Here’s what’s new in Univention Corporate Server 4.1-3
Release highlights of Univention Corporate Server 4.1-3 include an improved App Center with support for migrating applications to dockerized apps (also known as conternized apps), the stabilization of the replication of directory service objects functionality, and support for joining more than 100,000 directory service objects through the Samba-based Active Directory (AD) domain controllers.
Furthermore, it appears that the application appliances have been improved again to allow app providers to define their own branding and enable a fast demonstration mode. Additionally, it’s now possible for public testers to evaluate the app in the appliance using pre-defined settings, which fastens the entire testing process.
Other than the above, Univention Corporate Server 4.1-3 implements support for defining the configuration settings of the MySQL database management system by using UCR variables, and the latest security updates have been imported from upstream for some of the most important components, including Samba, OpenSSL, libvirt, and QEMU.
Lastly, today’s update of Univention Corporate Server comes with security updates in the standard LDAP ACLs and the UMC server.
