Release candidate 0.9.35-rc1 - Let's Encrypt, auto-update and more


Recommended Posts

Dear Froxlor Community,
we are proud to announce the first release candidate for our upcoming version 0.9.35 which includes some new kick-ass features.
Support for Let's Encrypt
Many of you were waiting for this one for quite some time now. We finally managed to include ssl-certificate generation via Let's Encrypt directly within froxlor's interface. It's easy as a click on "use let's encrypt" when adding/editing a domain. The certificate will be created and renewed automatically.
Please keep in mind that this feature is in BETA state.
Froxlor now provides an editor for custom virtual-host configurations for you. Whenever you have special needs for specific domains or you want to have full control over the content of the generated virtual-hosts - this feature is what you want :-)

This feature was not fully operational and will not be included in the final version of 0.9.35
Multiple default IP addresses
You can now select multiple IP addresses you want to be set as default for new domains in the System-settings. Until now it was only possible to define one default IP address. This is especially handy if your server has an IPv4 and IPv6 address for example.
As of this release candidate, you will be able to update to future releases from within the webinterface. It will automatically download the latest archive and extract it - and you're done - and yes, you can use that already to update to the final release of 0.9.35 when it's released.
Menu structure
We re-organized some menu-items to reflect their corresponding affinity. The former "Server" category is now called "System". PHP related settings / information are now in their own category. Also "IPs and Ports" and "Recalculate resource usage" were put in the "Resources" category (where they belong).
Set MYSQL_PASSWORD on configuration templates
It is now possible to set the MYSQL_PASSWORD value (via JavaScript, only client-side) when configurating services with our templates. This eases the process and you do not need to search and replace for MYSQL_PASSWORD in the config files again (also you are likely to not miss any of the occurences).
System-Log for customer
The customers are now able to see actions related to their account in the menu-item "System-Log", depending on the log-level set in the settings. This is also very helpful for response-messages from Let's Encrypt.
Changes in 0.9.35-rc1:
You can see all (minor) changes in our bugtracker at http://redmine.froxlor.org/versions/68

Download: 0.9.35-rc1

Note: Gentoo users might use the 9999 ebuild for a live-version. There will be no Debian packages for release-candidates.
