Karoshi 5.2 BETA - Available
We have a BETA of Karoshi 5.2 out today(www.karoshi.org.uk), it has the new fantastic.....Web Management! This new system not only makes Karoshi easier to use, but allows you to manage your system across the Internet. Karoshi has also been fully updated with the latest software, and we have removed unneeded items and questions that were asked within the installation, hopefully making it quicker to install.
As I said this is a BETA, the final release will have more functions and features added to the web management, Zimbra as an email/groupware option and it will be fully tested.
Karoshi is an operating system designed for schools, it was originally created to replace RM systems with a Linux alternative. It has been designed not only for schools with techies, but those who are still being looked after by teachers too. Main aims at the moment are to keep the system interface simple to use but to widen the features available, to make sure that no scripts, consoles etc are needed to run the network(but not so locked down that people who want to play can't) and to improve the installation so that it is quicker and easier to install by non-Linux users.
Even if your not interested in a move to Linux and/or Karoshi we would still be grateful if you test for us, all you need is one machine, doesn't have to have a net connection can be stand-alone for testing purposes, unless you want to join a Windows Client to it as well. Email us responses/problems/ideas and we will try and get them into the final release.
