These package addresses the following issues:

5106R-CMU:

This RPM installs CMU 2.81-0BX01 and should - finally - wrap up the issues that we had with this RPM during the last two weeks.

The BlueQuartz PKG (it's really only needed on BlueQuartz - not BlueOnyx!) is available here.

Please note: Starting with version number 2.81 this PKG also installs an RPM that ties your server into a special YUM repository for future CMU updates. That YUM repository will only contain updated CMU versions for BlueQuartz and nothing else.


blueonyx-yumconf:

This RPM contains the BlueOnyx YUM repository config file. Starting with this version number it also contains /etc/yum.repos.d/0_WARNING.txt, which includes prominent warnings that discourage usage of third party YUM repositories such as RPMforge.


base-apache:

The GUI page for "Server Management" / "Network Services" / "Web" has been updated with new features:

With those it is now possible to configure the Apache config file /etc/httpd/conf.d/blueonyx.conf to furter define which Apache Options and AllowOverride directives are valid for the directory /home/.sites.

Typically .htaccess files in /web directories are prohibited for security reasons, as these can be used to re-define or override certain Apache configurational settings. To allow .htaccess files in general one would use the new GUI and would tick the box for "AllowOverride" / "All".

If you already modified your blueonyx.conf file by hand: Don't worry. Existing modifications will be imported.
