UCS 4.4-6: Sixth point release for UCS 4.4 available

Univention is pleased to announce the availability of Univention Corporate Server (UCS) 4.4-6, the sixth point release of UCS 4.4. It includes all errata updates issued for UCS 4.4-5 and provides various improvements and bugfixes especially in the following areas:

  • Improvements in user self management via the Self Service App. The Self Service App displays predefined texts to the user, e.g. when resetting the password. Administrators can now adjust the contents of these texts. Newly registered users are activated as soon as the user’s e-mail address has been successfully verified. This behavior is disabled by default. With this option it is possible to run a UCS with Self Service Module where users register themselves and use their user account after successful validation of the email address.

  • App Center: Custom hook scripts for administrators. UCS system administrators can now store their own scripts on a UCS system with apps that are executed by the App Center for a post-installation, update or uninstallation. This allows e.g. recurring manual steps after an app update to be automated, e.g. adapting an app to individual conditions. Example: The subsequent installation of fonts in the installed Office App or the copying of an own SSL certificate into an App.

  • UCS Portal: Warning about outdated and no longer supported browsers. A warning is displayed to a user when logging in to the UCS management system if an unsupported browser, such as Internet Explorer 11, is used. The warning can also be activated for the portal.

  • Improvements in product stability. Memory Leak in UMC Server fixed. Among other things, this caused the user self service in larger environments to stop working when changing their password until the UMC Server was restarted. Observed crash behavior of the LDAP server in connection with the ppolicy overlay module was fixed. The UDM REST API can now handle umlauts in the URL of an API call. Expired user passwords can now be reset directly in the Single Sign On login window.

  • Various security updates have been integrated into UCS 4.4-6, e.g. QEMU, bind9, den Linux Kernel and PHP.
