Koozali SME Server 9.2 Final

The Koozali SME Server development team is pleased to announce the release of Koozali SME Server 9.2 Final which will be the next stable release of the SME9.# branch.  ISOs are syncing to release branch now.

We dedicate this release of SME Server 9.2 to Tony Keane who passed away on 1st April, 2016. He was a long time user and supporter of Koozali SME Server and one of the founding members of the Koozali Foundation.

SME Server is intended for use on servers in small and medium businesses and is based on CentOS 6.#.

The latest release, SME Server 9.2, provides users with an update to the distribution's 9.x series and is based on CentOS 6.9. SME Server 9.2 includes upstream updates and bug fixes and includes local fixes and additional feature requests. 

Major Changes in this release. Updated all to Koozali branding. Server Manager - Allow access to the server-manager without SSL from the loopback, Don't redirect to http when login in/out of the server-manager from localhost, Bug reporting template. File Server - added W10 support to SME Domain. LDAP - Hook into the new ssl-update event. Mail Server - Update qpsmtpd to release 0.99.2 (including multiple plugins), Allow reading SSL_version from the tls_protocols config file (and turn TLSv1 back on by default), Modify whitelist_soft transaction to interact with dnsbl filter, Revert forcing TLSv1 patch as it breaks some inbound delivery, Remove karma rcpt handling, Check rua is defined before trying to parse it to prevent an error if a domain has a DMARC entry published with no rua, add support for the uribl plugin, add detailed spamassassin report headers. Web Server - Hook into the new ssl-update event, Set TLSv1 back to enabled (but keep a prop to disable it if needed). Other fixes and updates - Correctly display http URL to the server-manager in the console, Remove motd text from grub.cfg.

About SME Server
================

SME Server is the leading Linux distribution for small and medium
enterprises. Loozali SME Server is brought to you by Koozali Foundation, Inc.,
a non-profit corporation that exists to provide marketing and legal support
for SME Server.

SME Server is freely available under the GNU General Public License and
is only possible through the efforts of the SME Server community.
However, the availability and quality of SME Server is dependent on
meeting our expenses, such as hosting costs, server hardware, etc.

As such, we ask for a donation to offset costs and fund further development.

a) If you are a school, a church, a non-profit organisation or an individual
using SME Server for private purposes, we would appreciate you to contribute
within your means toward the costs associated with hosting, maintenance and
development.

b) If you are a company or an integrator and you are deploying SME Server in
the course of your work to generate revenue, we expect you to make a donation
commensurate with the level of revenue you generate and the number of servers
your have in the field. Please, help the project

Please visit http://wiki.contribs.org/Donate to donate.

Koozali Inc is happy to supply an invoice for any donations received,
simply email treasurer@koozali.org

Tony Keane
============

It is with huge sadness that we learnt the passing of Tony Keane on Friday
1st April, 2016. He was a long time user and supporter of Koozali SME Server
and one of the founding members of the Koozali Foundation.
We dedicate this release of SME Server 9.2 to Tony.
Without him and a handful of others the community would not have been secured
with the Koozali foundation and our current cluster of servers to build and
maintain your favourite distro. If you download and use it,
please remember him and his work, and that of all the other contributors
who work tirelessly to make Koozali SME as good as it is.

We extend our thoughts and deepest sympathies to his family.
