Final buildnumers sometimes other then latest Beta

January 3, 2013 by Remon van Gijn   Comments (0)

, , , ,

At times from internal or external people we get the question why the build numbers deviate between the latest build and the latest beta.It would be good and pure practice to only promote released Beta's to Finals, from a release perspective. But on the other hand releasing a Beta + the usual grease period would again mean a delay for usage of the large amount of fixes in the release being deployed. And what is it we change after a beta that causes the rebuild?Being a progressive company, and... Read full post

We have just released 2.0.4 final which contains an important fix related to meeting requests.
We recommend the immediate update, as all meeting requests accepted or edited with 2.0.3 result in a wrong organizer which has major impact on the calendar and future actions.
More information is available in the Zarafa Alerts section and the Zarafa Forums.
Z-Push 2.0.4 can be downloaded here.

Outline 2012

This is a bit of an off-topic post.
I have been involved in something called the demoscene for a pretty long time now. The demoscene is a collection of computer artists, being creative in music, graphics and programming. These people come together now and then in something called a demoparty. For the untrained observer it looks a lot like an LAN party; lots of people crammed into a single space, all staring at screens. The big difference with a LAN party is that, actually, the LAN isn't used... Read full post

Hi all,
