Release Notes: This release introduces a new tool called "IP manager". It allows you to further control the integrated DHCP server directly from the Web interface to keep track of machines which are not m23 clients. Administrators can build and search an inventory of external machines and prevent mistakes by blocking specific IP addresses, IP ranges, or client names for their use as m23 clients. Dynamic IP ranges for external devices can also be determined. Support for clients in subnets has also been added. Several bugs were squashed.
Release Notes: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is now supported, together with its desktops Unity (3D/2D), a classical Gnome environment based on Gnome 2, Xfce, KDE, LXDE, and the pure text mode. The new login manager LightDM accompanies the list of new desktop environments. In the client's real-time status, the output of the client can be watched live in the admin's browser. m23 now automatically suggests free IP addresses for the next client. The internal virtual box virtualization was improved (nesting and 64-bit are now possible). Many smaller changes and adjustments were made.
Release Notes: Support for CentOS clients on 32- and 64-bit systems has been added. The French translation has been revised. RAID support and package searching have been improved. The plugin interface has been deactivated. Several smaller improvements and bugfixes have been made.
Release Notes: Due to changes on external servers, download mirrors were replaced and a Trinity mirror was added. Thus, client installations are also faster now. The package sources lists were extended by further configuration options, where the file systems supported by the distribution can be chosen and the package manager can be configured individually. Users can now request online help, where the support service can access the server, if they register for this (payable) service and activate port-forwarding. Further improvements concern the xorg.conf, LibreOffice, Ubuntu integration, and minor bugfixes.
Release Notes: Debian Squeeze was added as a client distribution. Trinity Desktop environment was added as an installable desktop. VirtualBox versions were updated. Client integration was improved, and imaging was repaired. Many small improvements concerning readability, hardware detection, and other features were made.
Release Notes: This new major release adds OpenSuse to the list of supported client distributions. The m23 server was updated to Debian Squeeze. m23 now supports many additional languages on the client side. LDAP now also works for the halfSister distributions. Hardware detection was improved, and some traps for unexperienced administrators were eliminated. There were also a lot of minor changes and bugfixes which make using m23 more comfortable.
Release Notes: A client name may be up to 64 characters long and can contain dots for use as a Web server. A client name is checked whether it is a valid domain name. Ubuntu can now be used as a server. Ubuntu can now be installed in text mode. The package source lists of Ubuntu 10.04 were expanded. Every m23HSAdmin function now sends detailed status messages to m23 server. Installation of grub was improved. Linux kernel was updated to version 188.8.131.52. Small hardware detection was integrated into m23 boot media. An emergency NIC module loader was added. Hardware detection hwinfo was refined. m23hwscanner was improved. Many minor changes were made.
Release Notes: This release supports software RAIDs on m23 clients. Partitions or entire drives can be combined to RAIDs. m23 supports RAID levels 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, and 10. These RAID levels have advantages and disadvantages in relation to speed increase and data reliability. RAID arrays can be used like normal partitions (to host operating systems or as swap or storage space). The kernel and the modules can be installed on a non-RAID partition to enable the installation of the OS on all RAID types. You can define additional mount points as it is done in /etc/fstab.
Release Notes: A new and completely adapted administration interface, the ability to do administrative jobs on a series of clients concurrently with the group functions, and mass installation tools, which are helpful for when installing a large number of clients with the same software configuration. A new update function that makes it easier to create patches and update m23 servers was added along with a debug mode for analyzing client problems. You can now log in to the running installation process via SSH. Encryption was implemented for client/server communications. Hardware detection was enhanced, and a script for converting Debian CDs into a installation pool was added.
Release Notes: This release adds support for VMware.
