Release Notes for Alpine 1.7.12
Alpha Web Interface
For the first time on a long time alpine ships with testing packages for the upcoming web interface. Nathan, Mika and Andreas have made a great work.
To try it out, run setup-acf to install the base. The setup-acf also accepts the following options:
-a Install all available acf's -d Install devtools
The acf-devtools will give you a web interface to the svn repository so you easily can follow the development of the web interface.
There are 2 skins shipped. Default is none for some reason (its alpha) but its easy to change by clicking on the "skins" link and then select "use this skin".
Note that login manager and ssl is still missing so this should only be used for testing purposes in trusted networks.
Alternative Syslogger Added
The sysklogd package was added to be an alternative for the previously removed syslog-ng. Nathan replaced 75 rows perl code with 7 rows shell (yay!) and fixed the log rotate script. Thanks to this, sysklogd don't depend on perl or debianutils.
