You cannot install iRedMail-0.8.5 on below Linux/BSD distribution releases
Ubuntu 12.10. Please use 12.04 (LTS) or 13.04 instead.
RHEL/CentOS 5. Please use RHEL/CentOS 6 instead. RHEL 5 is in End of Production life cycle, we have to drop support for it to reduce our workload and bring you better support for RHEL/CentOS 6: https://access.redhat.com/support/polic … es/errata/
OpenBSD 5.1, 5.2. Please use OpenBSD-5.3 instead.
openSUSE 12.1, 12.2. Please use openSUSE-12.3 instead.
Drop support means you cannot install new iRedMail server on them, but we will continue supporting iRedMail servers which still running on RHEL/CentOS 5.
We will drop support for Debian 6 (squeeze) in next iRedMail release, and we recommend all Debian users choose the latest stable release Debian 7 (wheezy) for iRedMail. According to Debian web site: Debian 6 is the current old stable release, "The (Debian) security team tries to support a stable distribution for about one year after the next stable distribution has been released, except when another stable distribution is released within this year. It is not possible to support three distributions; supporting two simultaneously is already difficult enough."
We will drop support for Gentoo Linux in next iRedMail release, because just few users are running Gentoo Linux for iRedMail.
Maybe you will say why not drop support for OpenBSD, it has just few users too. but it's my favourite Unix distribution, i will continue supporting it.
Use EPEL yum repo on RHEL/CentOS 6 by default. Details about EPEL repo: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
Add SQL trigger to insert value for column 'used_quota.domain' automatically, so that we can easily calculate per-domain used mailbox quota.
Able to assign mail alias as member of another mailing alias on MySQL/PostgreSQL backends. NOTE: This is implemented in OpenLDAP backend.
New SQL column and LDAP attribute for mail domain, used to store default preferred language for newly created mail users.
It also fixes some issues:
Incorrect Amavisd column name: policy.unchecked_lovers_maps (incorrect) -> policy.unchecked_lover.
Incorrect LDAP ACL for attribute "memberOfGroup". Thanks Hoang Tuan Viet <vietht _at_ vccloud.vn> for the report.
