ZCP 7.1.8 beta 1 and ZWS alpha 2

October 10, 2013 by Suyi  

Dear Zarafa administrators, users, engineers and fans,


We are proud to announce the immediate availability of ZCP 7.1.8 beta 1. Next to this exciting release, we’ve also released an updated Zarafa client fixing the additional Microsoft Outlook 2013 compatibility. In this announcement, you can find more information regarding the newest releases. 


Introducing Zarafa Web Services (ZWS)
Alpha packages available in first beta release 7.1.8

We are very proud to announce the availability of the Zarafa Web Services alpha 2 release on our portal (available to European partners). In this alpha 2 we resolved a couple of dependency issues.

The 7.1.8 also brings the following changes:

- We resolved a zarafa-gateway segfault on POP3 access.
- We received reports from users on the forums that there is currently a bug in the Lightning addon (in versions 2.0b1 and later) for Thunderbird which prevents you from accessing your calendar. For more details please refer to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=918899. This is in the lightning code and unfortunately other groupware also suffers from this change.

We will write a blog post where we update you on fixes in the upcoming beta’s. Stay tuned.

Updated Zarafa client
Updated version of Zarafa client enables additional compatibility with Microsoft Outlook 2013

This maintenance release of the Zarafa Client is a preparation for the expected Microsoft Outlook update. Luckily, Microsoft did not yet pushed this update automatically. This updated Zarafa client restores your additional compatibility with MS Outlook upfront. We advise you to roll-out this client as soon as possible.
