Is there a release date for Mailinabox based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on the horizon…?
Should I wait for it or will there be an easy way to upgrade the base system Ubuntu 14.04 with an Mailinabox v0.28 installation to the bionic version if it will be released?
Thanks for this concrete dates and publishing your plan regarding Ubuntu18.04 and Mailinabox. Last question: will there be an easy official way to migrate if I now setup Mailinabox on Ubuntu 14.04 and want to switch to 18.04 without loosing mails and data? Or should I wait till 18.04 is the recommended and stable OS base?
Second, I need to setup a new machine (for a long-term deployment) and so it should be the Bionic Beaver 18.04 using the ubuntu_bionic branch for now.
Do you plan to make the upgrade path for the master (currently the Trusty) to 18.04 so that the current “on trial” working Bionic installations would be seamlessly taken over by the new master branch?
I simply cannot afford to fully provision and setup some key machines now and then take them offline and do the backup > full new install > restore > checks … procedure in 1-2 months from now.
@JoshData is there any end in sight or at least a GitHub Milestone of some kind that we can follow that might be able to paint a picture for a timeline my very brittle unsupported 16.04 version finally melted and I really would love to have a functioning 18.04 installer.
Seems that the git branch ubuntu_bionic and that really does not install so I don’t really know what’s next.
