Rocket.Chat at Simulakrum

Users in the appropriate group in Simulakrum directory can use Rocket.Chat now. Rocket.Chat works from within a browser, and allows for very fast and quality multi-user video-conferences, desktop display, and many other useful functions. It is using a jitsi-based server in the background.

Rocket.Chat is the second multi-user video-conferencing tool available for Simulakrum – HipChat, the Atlassian’s proprietary commercial solution that integrates well Jira and Confluence, is also currently available at Simulakrum’s. Ask for the access to those tools if you don’t have the access already.

Simulakrum moved from OpenBSD’s OpenLDAP 2.3 to a fancy CentOS’ 389 DirectoryServer. Let me know if your account is not working.

Password manager is upgraded to a recent snapshot of 1.8, and there is no more a possibility of self-served adding to the LDAP.

Owncloud moved from ownCloud 8 on Fedora 22 to Owncloud 9 on CentOS 7. Let me know if there are things missing.
