Zarafa Collaboration Platform 7.0.15 final and 7.1.6 final

September 20, 2013 by Suyi  

Dear Zarafa users,


We are proud to announce the immediate availability of ZCP 7.0.15 final and 7.1.6 final releases.


This release is a maintenance release. This release has its focus on supporting new environments as well as resolving customer reported issues. With this release we officially support Windows 8 with the newest Outlook versions to date. Additionally, this release is the first to officially support MySQL 5.6 as new database version and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2/SP3 with PHP 5.3. Please note that with this and upcoming releases support for SLES 11 SP0 and SP1 are dropped, as they do not provide PHP 5.3-based packages. We also introduced a new technique to eliminate forwarding rules to generate mail loops. Updates and fixes to utilities such as MSR and zarafa-set-oof have been included as well.


We recommend any installations to be upgraded first to either SP2 or SP3 prior to upgrading to this or later versions.


With 7.1.5 we have introduced the new DoS protection mechanism to block IMAP clients which are recurringly hitting zarafa-gateway after 20 failed IMAP commands. The new "imap_max_fail_commands" parameter has been introduced, which allows this setting to be set higher during migration scenarios.


For all changes in the releases please check the change logs:
