had working on it.

Looking forward your feedback and don't forget more updates and new features are coming among next weeks!
Zentyal Server Lead Developer

I have tested the 3.5 from beginning beta. I thought the step to 14.04lts is a good way and also to focus on openchange. i had big hopes on 3.5 for minimizing problems of 3.4, but ...

But now after release i must see, that new main problems have arrived:
  • no mail connector (removing user corner) left, so no mails can be received from external accounts when using a relay server for imap or pop3, a very big problem for me
  • active sync support? Still not user ready and for me still not working (tried both z-push and sogo-activesync, still nessesary manually to install by command line, no pro cons for both alternatives. as the roadmap says, 3.5 should give a a full working activesync.
At the moment, 3.5 is unusable for me. It´s still a playground. And i invest hours of hours in it, so many that i can´t count them. :-[
Sorry, in my oppinion 3.5 is again to early published. It´s still beta status.

Is there any news regarding the upgrade from 3.4 to 3.5 ?  I am still doubting what would be best. Do a manual upgrade (reinstall) or wait till there is an upgrade from the team.

This post is not to hasten things but only to provide me and perhaps others with the info to make up their minds.

Thanks for the great work,
Selo

The upgrade button in the dashboard will appear soon, maybe it's better if you wait a few days :)

anyone tried the Zentyal 3.4 to Zentyal 3.5 Update-Button, which is available since yesterday? Is the button safe to use? Any issues detected?

I did the upgrade, without seeing a button. I installed first all komponent upgrades, then the system Upgrades and after reboot you have a 3.5 system.
But be aware, user corner will be removed and you external mail reception has been removed from zentyal .  And  some moore changes between 3.4 an 3.5 .so look if the step will not give you some extensive work. ;)

Torsten73, how did you exactly do that? What commands did you use or which steps?

If you look in the home screen you See the available updates. And you should See components updates in red. Click on it and the Rest AS discriebed .
You can also do it over the left core menue, Software, components zentral.

Its really easy. Good look.

https://forum.zentyal.org/index.php/topic,21455.msg82792.html#msg82792

As you can see, seems that the message was closed already. The only workaround for that is to edit the configuration with /usr/share/zentyal/redisvi, and delete the "upgrade: 1" line from closedMessages. But be careful as you can easily corrupt your configuration if you edit something else. Make sure you have a backup.

That was the usual system flag for the banner. What state is it on your system?

"proudly presents" and "removes .... ftp ..." does not sound well here ;-)
