Update: pykolab 0.8.17

We’re pleased to announce an update for the pykolab packages, version 0.8.17.

This update is a bugfix release for Kolab 16, available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, CentOS 7, Debian 8, Debian 9, Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04

The following issues are fixed:

  • Increase compatibility with Debian 10’s stock Cyrus IMAP package:
    • Adding a setup option –mysqlhost,
    • Adding a setup option –mysqlrootpw
    • (This is preparation for future compatibility with Debian 10)
  • Ensure a missing setting isn’t treated as a string
  • Set default value of –max-tasks to None, which effectively makes pool workers work forever.

Kolab has an option to automate this feature, so that organizations can be assured that rules and appliance are followed.
