Hi fellow Zentyal users,

We're glad to announce the availability of a new beta installer, Zentyal 
2.1-2! Please note that this is the last beta version: from July to 
September we'll publish a series of release candidate versions and in 
September the next stable release (Zentyal 2.2), will see daylight.

This installer contains all the improvements and bugfixes done since the 
release of the previous beta installer (2.1-1 ), but it also comes with 
the first previews of three fully new modules: PPTP, Captive Portal and 
VM Management. Please note that these modules are still under 
development and they may be in alpha status. No need to say that the 
modules are not intended for production environments, but we wanted to 
make them available ASAP in order to start getting feedback from you.

You can download the new installer for 32 and 64 bit architectures from 
our Beta Downloads page [0]. You can also install the 2.1 packages on an 
existing Ubuntu Server 10.04 following the instructions at our 
Installation Guide [1]. Users who already have a 2.1 installation, don't 
need to use the installer, just make sure to upgrade to the latest 
versions of all the available packages.

A quick note about the VM Management module:

We have developed two different backends to manage VirtualBox and KVM. 
KVM is going to be the default option, but the development of the 
VirtualBox backend is more advanced. If you want to test it, just remove 
the libvirt package and install the virtualbox package (sudo apt-get 
remove libvirt-bin && sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose).

Please remember again that 2.1 is a beta version and it is not intended 
for production environments. As usual, if you have a spare testing 
server or a VM, you can help us a lot by reporting any problem you 
encounter or simply by giving any feedback or ideas. With your 
collaboration and help, we have no doubt that 2.2 will be the best 
Zentyal release ever!
