This version has been released on Sunday, March 8, 2020.
This version is considered a feature release. We’re excited about this release as it not only includes some awesome new requested applications and features and tweaks along with the usual maintenance, but we’re especially excited that this marks the end of our thorough and exhaustive website redesign and gets us back on a solid schedule.
As many of you know, we recently did a massive overhaul to our site. This was to not only make things shiny, it was to bring forth the information, communication, and the community that we are to an easier accessible and more transparent state of delivery. We’re excited about the new site, and excited to be back on schedule, but along with this release comes the start of revamping and building onto our current Knowledge Base.
Without getting carried away on that as we’ve an article (more like a novel) planned for that. Here’s what you can look forward to in this release!
Applications (the long awaited ones) are finally here!

Per user shell environment assignment.
It was requested that Admin/Super Admin be able to assign users to specific shells. Owing to the fact that some system administrators are running servers with trusted users and there are no security concerns with granting access to the
/bin/bash or even
sudo privileges. Well we’re happy to say the ability to add on a per user basis to an assigned shell environment is here!
Along with this feature you’ll notice we’ve done a little redesign to the users Edit Account page.
So what do these options mean?
- sudo – Grants the user full sudo access. This is complete access to the total server.
- full – Grants the user access to the /bin/bash environment for the ability to run more complex commands and navigation, but without the access to the entire server.
- limited – This is the default shell environment for all users that are not Admin or Super Admin. Users created will automatically be assigned this shell.
