Appreciate the short release cycles. However what I noticed (and strongly dislike) is the advertising for the business features.

It's particularly annoying:
- In the package manager. On the left column one can select "free features" and the right column shows a huge block "for business customer only".
- In the NavBar under Reports, the first dropdown option is "Reports (OTRS Business Solution)" with the popup kindly reminding you to check out the paid features.

As for the last part, it's simply enough removed when one deletes this block from the Framework.xml:

Code: Select all

                <NavBar>
                    <GroupRo>stats</GroupRo>
                    <Description Translatable="1"></Description>
                    <Name Translatable="1">Reports (OTRS Business Solution™)</Name>
                    <Link>Action=AgentStatisticsReports;Subaction=Overview</Link>
                    <LinkOption>class="OTRSBusinessRequired"</LinkOption>
                    <NavBar>Reports</NavBar>
                    <Prio>100</Prio>
                    <Type></Type>
                    <Block></Block>
                    <AccessKey></AccessKey>
                </NavBar>

The block with the "Business solution feature addons" can be switched off in the SysConfig as well: Package::ShowFeatureAddons

Hi,

the beta2 is on the download server. Without release notes? What is new/fixed?
Or is the function of the beta2 the same as beta1?

    Will it be also released for OTRS appliance?
    I'm wondering this because the OTRS appliance is still stuck to OTRS 4.0.8 but the stable version is at 4.0.11

    Will it be canceled as the windows' one?

    There are several reasons for not providing an appliance any more. You can use a managed system or a self hosted linux instead.

    Windows will not be possible any more for OTRS5 due to changes in the backend which require a UNIX based OS

    Hi,

    thanks for the link of the release notes to beta2. I wonder, why I did not find it (I really tried hard!) :D
