Released: February 29, 2012
If you do not want to read these release notes (you should!), please at least read the following two bullet items:
ClearOS Community 6.2.0 Beta 3 has arrived! Along with the usual round of bug fixes and enhancements, Beta 3 includes the following new apps: Content Filter, Flexshare, Samba, Remote Server Backup, Print Server, Password Policies, and Network Visualizer. New apps in the Professional Edition include: Google Apps Synchronization, Active Directory Connector, and Central Management. This will be the last beta as we head toward a final release. We will soon be able to put those Duke Nukem jabs behind us.
For those of you who missed the recent announcement, ClearOS now comes in two different flavors: Community and Professional. That “Enterprise” name was a holdover from the old days and it has always caused some confusion (we heard you Ladislav). The Professional Edition includes technical support and is intended for businesses, education, non-profit and other professional organizations. The Community Edition has all the old Enterprise features and is intended for less critical environments: home, Linux shops, and just plain old open source hacking. You can read the gory details on this topic in an earlier blog post.
So what can you expect in the final release of ClearOS Community 6? Along with updating the base system built on source code from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 1) 6.2, this release includes the following major changes. Please note: these features will be rolled out during the alpha/beta phase.
Along with many bug fixes and enhancements, the following new apps have been released with beta 2.
