0.2 works very well for me :D

When can we expect to see roaming profiles? Is that likely to be 0.3 or is that still a long way off? Also, are there plans to cache passwords so that i could login to my laptop even if it were out of range of the wireless network? At present i have to use a separate local account...

Hi,

Yes, a first version of roaming profiles will be in 0.3 asap. Regarding to the passwords, yes, we would like to do something like that, but there is no date set for that yet...

Thanks for your feedback!

Dear Calvo,
Its really great news that Zentyal Desktop alpha version has been released. But you said that it will support only GNOME environment, where as Ubuntu is dropping GNOME and going for Unity.

http://www.ubuntu-news.net/2010/10/25/ubuntu-11-04-to-ship-unity/
http://unity.ubuntu.com/

I hope and request atleast Zentyal Desktop should (will) work with Unity, as we all planned to load ubuntu at all our clients in future also.


I thought Unity was planned only as default for the netbook edition :$

Hi SamK,

We don't plan to support any Linux Desktop Environment different than GNOME at the moment. But if anyone could contribute doing it, we will be very glad to integrate it :)

May I ask why we'd rather make Linux and our tools cater to Windows users, than to make them so they cater to ourselves, as Linux users?  Seems kinda' bass-ackwards to me...
Zentyal 2.1.xx installed from CD, running on
P4 CPU 3.40GHz / 3GB DDR2/800 / 1x64GB SSD

My Zentyal Feature Wish-List:

IPv6 * LinuxMCE Integration * Blocklist Mgmt
x2go Module * Groups that actually MEAN SOMETHING
Roaming Profiles between Master and Slave Servers

Good morning everyone,

I have just installed zentyal in my network to work as a file server and print sharing. Can I save the folders or the documents created by my users in the file server module to an external drive? If so, how can I do it? Thank you.

I think zentyal is the best for ubuntu networks since we are using ubuntu in our workstations. I am planning also to deploy it as a router and used the whole module and avail of the professional service.

best regard

I'm afraid that probably the next version of Zentyal Desktop will be for Ubuntu 11.08 rather than for 11.04. We are now focused on the development of Zentyal 2.2.

Of course any community contribution will be always welcome :)
