What's New

NOTE: Beta features are not supported and should not be installed on production systems. Beta modules have been provided for evaluation in lab environments only.

ZCS Administrators may disable login via account aliases through a local config value. First change the setting:

zmlocalconfig -e alias_login_enabled=false Then restart the mailbox server.

ZCS The Zimbra Admin Guide is available in Japanese for 8.8.12 and 8.8.15.
ZWC Incorporated several fixes provided by the community: A fix for Bug 98570 ensures that the "arrange by day" boundaries adapt to Daylight Savings Time. Another fix addresses a potential TypeError in ZmComposeView.prototype.enableInputs. Thank you to our contributors!
ZCO To align with the Out of Office message options available through the Web interface, ZCO now supports excluding replies for external users.
ZCO Run Filters is now supported. The user may select any Zimbra Email Filter to run on-demand. Feedback is provided while the rule is run on a selected folder.

Note: The filter is run on the Zimbra server, so the client must be online, and changes for affected messages need to synchronize to the Outlook client before they are visible.

ZCO ZCO Database Automatic Compaction: To maintain performance, large databases will automatically be compacted to resolve fragmentation and reduce size.
ZCO The location for ZCO documentation has changed. If you had bookmarked zco-docs, update your bookmark to point to zm-windows-comp.
NG Backup Added a new force_as_external_restore option to the External Restore feature to improve Disaster Recovery usability.
NG Backup Improved Backup Purge to ignore errors triggered by the original item having an invalid locator field.
NG Mobile
  • The EmptyFolderContent EAS command is now only supported for the /Trash folder.
  • Improved the compatibility with Blackberry UEM.
Zimbra Docs The Zimbra Docs Zimlet has been translated, and now supports 12 locales/languages: German, English (GB), English (US), Spanish (Spain), French (France), Italian, Japanese, Dutch (Belgium), Dutch (Holland), Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), and Russian.

Fixed Issues

ZCS Fixed a potential NullPointerException that could occur when handling password change requests.
ZCS <img> tags that were being removed following the OWASP upgrade are now retained.
ZCS The Forgot Password link would not appear when zimbraFeatureResetPasswordStatus was enabled.
ZCS Ensured that all attributes for a domain get removed from LDAP when the related domain is deleted.
ZWC Fixed a bug that resulted in a JavaScript console error when deleting populated optional fields while creating a new contact.
ZWC In the Admin Console, the setting for zimbraLdapGentimeFractionalSecondsEnabled is now accounted for when showing zimbraCreateTimestamp, zimbraLastLogonTimestamp, zimbraVersionCheckLastAttempt, and zimbraVersionCheckLastSuccess. Previously, those values were truncated at the second.
Zimbra Drive Fixed a bug that could cause documents saved to Drive from an email to become uneditable by Docs.
Zimbra Drive Zimbra Drive would display a "Wrong Server" warning for users in a multi-node environment unless they were hosted on the proxy node. This was fixed by ensuring that proxy configuration files are properly generated on all nodes at startup.
Zimbra Connect Fixed a bug that could cause the "Conversation Created" message to be misplaced.
HSM Fixed a bug that could increase disk usage during the HSM operation.
HSM Applying the HSM policy when the source volume contained Drive files reported filename errors in the log and did not move Drive files
HSM Improved performance of the HSM policy application when policies only contain time-based and/or size-based rules.
