The current release of Univention Corporate Server supplies various security updates and bug fixes and now offers Dovecot as the default mail server as well as the possibility to define LDAP filters for policies. UCS 4.0-3 now also brings the automatic creation of Univention Apps as images for various virtualization environments. The apps available in the Univention App Center are now automatically provided as complete applications that consist of UCS as the platform, UVMM as the management system, and the app itself. They are ready to download for various virtualization formats such as VMware or KVM.
The release of Univention Corporate Server 4.0-3 includes all security updates that have been published since the previous release so that UCS users can upload them in one go. In addition, there are numerous improvements in design and usability of the brower-based UCS management system such as a faster navigation within the management interface via the now available use of the web browser’s back and forth button.
Integration of Dovecot and new LDAP-filters bring higher performance
Thanks to the integration of the mail server Dovecot as UCS’ default IMAP/POP3 server, the performance of the UCS mail component improved significantly. Dovecot also includes functions for the automatic correction of specific errors as well as for the independent optimization of various processes which facilitate not only the administrative workload but also the security of the mail server. Very convenient for the use of LDAP-based policies particularly in large environments are additional, now available LDAP filters that limit the efficacy of the policies to objects that match the filter.
Update to current Samba version 4.2.3. and longterm Linux kernel 3.16
Thanks to the update of the UCS-integrated file, print and directory service software Samba to version 4.2.3, the Active Directory compatibility has been extended. New are, among other things, improvements in the DRS replication and as to the handling of printer drivers.
With regard to technical features, UCS 4.0-3 is now based on the latest, stable „longterm“ Linux kernel 3.16, which includes various security updates as well as additional and updated drivers for improved hardware support.
