These package addresses the following issues:


5106R-CMU 2.81:
==============

This RPM installs CMU 2.81-0BX01 and should - finally - wrap up the issues 
that we had with this RPM during the last two weeks.

The BlueQuartz PKG (it's really only needed on BlueQuartz - not BlueOnyx!) is 
available here: http://www.blueonyx.it/index.php?page=migration-utility

Please note: Starting with version number 2.81 this PKG also installs an RPM 
that ties your server into a special YUM repository for future CMU updates. 
That YUM repository will only contain updated CMU versions for BlueQuartz and 
nothing else.


blueonyx-yumconf:
===============

This RPM contains the BlueOnyx YUM repository config file. Starting with this 
version number it also contains /etc/yum.repos.d/0_WARNING.txt, which includes 
prominent warnings that discourage usage of third party YUM repositories such 
as RPMforge.


base-apache:
===========

The GUI page for "Server Management" / "Network Services" / "Web" has been 
updated with new features.

Screenshot available here: 

http://www.blueonyx.it/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=34&cntnt01origid=59&cntnt01returnid=54

With those changes it is now possible to configure the Apache config file 
/etc/httpd/conf.d/blueonyx.conf to furter define which Apache Options and 
AllowOverride directives are valid for the directory /home/.sites.

Typically .htaccess files in /web directories are prohibited for security 
reasons, as these can be used to re-define or override certain Apache 
configurational settings. To allow .htaccess files in general one would use 
the new GUI and would tick the box for "AllowOverride" / "All".

If you already modified your blueonyx.conf file by hand: Don't worry. Existing 
modifications will be imported.
