Below you can see the 5 most recent changes to Uberspace 7. For older changes, please refer to the Changelog Archive.


Sometimes the version shown on your host may be higher than the newest version here. In this case we might have applied additional fixes shortly after a release or did internal changes without user impact. We deem updates like these hotfixes and they are not necessarily included in this changelog.

[7.14.1] - 2022-11-29


  • In preparation for the pending deprecation of PHP 7.4 (probably in the next Uberspace release, scheduled for December), we set the PHP version for everyone running 7.4 to 8.0. Until we roll out the deprecation you can still move back manually, (i.e. to fix things and prepare for the version update).

[7.14] - 2022-11-21


  • Erlang/OTP version 25.

  • Ruby version 3.1.

  • MongoDB 6.

  • Development files for lua 5.3.

  • New tools: cmake3, gojq, gum, ldapvi, oauthtool, pdftk, s3cmd, usql.


  • We disabled the penalty system in Dovecot, which should result in faster SMTP AUTH connection times.

  • If a user service is missing a startsecs setting, we add startsecs=30, to prevent endless loops, caused by broken services.

  • rust-analyser is now part of the “user versioned tools”, meaning you can run it, without using the full path to the executeable.

  • Updated htop to 3.2.

  • The default PHP version was increased to 8.1.


  • The Rust language server rls is deprecated (but the rust-analyser is availabel).

  • Ruby 2.5 and 2.6.

  • MongoDB 4.

  • removed cityfan YUM repository

[7.12.3] - 2022-07-14


  • new command: uberspace web traffic to check the used web traffic.


  • we now reject mail where the IP/rDNS or HELO name do not match.

[7.12.2] - 2022-05-23

🌱 Spring cleaning: this release we were mostly busy updating and polishing internals, e.g. our CI pipeline and container images. We also took first steps towards a new metric and alerting system. Nonetheless we also have a couple of user facing features for you.


  • Python 3.10 and a preview for 3.11.

  • New tools: ranger, oauth2-proxy, mtail and chromium-headless.

  • Even more metrics to play with in the future.


  • Sieve vacation autoreplies should now work. You can see our mail filter documentation for an updated example.

  • When you authenticate with SMTP, we implement penalties for failed attemps (further ones are delayed). Because our authentication backend used the proxy’s IP (which is the same for all users), not the one for your connection, you could be affected by penalties caused by other user’s failed login attemps. This is now fixed.

  • You can now use the ErrorDocument directive in .htaccess files.

  • Dovecot can now correctly handle mailboxes containing colons (:), i.e. automatically clean their spam folder.
