Webmin version 1.620 and Usermin version 1.540

Howdy all,

Webmin has been updated to 1.620 and Usermin to 1.540 in all repositories.

Changes in Webmin since 1.610:

  • Norwegian updates, thanks to Stein-Aksel Basma, Catalan updates, thanks to Jaume Badiella, German translation updates, thanks to Raymond Vetter, and Polish translation updates from Piotr Kozica.
  • Fixed an XSS attack in miniserv error messages, and added an option to disable SSL compression to defeat the BEAST attack.
  • The LDAP attribute userPassword for users and groups is no longer set if not needed.
  • Bridges not connected to any interface can be created in the Network Configuration module.
  • Webmin scheduled functions can now be viewed and run in the Webmin Configuration module. Also fixed a problem in which a long-running function could prevent Webmin from restarting.
  • Init scripts that hang forever when asked for their status will no longer hang the UI in the Bootup and Shutdown module.
  • Added a form in the Webmin Configuration module for testing mail server settings.
  • Added BTRFS support to the Disk and Network Filesystems module, and removed some obsolete filesystems.
  • Improved support for FreeBSD 9 and 10 in the Apache and filesystems modules.
  • Support for custom quota files in the Disk Quotas module.
  • Handle the case where the root filesystem is on /dev/root (as seen on CentOS 5.9) in the Disk Quotas module.
  • Added links from the System Information page to relevant modules, and a display of CPU and drive temperatures.
  • Improved detection of in-use ports when changing the Webmin port.
  • Added XZ compression format support in the Filesystem Backup module.
  • See the github commit log for more.

Changes in Usermin since 1.530:

  • German, Catalan, Dutch and Polish translation updates.

As always, let us know if you run into any problems.

Hi Joe,

Great news !

But FYI Webmin version 1.620 and Usermin version 1.540 are not yet in the Pro and GPL repos of Ubuntu 12.04LTS repos.

Running latest 1.610
Running latest 1.520

Missed a step in the manual deployment ? :wink:

(btw any way to automate all of your builds with ant/phing/make/Jenkins ?)

Best Regards,

Yes, I’m noticing that they are not yet in the 10.04 repos yet, either.

Is there a way to manually upgrade these? I need the beast attack stuff for a PCI scan.



Could you make those updates available to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS repos?

Step to reproduce issue:

  1. Under “Virtualmin Package Updates” click on “Refresh Available Packages”
  2. The most up to date available Webmin version in the repo is Webmin 1.610. Expected result is to be able to update to 1.620
