Version 7.50 of the Citadel open source groupware for Linux has been released. The new version improves the template system of Citadel's WebCit web interface and uses JavaScript to enhance the mailbox summary view. According to the release notes, its message display and email composition dialogues have been updated. The developers extended Citadel's SpamAssassin interface to include a SPAM blocking and tagging system, definable for each Citadel site. Citadel 7.50 scans messages for malware (via ClamAV) even without SpamAssassin enabled. According to the developers, Citadel 7.5 contains several hundred bug fixes, as well as general performance improvements and user interface enhancements.

Citadel consists of an SMTP, a POP3 and an IMAP server capable of filtering emails via Sieve. The software offers discussion forums, calendars, address books, task managers, instant messaging, and a web mailer (Webcit). Many of these features are accessible via GroupDAV. The Citadel software is based on a bulletin board system developed back in 1987. It can be found in many Linux distributions, although not always in its latest version. The Citadel web site describes the easy install auto-build process.
