BlueMind 3.5.9

BlueMind 3.5.9 has just been released!

Plenty of novelties for our collaborative messaging solution:
monitoring stack, expanded distribution support, along with the
customary bug fixes and enhancements.

Warning: new permissions and BlueMind upgrade

New permissions have been added to BlueMind 3.5.9: “mobile sync”,
“outlook sync” and “thunderbird sync”. These permissions are set on
the default user group during the upgrade.

If your configuration does not make use of a default user group, or if
some users don’t belong to this group, il will be necesssary to set
these permissions manually after the upgrade

We strongly recommand using a default user group.


Upgrade is performed with the bm-setup-wizard tool if you have a
BlueMind subscription. You have to migrate your data manually



Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) and Debian 9 (stretch) are now supported.


A brand new monitoring stack has been integrated to BlueMind, see the
overview in our

This TICK stack (Telegraph, InfluxDB, Chronograph, Kapacitor) is not
installed by default. Caution: if some of these tools are already
present on the server, they will be replaced by the BlueMind

Subscription format (for our partners/customers)

The subscription format has evolved into a binary archive (bmz
extension), which can now be installed on any supported distribution
(subscription files used to be distribution-specific).

Hoster report add-on (for our hoster partners)

The reporting API has changed: you need to upgrade the hoster report
after you upgrade
your servers to BlueMind 3.5.9.
