We will release version 20.1 of EGroupware on
12. August 2020
The cumulative release notes of the previous pre-releases have already been published:
New features, preferences or other important things (since release) of EGroupware 20.1
The actual detailed release notes for 20.1 are in progress and will be published here as soon as possible.
In a standard docker installation, the 20.1 container is automatically imported. The associated packages must be imported manually (if not automated). This is also the case for maintenance releases.
If the automatic update to 20.1 is not wanted, the update to 20.1 can be prevented respectively the system can be set to 19.1.
The following is the documentation:
The update to 20.1 is a two-step process, both steps must be disabled to keep the system at 19.1:
The update of the egroupware-docker package must be prevented in the repository configuration file:
In the file (where the repo is entered), for example:
comment out the line with the repo with a #:
# deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/server:/eGroupWare/xUbuntu_18.04/ /
must be set enabled=0. For example:
Secondly, the version of the docker container must be set to 19.1. The tag
:latest' (thus always installs the version marked as latest) is changed to:19.1’ in the configuration file. This will not update to 20.1, but will still install 19.1 Maintenance Updates.
To do this, you must edit
and change the der tag :latest to :19.1
The indentations per space must NOT be changed!
Without these two changes, at least the container update will take place directly with the release of version 20.1!
The fourth RC is currently available for testing:
