Lysithea is the latest entry in our quarterly rollup series. It branches off from our main rolling Voyager development, into a fixed target for our partners to qualify and build upon.

Comet Lysithea takes its name from another moon of Jupiter — it was discovered by Seth Barnes Nicholson in 1938, and is named after Lysithea, one of Zeus’ lovers.

Lysithea brings 10 features and 15 enhancements, including a new Getting Started guide for first-time Comet Server admins; the ability to codesign macOS client software installers without requiring SSH access to a macOS system; the addition of Amazon AWS and custom IAM-Compatible storage providers as Requestable storage targets; improvements to bulk upgrade campaigns and the Bulk Replace Addresses page in the Comet Server web interface; Synology improvements (including support for Synology devices with Armada CPUs); and more. All users of the previous quarterly series 22.2.x ‘Elara’ and earlier are encouraged to upgrade. We strongly recommend that users of versions older than 22.2.1 ‘Elara’ upgrade, as 22.2.1 contains an important security bugfix.

As always for a new quarterly release, there are two changelogs for 22.5.0 ‘Lysithea’ depending on whether you are coming from the previous quarterly or the previous Voyager.

Changes compared to 22.2.1

New Features

  • Option to codesign macOS client software installer directly. When this option is enabled, Comet Server will perform macOS codesigning locally, without requiring SSH access to a macOS system.

  • Added a new Getting Started guide which walks new Comet Server admins through the first steps of running a Comet Server, from adding their first user to downloading and installing the Comet Backup desktop client to running a backup job. This guide appears the first time an admin logs into a new server and can be dismissed at any time.
