UCS 5.0-8 has been released

With Univention Corporate Server 5.0-8, the 8th point release for Univention Corporate Server (UCS) is now available.

UCS 5.0-8 provides several feature improvements and extensions, new properties as well as various improvements and bugfixes. Here is an overview of the most important changes:

  • With the launch of Univention Nubus we introduced new icons and logos for Univention Products. The corresponding components within UCS receive a visual update, clearly presenting their affiliation with Univention’s Identity & Access Management Nubus.

  • A new repository signing key has been added in preparation for UCS 5.2.

  • Apps provisioned through the Univention Directory Listener mechanism process incoming changes using a file-based queue. With the update to 5.0-8, it is now possible to monitor the current state of the app queue, if the App Center mechanism is used, to identify and diagnose potential processing errors via system diagnostics.

  • The RADIUS server now supports different MAC address formats for the MAB (MAC Authentication Bypass) feature.

  • Enhanced UMC stability and performance for handling numerous simultaneous logins.

  • UCS 5.0-8 includes various security updates, for example for BIND9, docker, OpenJDK-11, PHP and the Linux kernel.
