|Zimbra Collaboration Suite:
|Zimbra Connector for Outlook:
|A fix in 8.8.11 that prevented unwanted duplication of attachments came with a side-effect bug that suppressed the display of inline PDF attachments sent from Apple Mail clients. This has been fixed.|
|Calendar||The Quick Add or New Event dialog always pre-selects the user's Default Calendar from preferences when creating a new event. This occurs even when the user is viewing only one of their available calendars; in that case the expected behavior should be to pre-select that calendar, not the user's default.|
|ZCO||GAL synchronization message now properly reports progress expressed as progress / total items.|
|ZCO||The Add Share button is hidden for ZCO users who do not have Sharing enabled (i.e. zimbraFeatureSharingEnabled is false).|
|NG Mobile||Hidden folders and their contents are skipped during synchronization. Previously, such folders caused synchronization to fail.|
|NG Backup||Missing Blob errors will only be logged once, mitigating a problem that caused mailbox.log to grow exponentially and stop smartscan from completing.|
|Zimbra Docs||Documents shared in Read-Only mode can now be edited only from the authenticated owner's account.|
|Zimbra Drive||Files contained in Drive will now remain accessible in ReadOnly mode if the license expires.|
|Zimbra Drive||On multiserver, downloading a drive folder as zip would sometimes result in a corrupted zip file. This has been fixed.|
|Zimbra Drive||Fixed a bug that blocked the viewing or editing of share information when a file or folder was shared with a distribution list.|
|Zimbra Drive||After user's computer resumed from "sleep", Zimbra Drive would often show errors The server is off-line or I'm thinking. Now when the websocket connection has been closed, the client tries to reopen it at increasing time intervals, to ensure Drive reconnects.|
|Zimbra Talk||After a video call ended, the webcam may have remained active. The video stream is now reliably terminated when the call ends. Workaround for earlier versions is to refresh the browser if the webcam activity LED remained on past the end of call.|
|Zimbra Drive||Documents stored in briefcase or Zimbra Drive that have very long names are opened in view-only mode. To work around this, shorten the filename on the document.|
|Contacts||Hierarchical Address Book (HAB) is supported in English only. Support for additional languages will be provided in an upcoming patch release.|
|Zimbra Drive||If you used Zimbra Drive v2 (Beta) prior to its Stable release, we advise you to clean up the Beta database before proceeding.|
|ZCO||Older versions of the Outlook Connector for Zimbra (prior to Version 8.8.10) do not detect versions 8.8.10 and higher, so users will receive no notification that an upgrade is available. End users are recommended to initiate a manual upgrade to this version of the connector.|
|ZCO||Dumpster feature is supported in English only. Support for additional languages will be provided in an upcoming patch release.|
|IMAPD was released as Beta with Zimbra 8.8.5, and has not been released as Stable. It has been deprecated.|
|ZCS Migration Wizard for Exchange is supported only for PST file import, with End of Technical Guidance set for 31 December 2020. We recommend Audriga's self-service migration solution as a preferred alternative for all account migrations.|
|ZCS Migration Wizard for Domino is now deprecated.|
|ZCS Account Migration within the Zimbra Admin UI is no longer supported, with End of Technical Guidance set for 17 December 2019.|
|Zimbra Classic HSM, Classic Backup, and Classic Mobile are deprecated and will be removed in the next release of Zimbra 8.8. Installations that have not yet migrated to new Network Edition NG Modules or ZSP are encouraged to do so.|
|Zimbra Desktop is no longer supported, with End of Technical Guidance set for 1 October 2019.|
|Zimbra Touch Client is now deprecated.|
|Zimbra Mobile Client is now deprecated.|
|HTML Client is no longer supported, with End of Technical Guidance set for 1 July 2022.|
