· 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). In retrospect, we should have made all these changes when ClearOS absorbed the old ClarkConnect Edition. No matter, time to move now that we have better product names. 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.

· For new installations, ClarkConnect 5.0 is close to final release quality. There are a number of known issues (see below) that need to be addressed; notably, the LDAP/Samba initialization is still fragile. There are literally a couple of dozen steps performed to initialize LDAP/Samba and ClarkConnect needs to handle the scenarios where any of the steps fail. We are not quite there yet!
April 3rd, 2009
· An update to CentOS 5.3.
· A change in the package naming convention -- from cc-XYZ to app-XYZ.
· A first release of the bandwidth manager.
· Content filter changes (antivirus engine update).
· A functional print server/queue solution.

· Beta 1 is certainly more stable, but it is still very buggy. The new bandwidth and QoS manager is the only missing feature. The significant changes are: features are in better working order; Samba PDC/Simple Server modes are now working; user import is now available. Due to the nature of the new user/LDAP architecture, we recommend waiting until beta 2 before installing 5.0 in a real-world environment. This release is almost feature complete, but there are still too many known issues to start bug hunting. We will be spending the next week or so resolving the known issues -- the result will be beta 2.

· Alpha 2 is certainly more stable, but it is still alpha quality. The significant changes are: features are in better working order; the developer environment is available; the kernel is up-to-date (notably, IMQ bandwidth QoS is integrated). There are many features that are not working in this alpha release. We have made this release public just to get some initial feedback from third-party developers, partners, and interested members of the ClarkConnect community. You should install this release if you are a software developer who needs to get up to speed with 5.0 or a person who likes to tinker with alpha releases.
