WebApp 2.2.0 Release Candidate 1 is available!

April 22, 2016 by Bob Huisman   Comments (0)

We’ve set a goal to make communication easier and faster, while providing a more enjoyable experience for the user. WebApp 2.2 introduces a new, modern look & feel which enables users to handle their communication from a single interface, that which brings us closer to that goal.

Earlier this month we released the second beta for WebApp 2.2, marking the feature completeness of the new WebApp. It introduced an improved search toolbox, WebApp theming as well as ‘basic shortcuts’ and a lot of other features. Today we announce the availability of WebApp 2.2 release candidate 1, the last step towards the final.

Important notification on PHP compatibility

Last year we shared that WebApp 2.2 or newer will require at least PHP 5.4 to be installed on your servers. At that time, this meant that support for Red Hat / CentOS 6 and SLES 11 SP3 would no longer be available.

We are happy that today we get to share some good news on that topic:. with the release of ZCP 7.2.3 we introduced support for ‘Software Collections’ (SCLs) on RedHat / CentOS 6 and 7 as well as support for the ‘server:php’ repository available for SLES 11 SP3 users. Please note that if you want to use the SCLs or ‘server:php’ repositories you will need to make some configuration changes to the configuration of your package manager. For more details read the ZCP 7.2.3 final release announcement.

Path to the final release

We’ve received quite a few responses to the beta package from our partners as well as the community. Some of the issues that have been reported in the past few days have been resolved in this release candidate, resulting in a stable product. We expect to be able to rebrand this RC into a final soon.

Please update plugins and DeskApp

The new authentication framework that was introduced in beta 2 also required changes in some plugins and DeskApp. This means that you will also have to update these applications if you have not done so already – the plugin packages have been made available at the same location as WebApp and the new version of DeskApp can be downloaded from the portal.

Where can I download the packages?

The packages are available for download from the download server. A changelog is also available.
