GOsa² provides a powerful framework for managing
accounts and systems in LDAP databases. Using
GOsa² allows system administrators to easily
manage users and groups, fat and thin clients,
applications, phones and faxes, mail distribution
lists, and many other parameters. In conjunction
with FAI (Fully Automatic Installation), GOsa²
allows the highly automated installation of
preconfigured systems. GOsa² therefore provides a
single, LDAP-based point of administration for
large and small environments, thus making the
administration of users and systems and all
related parameters manageable and easy.

This release fixes an error when removing templates, fixes a navigation issue, updates the bundled Smarty, introduces sortable listing to ACL and POSIX dialogs, fixes a problem with mail-method parameters that were read from LDAP, adds a flag to allow modification of generated UID proposals, improves dyngroups to not write dynamic values back to the LDAP, replaces in_array calls with a method that uses strict matching, improves samba password hashing and its error handling, updated Kolab tab to use a sortable list for my networks entries, and fixes cleaning of FAI objects in LDAP.
This release unifies the password hook behavior, restores samba kickoff time settings, and fixes mail address checking and account expiration checks. Additionally, the ACL handling has been improved to be not so picky with user or group DNs with a case mismatch.
This major release comes with completely updated CSS3/HTML5 design. It provides fixed English wording, custom filter methods, unified and sortable lists, new reference tabs, and a new property editor that makes setup easier. Other new features include dynamic group settings, a new path menu, wildcard ACLs, fine tuned plugin hooks, and an improved robustness.
Post-event handling has been updated and pre-event hooks have been added. The sudoers plugin now allows special chars, and the Samba plugin has been updated to work well with 3.4.x versions of Samba. Samba hash maintenance can be disabled, and password proposals can be enabled.
This release fixes issues with phone accounts, TLS handling in the Web base setup module, DHCP statement handling, and mail filter generation. Filter descriptions were updated to behave more like the former 2.6 series.
