This mail is directly from J. A. Calvo. Zentyal is alive  ::) more than ever.

Thank you for your message and for your interest in Zentyal. With regards to your question, a new Zentyal Server version is currently under development. According to our usual release cycle, we release a new major Zentyal Server for each new Ubuntu Server LTS approximately 6 months after the Ubuntu Server release. The Zentyal Server 5.0 (based on Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS) will be released in October-November.

Best regards

@J. A. Calvo
Thanks for the News.

I'm developing a project and look for a AD/LDAP-based user-management with Mail and Exchange functionality (and others, which Zentyal delivers out of the box)  as core for other (dockeriezed) services, which will authenticate against it.
at the time of being, it hast not to be "very" stable, since the project is in a the phase of "proof of concept"

the used AD/LDAP-server should be able to run in an LXC/LXD container.

Is there a possibility to get an dev. snapshot/beta of 5.0?

TIA

Its official :D

Zentyal Development Team is glad to announce the development roadmap for Zentyal Server 5.0! This will be a new major Zentyal Server version, that will be based on Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and it will be released in November 2016. The expected release date is November 29th.

The Zentyal 5.0 version focuses primarly on improved Samba4 integration, with the goal of offering an easy-to-use Linux server that is natively compatible with the Microsoft® Active Directory. Due to the fast Samba4 development, from this version onwards Zentyal will integrate the latest stable Samba4 packages available upstream for Ubuntu/Debian. This allows quicker introduction of new Samba4 features, fixes and updates to Zentyal.

In addition, Zentyal 5.0 will include HTTP Proxy module and important improvements in Zentyal core to make it compatible with the changes in Ubuntu 16.04 (i.e. Systemd instead of Upstart for daemon management) and the possibility to install packages in Debian systems in the future. Due to the issues found recently in the OpenChange (that offers native synchronization with MS Outlook clients via MAPI protocol), this functionality has been dropped until the issues have been fixed and the module has been stabilized. For the time being, Zentyal can be deployed as a IMAP-POP3 mail server.

So that means no samba 4.5 released last month? :(

Finally, it seems we may backport 4.4.7 packages from Debian, which at first glance they seem to work well. Note that Ubuntu packages are still 4.3.11.

Sadly, we also tried with the 4.5.1 packages from Debian experimental repo but they don't seem to work at all. Note also that this doesn't mean we can't provide an upgrade to to Samba 4.5 in the near future if those packages are fixed or adapted for Ubuntu.

Finally we will include 4.5 packages from Debian. That means the packages will be copied to our repo as they are, with no custom patches from Zentyal as we needed in the past, everything should work with the regular Samba code from upstream.
