Usually, users don’t like to scrub the Github issue tracker, so I just want to share what are our developers are working on during the spring.
@stephdl is doing a tremendous job and he is one of the fastest code cruncher I’ve ever seen!
He is trying to improve the virtual host and proxy pass with FQDN support (many of you already asked for it).
The goal is to have a full featured Docker module which includes automatic firewall and HTTP proxy configuration using https://portainer.io/ and https://traefik.io/
@davidep is helping Stéphane, while improving NethGUI security and update Samba to latest stable release (call for QA: https://github.com/NethServer/dev/issues/5457).
They both did a really good job and released many improvements on Mail 2 module which will be quite probably the default for new NethServer 7.5 installations.
@edoardo_spadoni is experimenting with Cockpit and VueJs: as many of you asked at FOSDEM; we would like to have Cockpit as one of the strong points during next 7.5 life cycle.
@filippo_carletti is working on a very complex refactor of firewall QoS, maybe we will have full download/upload bandwidth control soon!
Thanks to Filippo analysis, I’m going to try a new NDPI release, add a bypass IPS feature, along with some minor improvements and cleanups on the firewall. And, for GDPR fans, Im’ going to add and option to backup logs inside the data backup.
Next big step will be NethServer 7.5, we are waiting for CentOS 7.5 beta which will probably released in few days!
