First Zentyal 2.1 beta available for download!

The Development Team of Zentyal, the Linux small business server previously know as eBox Platform, is glad to announce the availability of the first packages and installer CD images for Zentyal 2.1! The new installer is now available for download at the Zentyal Beta Downloads page. Furthermore, the 2.1 packages can also be installed on an existing Ubuntu Server 10.04 following the instructions of the Installation Guide.

Zentyal 2.1 is a development version based on Ubuntu 10.04.2 and it will become Zentyal 2.2, next stable release, in September 2011. Until then, the Zentyal Development Team will frequently release new beta versions with new features and improvements that you can help testing. As to this version, the most relevant changes include:

  • Cleaning/refactoring in code and packaging
  • New i18n system
  • Use of Redis 2.0 to improve performance in the configuration backend
  • Removed obsolete migrations to reduce installation time
  • Some minor usability improvements (much more coming soon!)
  • Zentyal rebranding on package names, URLs and filesystem
  • Includes new OpenVPN 2.1.4 for Windows installer
  • User corner is now a separated package (zentyal-usercorner)
  • You can also check the full changelog. The full roadmap for Zentyal 2.2 will be published shortly.

    Please remember that 2.1 is a beta version and it is not intended for production environments. Having said that, we would greatly appreciate your help in testing this version and giving us your feedback or reporting any issues through the Zentyal Forum or Zentyal Trac.
