Hi Zentyal users!
Your favorite development team proudly presents the availability of Zentyal 2.0.
Zentyal (formerly known as eBox Platform) is a Linux small business server that can act as a Gateway, Unified Threat Manager, Office Server, Infrastructure Manager, Unified Communications Server or a combination of them. The development of eBox Platform started in 2004 and currently it is an enterprise level network management solution that integrates over 20 open source network management tools in one single technology.
Let us summarize some of the new features of this new version.
Take into account that this is a major release, based on an entirely new distribution (Ubuntu 10.04 instead of 8.04 like the previous 1.4 release). This means that the migration could not be straightforward, so be extremely careful when doing it in production environments.
If you are upgrading a production machine we strongly recommend you make use of common sense and proceed with caution. Always backup your system. We encourage you to use a virtual machine to install or upgrade to 2.0 your current 1.4 configuration. Check that everything is working as expected. And then proceed with the actual upgrade. Make sure that there is not any regression with the feature set you use.
Finally, if you need any kind of support during the migration, don't hesitate to ask for our professional support (FIXME: link).
Here is the APT source entry for Zentyal 2.0:
