Superb Mini Server, a Linux operating system based on Slackware 13.37 and manageable through the Webmin web-based interface, is now at version 2.0.1.

Albeit Superb Mini Server 2.0.1 is just a minor release, there are a few updates that warrant an immediate update, such as the new Linux kernel 3.2.33.

Besides this important difference, server packages have been updated to the latest stable versions and smsconfig was added, a powerful script for managing services, resetting passwords and performing various tasks.

Highlights of Superb Mini Server 2.0.1:

• The new packages added in this version are QPDF (a command-line program that does structural, content-preserving transformations on PDF files), a dependency of cups-filters, lightsquid (a light and fast squid report generator), and php-suhosin (php security extension), which is disabled by default;
• The SMS.Native.CD-Extra.iso contains new packages such as php_suhosin, a php built with suhosin-patch. It's recommended to remove the php package before installing this version, in order to maintain the correct package information;
• A pasture directory was added with the packages, in the SMS.Native.CD-Extra.iso. It was available as a slapt-get repository, but since the directory was too small, it was transferred to the image;
• The packages in pasture are now seamonkey-solibs, lm_sensors and rpm;
• gcc-java package is back in SMS(64).Native.CD-Install.iso;
• "kernel-source" and "llvm" have been added to the SMS(64).Native.CD-Extra.iso;
• Installer now creates an initial ramdisk image (intrd.gz) and applies it to "lilo.conf", if a generic kernel is selected during install;
• Samba was upgraded to version 3.6.9;
• git was upgraded to 1.7.12.1;
• Dovecot (Secure IMAP and POP3 server) was upgraded to 2.1.10;
• Clamav antivirus was updated to version 0.97.6;
• Perl was updated to version 5.16.2;
• webmin was updated to version 1.600.

A complete list with all the changes and updates can be found in the official announcement.
