When is the next EnGarde release?

Postby hsinanch on Mon May 04, 2009 1:52 pm

Hi,

I am new to EnGarde, but I found it's useful and evaluating it now. I just found there is no update for a while, compared with previous release (about 3~4 releases per year).
Can we know when is the next release and any new feature and update in advanced? Thanks!

We won't have a release this month, although there may be one in June. We've got a pretty good security record, so it's still quite secure.

What changes would you like to see?

Best,
Dave

Hi Dave,

Thanks for update.

I would like to have some features:
1. Web mail (openwebmail, squirrelmail or others) integrated into EnGarde. I know there is a HOWTO there, but it will be better to have it ready after install.
2. GUI settings for Samba/NFS/rsync file services, not just vsFTPd. We can still use it in internal network as a shared file server.
3. Proxy server. With EnGarde's Firewall/Router/NAT features, this can be also integrated.
4. Virus scanning integration (ClamAV or any free virus scanner). This can also integrated with Proxy server.
5. More settings for SELinux, and document/FAQ in GUI so new users won't have problem with it.
6. System monitor service like Nagios, groundwork, Zabbix, phpsysinfo, or so on.
7. SSL-VPN. I used to run SSL-VPN Explorer before. Unfortunately, it was merged by another company and no longer free of use.
8. Web based SSH/FTP like Mindterm and net2ftp. Useful tools and you can limit open ports to Internet.
9. Cluster support (Load balance, high availability). There is no such feature currently in EnGarde.
10. Improved "Auditing" part. GUI is really too simple.
11. Full Backup/Restore: Why not backup/restore complete system into one ISO image file like MkCDrec? http://mkcdrec.ota.be/
12. More user friendly GUI for Shorewell firewall. I saw some people have problems with it. It can come with Firewall backup/restore, testing, and more detail information in current setup.
13. Integrated Spam/Virus scanning with Postfix service and in GUI setting.

I evaluated many products and still like EnGarde most, although I do many personal customized settings myself. All above are my changes after I installed EnGarde.
Again, I do like EnGarde, not complain above, and hope it's getting better and better!

Regards,

Hsinan
