Univention Corporate Server 3 release candidate available
UCS 3.0 is based on Debian 6.0 "Squeeze", and can use all of its packages. Some applications, including Firefox, Samba and OpenLDAP, have been updated. Univention continues to use Xen for virtualisation, including version 4.1 in this release. UCS 3.0 supports IPv6 and uses Nagios 3 as a monitoring solution.
The Univention Corporate Server is a Linux distribution for medium and large companies and government agencies with up to 50,000 users, with the emphasis on the operation and administration of IT infrastructure – network-wide user and privileges management, network and email services, client management and virtualisation. A DVD image of UCS 3.0 RC1 for 32- and 64-bit x86 architectures is available to download. Information on installation and on upgrading from version 2.4 can be found in the Univention wiki. The final version of Univention Corporate Server is scheduled to be released in early December.
