Topic: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Dear all,

iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released.

Here's major changes since iRedMail-1.4.2.

Supports new distribution release:
  • OpenBSD 7.0

DROPPED distribution releases for NEW iRedMail installation

Dropping support here means we don’t allow NEW iRedMail installation on them, but all existing iRedMail servers running on them are still actively supported.

  • CentOS 7, CentOS 8. Please use CentOS Stream 8 or Rocky Linux 8 instead.

    • CentOS 7 is too old.

    • CentOS 8 is end-of-life after Dec 31, 2021.

  • Debian 10. Please use Debian 11 instead. Debian 10 enters LTS on July 2022. "Debian LTS is not handled by the Debian security team, but by a separate group of volunteers and companies interested in making it a success."

  • Ubuntu 18.04. Please use Ubuntu 20.04 instead. Users chose 20.04 more than 18.04, so better just let it go.

Improvements
  • Nginx: Greatly improve the performance of keep-alive connections over SSL by enabling `ssl_session_cache`. Thanks to @ludovicandrieux.

  • Nginx: Enable TLSv1.3 by default. Thanks to @ludovicandrieux.

  • Nginx/Dovecot: Add new ssl cipher: EECDH+CHACHA20, remove weak one: AES256+EDH. Thanks to @ludovicandrieux.

  • Postfix now enables smtps (port 465) by default.

  • Fail2ban: Add one more rule to catch auth error in Postfix log file.

  • SOGo is now available on Debian 11 (bullseye). Thanks to SOGo team.

Fixed issues
  • Updating password in Roundcube may fail with error `Encryption function missing`.

Updated packages
  • Roundcube webmail -> 1.5.1. Note: PHP 5.5 or later is required.

  • mlmmjadmin -> 3.1.3

  • netdata -> 1.32.1

  • iRedAPD -> 5.0.4

  • iRedAdmin -> 1.6

  • [OpenBSD] fail2ban -> 0.11.2

  • [OpenBSD] uwsgi -> 2.0.20

Introduce "iRedMail Easy" - the new deployment, upgrade and support platform

iRedMail Easy is the new web-based deployment, (one-click) upgrade and technical support platform introduced few months ago, we release new version frequently (currently one new release per month), with the one-click upgrade support, you can easily keep the iRedMail server up to date without caring about any technical details. It's the recommend way to deploy NEW iRedMail server and get technical support.

For more details, please check our website, the comparison of iRedMail Easy and classic downloadable installer is available too: https://www.iredmail.org/easy.html

If you need to upgrade existing iRedMail server to the iRedMail Easy platform, please check our tutorial: Migrate from iRedMail to iRedMail Easy platform.

Introduce all-in-one Dockerized iRedMail

We have built an all-in-one Dockerized iRedMail, get it here:
https://hub.docker.com/r/iredmail/mariadb

  • Only MariaDB backend is available right now.

  • Based on Ubuntu Linux (20.04) docker image, all components in one container.

  • SOGo groupware is not yet included.

It's not considered as production ready, please don't run it on production
server now. Feedback, suggestions are all welcome. smile

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Hi,

It would have been nice to have a heads up about dropping support for Centos 7. It still has 2 more years of security support from the Centos project. I have 4 servers running iredmail. 2 of them have paid iredadmin-pro subscriptions.

So suddenly, I cannot run the latest version of Iredadmin-pro?

What is the problem with Centos 7 besides "Too old"?
I disagree about it being too old. It still works just fine and I, like I am sure others need time to do that kind of upgrade.

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Agree with iredmailtnt.  CentOS 7 is a stable and awesome distribution; it has years of life left.

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Oracle Linux 8 can be added to the list of supported distributions, I had no issues installing 1.4.2 and upgrading to 1.5.0 on Oracle Linux 8.5. I just did a test to see if it would run on Oracle Linux as that's what we use at work (it is publically available BTW). :-)

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

I do not agree , CentOS 7 is NOT too old.., is stable/save ..etc...

sad

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

So sorry about the confusion.

Dropping CentOS 7/8 here means we don’t allow NEW iRedMail installation on them, but all existing iRedMail servers running on them are still well supported.

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Hi @ZhangHuangbin and others,

for the SSL Cipher list and other SSL settings, I would suggest using a brilliant tool from Mozilla https://ssl-config.mozilla.org/

Just make sure to set the environment version numbers correct based on your setup and probably best to still use the intermediate configuration type.

The current (1.5.0) Cipher list for Nginx still has weak cipher suites, but using the tool above you can get the most secure ones set up.

Once you have done the changes and restarted Nginx, check the status using https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/index.html

Below is a screenshot of the final secure Ciphers.

Also note that you can use the same tool for Dovecot SSL settings.

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Be aware that new SSL setting knocks out the old Outlook 2013 (connected via Sogo EAS). Don't know exactly which setting, but I had to reverse all SSL settings in Nginx. Maybe someone will hit the same situation, please let us know.

How's about Ubuntu 18.0.4 - or better, is there a doc  for upgrading to Ubuntu 20.x?

Re: iRedMail-1.5.0 has been released

Hello,

I'm new here. I guess i found a problem.

I have tried fresh install with İredmail 1.5.0 but there is no SOGo option on fresh install. (Not docker version)

Screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/KTuObyM

I have tried On Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Rocky Linux 8. Both of them have the same problem.

Is it normal ? Am i missing something ?

Thank you.
