Deprecation of Zimbra Server on Ubuntu 14.04, Oracle Linux 6 and CentOS/RHEL 6

With a number of supported operating systems entering the end of life, Zimbra will deprecate all Zimbra versions for Ubuntu 14.04, CentOS 6, Redhat 6 and Oracle 6 as of July 31, 2021. At this date, there will no longer be any patch release for 8.8.15 and 9.0.0 on these operating systems.

  • Ubuntu 14.04 end of life occurred on April 30, 2019
  • CentOS and RHEL 6 end of life occurred on November 30, 2020
  • Oracle 6 End of life occurred on October 2020

After July 31, 2021, Zimbra Support will provide best-effort support for the last patch release on the listed operating systems. However, any known or existing bugs will not be addressed and Zimbra Support encourages all customers to follow our recommended upgrade path to a supported OS version at your earliest convenience to ensure no interruption in your support services.

For more information about the direction Zimbra is taking with supporting future operating systems please check our blog.

For questions or guidance with upgrading your operating system please open a support case and our Support team is here to assist you.

Fixed Issues

Web UX - Classic

  • The Conversation view was not being displayed correctly in Firefox. This is now fixed.
  • We had a bug that distorted the Zimbra skin. It lead to distortions on the login page. This is now fixed.

ZCO

  • A warning message is shown to the user when they change the ZCO Advanced Settings. The user needs to restart Outlook for the changes to take effect.
  • If network connection was lost when HAB Synchronization is in progress, the synchronization process didn't exit gracefully. The issue has been fixed to handle such situations gracefully.

NG Auth

  • It is now possible to disable the domain warning if zimbraPublicService values have not been set.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the arrow keys not to work in the "Password Label" field when creating a new Auth password.

NG Modules

  • Improved the output of doRestoreOnNewAccount operations, now if a non-existing source account is specified a correct output is returned
  • Added a workaround to fix an Outlook for Mac bug that causes recurring appointments to be created with bad recurrence metadata and thus not to sync to mobile devices via EAS.
  • i18N updates in NG Core modules

Zimbra Connect

  • Improved the edit function for messages in Connect that increases the editing section.
  • Placeholder page on instant meetings loaded on mobile browser
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent the administrator to add space owners.
  • Improved the arrangement of images when replying to 1:1 conversation or group messages, now the list is no longer reversed
  • i18N updates in Connect module
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the initial "Microphone/Webcam" modal to remain open when joining an Instant Meeting as an external guest.
  • It is no longer possible to forward forwarded messages in groups/spaces/channels and 1:1 conversations
  • Messages forwarded in conversations/groups/spaces/channels now show who wrote the message even if the sender is not a contact.
  • The Quick Access sidebar in the "Mail" view, which showed the most recent conversations and allowed to start chats, has been removed.
  • When using instant messaging functions it is now possible to copy the zimlet version just by clicking it.
  • Refactored Connect UI components to be more streamlined and usable
  • Connect information panel layout has been refactored to improve usability

Zimbra Docs

  • Docs documents are now opened in a new browser tab for improved usability

Zimbra Drive

  • i18n Updates for Zimbra Drive.

HSM

  • Improved the volume removal check so that when a volume is removed the system will check only once if there is data on that volume.


Known Issues

  • None


Patch Installation

Please refer to the steps below to install 8.8.15 Patch 19 on Redhat and Ubuntu platforms:

Before Installing the Patch, consider the following:

  • 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
