packet radio network for emergency response and public service. The
network's back end is powered by Linux and the Citadel open source
Subject: Outlook connector for Citadel is now available!
I have some good news to share with everyone.
Bynari has officially released the new version of their Outlook connector that supports the open standard data formats used by Citadel. What this means in practice is that you can use this product to fully connect Microsoft Outlook to your Citadel server -- mail, calendars, tasks, address books ... it all works.
Go here to learn more or to get your own copy of it:
* This room (CitaNews) is now available as a mailing list, to which you may subscribe.
* I wrote a nice little document tonight that neatly summarizes the rationale behind the Citadel user interface model. It's a good read for people who don't grok the whole rooms/floors/goto thing, and think that the conventional folder model is "the only right way." Read it at http://www.citadel.org/doku.php/faq:generalquestions:terminology

Subject: Citadel 7.35 release notes
Subject: 7.35 .deb upgrading
Since the 7.35 webcit package uses the debian libjs-prototype package, it won't upgrade unless you directly tell apt to do so:
apt-get install citadel-webcit
This is due to the bugfixing our debs which are about to enter Debian Lenny; Sorry for inconvenience.
Subject: Good news on Citadel + Fat client Integration
I'd like to tell you that two fat clients interoperate better thanks to our (social & patch sending) activities:
Icedove/Thunderbird + Iceowl/Sunbird + SyncKolab fixed to work with citadel (daves Effort)
(you might want to read http://www.citadel.org/doku.php/faq:favoriteclient:using_your_citadel_calendar_and_contacts_in_thunderbird for detail )
I triggered Carsten at the debian Groupware meeting to fix Kontacts IMAP/ACL troubles:
Which fixes troubles with offline Imap and Kolab1 Protocol in KDEPim too.
So Both Products will better integrate with Citadel in their next releases.
Subject: openssl package weak in debian etch and Ubuntu
If you've installed Citadel on an debian Etch or Ubuntu system, you should recreate citadels SSL keys.
This is nessecary via both installation methods; Easy install and .deb
For details see
apt-get update; apt-get upgrade
(this should bring you a new openSSL library )
(deb) rm -f /etc/ssl/citadel/*
(easy install) rm -f /usr/local/citadel/keys/*
and restart citadel to make it generate new keys.
If you've signed keys by an authority, you need to recreate and sign them too.
Note that you most probably will have to accept this new key at the clients.
Also note, that this does allso affect the private key from your SSH server and DSA private keys for SSH public-key authentication (if you didn't already know)
Subject: Bad News -RIP Maid Marion
For those who were part of the Citadel scene durring the 90's, perticularly in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, you may remember Maid Maion. Yesterday I received a call from Tigress letting me know that she had passed. She had been fighting cancer for many years and it got the best of her. She leaves behind a 4 year and many friends and family. I will post more details about the arraingments when I get them. As far as I understand, the service will be in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area on Monday.
It's always a wakeup call when a young person passes from such a vicious killer!
RIP - Maid Marion!
The debian repos are back online again.
Sorry for inconvenience.

Subject: MyCastleWall back up.
We took a bit of damage from a near direct lightning hit last Monday while I was on the road. One router and firewall replacement later and we're back in business.

Anyone else notice this on LinuxToday:
LinuxPlanet: "Citadel is 100% GPL, and doesn't play games with making either binary or source downloads easily available. If I had to describe Citadel in a word, it would be "simplicity". It is a complex application with a lot of power and flexibility, but it's easy to install and administer."
