NS 7 beta 2 is out (ok, we are still waiting for the press announcement :P), but we are already focused on next steps.
I don’t expect any major bug on NS 7 beta 2, except for the issue regarding user manipulation for Samba 4 from the web interface ( Failed to get machine PTY: No such file or directory ). @davidep is working hard on it: we couldn’t replicate the bug, but Davide is trying to find an alternative implementation to test on systems where the issue is present.
Please stay tuned on Github issue tracker:
While the RC release is on the way, the new major planned feature is the Asterisk/FreePBX module.
@alep, @jobezic, @edoardo_spadoni and @Stll0 are in contact with the Sangoma guys to improve our collaboration and provide a valuable experience for our PBX users!
As @filippo_carletti already announced, we are in the way to replace Snort with Suricata.
I’d also like very much to create a guide to install a couple of web interfaces:
Both Scirius and Evebox are hard to maintain (and you will need a big machine with at least 4GB of RAM and 2 CPUs), but at least someone could give it a try following a simple howto.
Last but not least, we are trying to add the deep packet inspection to the firewall using NDPI ( https://github.com/NethServer/xt_ndpi-kmod ). This feature will allow the administrator to create firewall rules like “only the boss computer can access Facebook” or “nobody can use torrent”.
