What's New

Security Fixes

Summary CVE-ID CVSS Score Zimbra Rating Fix Patch Version
Third party vulnerabilities in JQuery 3.4.1 CVE-2020-11022 CVE-2020-11023 6.5 Medium 8.8.15 P16

As of Patch-16, Zimbra has moved all the charts on the Administration Console from Flash-based technologies to pure JavaScript based ones. This was done as support for Flash is being sunsetted. All the charts should seamlessly work as before while not needing the Flash Player.

Zimbra Collaboration

  • Added the Roboto Font to Docs
  • Upgraded libreoffice component to version 4.2.6

Zimbra Connect

  • Instant messaging interface now has Turkish translation
  • A message is clearly shown when instant messaging is not possible due to connection issues
  • When a new instant meeting is created while another one is running all fields now appear empty
  • It is now possible to edit the user status and unset the avatar picture in the instant
  • Fixed the behavior of the instant meeting that enabled the webcam after a screen sharing session during an instant meeting even if it was disabled before starting the screen share session

NG Modules

  • Earlier, the Administrator has to set a mobile password using Admin Console for all the users. This functionality will now be available to users in the Classic Web App under the Mail -> Zimlets section. Users can now set mobile passwords using the Zextras Auth zimlet. Users will have an option to create a password using plain text. The administrator can still continue to set the mobile password by using the new command-line utility zxsuite auth credential. Please refer to the Patch Installation section for installing this zimlet.


Fixed Issues

Classic Web App

  • When Users expanded/collapsed the folders, the zimbraFeatureOptionsEnabled setting was not taken into consideration. The issue has been fixed.
  • In Message View, if the email has a lot of attachments, the scroll bar was not appearing to view the message body. The issue has been fixed and the scroll bar correctly appears now.
  • For the Classic Web App, Offline mode is no more supported for Chrome versions 85 and above. Users can still continue to use Offline mode in previous browser versions.
  • When using the Safari browser on MacOS, the search box was missing for online help. The issue has been fixed and the search box is now displayed.

Zimbra Collaboration

  • Administrators can now restrict the end date on Calendar Events where users do not use any end date. This is done by setting zimbraCalendarRecurrenceDailyMaxDays/Weeks attributes in the backend. Please see the user manual for more details
  • In RHEL8, /var/log/zimbra.log & /var/log/zimbra-stats.log were not getting rotated after logrotate service ran. The issue has been fixed.

HSM

  • Improved s3 code to reduce the number of http(s) calls to a minimum

NG Modules

  • Improved logging of account deletion operation that caused non-relevant lines to be logged when backup service is running but not initialized
  • Added support for backup to external volume
  • Fixed the value of the backup export directory returned in the operation log mail received by the administrator
  • A more readable error is returned when a restore is attempted specifying a date from before the account was first backed up
  • Added Connect backup disable option
  • Improved logging of account deletion operation that caused non-relevant lines to be logged when backup service is running but not initialized
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent the mobile section of the web admin console to show the list of mobile devices
  • Improved behavior of mobile module that now predictably uses the main address as sender when personas are configured
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent calendar syncronization if a location was set and some fields were not compiled
  • The mobile password management has been removed from the Admin GUI to be compliant with the new multiple mobile password management.
  • Added support on Mobile for accounts having custon zimbraID uuid
  • Fixed an issue coming while 7accepting an appointment via Exchange ActiveSync, its date and time changed to the ones of the acceptation

Zimbra Drive

  • Fixed an issue that would cause an error to be returned when opening the link of a public shared object
  • Fixed an issue that would rend impossible to users to upload files to drive in a shared folder located on a different host
  • Improved Drive version list so that if a user that edited a file is deleted now "deleted user" is listed in the versions list

  • Added Drive maintenance mode handling


Known Issues

  • None



Patch Installation

Before Installing the Patch

Before installing the patch, consider the following:

  • Patches are cumulative.
  • A full backup should be performed before any patch is applied. There is no automated roll-back.
  • Zimlet patches can include removing existing Zimlets and redeploying the patched Zimlet.
  • Only files or Zimlets associated with installed packages will be installed from the patch.
  • Switch to zimbra user before using ZCS CLI commands.
  • Important! You cannot revert to the previous ZCS release after you upgrade to the patch.
  • Important Note for ZCS Setup with Local ZCS repository: Customers who have set up local ZCS repository should first update the local repository by following instructions in wiki
  • Please make note that, installing the zimbra-patch package only updates the Zimbra core packages.
