Debian has been released! Omedetou!!!
=== Global Thermonucl^WUpgrade ===
Joshua will shortly upgrade all hosts and schedule reboot to use the new
kernel. We will announce disruptions on IRC.
We have already decided to deprecate a few services (see below) and more
may come. Maintaining unused softwares is painful and if noone cares
then we'd better redirect our efforts elsewhere. If we announce a
deprecation and you're still an active user or the replacement does not
suit your need, then please contact us.
=== Webmail ===
Squirrelmail is unmaintained, has security issues, and will be removed
during the previously announced upgrades. Someone even told me it fell
broken recently, so I guess it's a sign retirement has been postponed
Horde works, and should continue to, but does not add much now that
RounCube made quite some progress (and more after upgrade) and the extra
apps are not very useful compared to what StuffCloud offers; it will be
reevaluated, so tell us if you wish it to stay.
=== StuffCloud recent upgrade ===
Well, not so recent now. For a few hours the file view was utterly
broken after an upgrade due to a bug, sorry for that.
A new 'Circles' application allowing private/shared groups has been
added. In the past we add an application for personal groups but it was
not well maintained and this one makes this feature available again and
more (and should be better maintained as it is a core-app).
