Peter Baldwin replied to the topic Re:Latest ClearOS auto update in the forums.
It looks like some updates were unintentionally released to the contribs repo. So far, it looks like ffmpeg and BackupPC are the two big issues. We had scheduled to look at ffmpeg just after the final release of 6.6.0 (tracker), so the package in clearos-test should not have been promoted to the contribs repo.

We're on it.

The updates-testing repos (beta) is in a state of flux as we prepare for the final release. The problem should clear up (if it hasn't already!)

Ben Chambers replied to the topic Re:Website/SSL certificate in the forums.

You're right, of course...managing SSL certificates with websites could certainly be made a lot more user friendly with not having to drop down to the command line being the ultimate goal.

To answer your question on why...it's all a matter of resources and priorities. There's three ways for things to get developed in ClearOS...

1. ClearCenter to invest resources to have paid developers work on the feature
2. Volunteers from the community to commit time to a project
3. 3rd party developers to create apps/extensions that are installed via the Marketplace, with the option to charge for the app to recoup time invested

For what you're describing, only 1 or 2 are really viable since (#3) it's difficult to take a free app, make it better, then charge for the entire app for the new feature.

So now you're down to whether ClearCenter can see an ROI and whether this precedes all other development going on or someone finding time in the community.

At ClearCenter, we've discussed better integration since many don't know that we resell signed certs from providers Thawte, Comodo and GeoTrust, so there is a path to an ROI...just nothing that outweighs some of the other stuff going on.

I've added it to the bug tracker as a feature so it can be commented on and viewed by others...but that's about as far as I can guarantee it goes for the short term.

If you can make samba4 in active directory mode for community with limit of 20-25 users at least will be much useful for small business users.
I hope you can see that we're not too keen on such a scenario. A shop with 20-25 Microsoft access licenses should be willing to part ways with an $80 / year ClearOS Professional subscription to support their open-source Linux server solution. I would hope.

Deploying Samba4 in Active Directory mode is only required by businesses/organizations, so it will only be available in the Professional Edition... sorry. Samba4 is still used in the Community Edition, but not in Active Directory mode.

I'm guessing it will be about two weeks from now (give or take a week).
