Zimbra Collaboration Kepler 9.0.0 Patch 7 GA Release

Check out the What's New, Fixed Issues, and Known Issues for this version of Zimbra Collaboration. Please refer to the Patch Installation section for Patch Installation instructions. As always, you are encouraged to tell us what you think in the Forums or open a support ticket to report issues.


What's New

Date based data sync for New Profiles in ZCO

Users can now synchronize the last < N > days of Inbox and Calendar data during IntitalSync.

Following are the newly introduced registry keys and the values for them can be set using ZmCustomizeMsi.js:

  • Computer\HKEY USER\SOFTWARE\Zimbra\CalCutoffDays < N > DWORD
  • Computer\HKEY USER\SOFTWARE\Zimbra\MsgCutoffDays < N > DWORD

Where <N> is the last number of days, the default value without customization is 0 which means complete intitalSync without any cut-off days

NOTE: Given Fix is applicable to InitalSync so that we need to create a new ZCO profile. It does not apply to existing profiles. Also, it applies only to the primary store and not to a delegated Inbox.

Briefcase

  • Folders created by Users will be displayed in the document list along with files. Users can access these folders by double-clicking on them.


Mail

  • "Empty Folder" option to delete all the contents of the folder is now available in right-click context menu of custom and system folders.
  • Icons will be displayed when User's forward or replies to a message.
  • Pop-ups in Modern Web App can be closed using the ESC key.
  • Users can move messages using keyboard shortcut. The M key can be used to perform move operation.
  • Zimbra Cloud specific User's Guide is now available and can be accessed from Gear Icon -> Help
  • When the preference to get new emails was set as "As new mail arrives", the app used to do periodic refetch of search and/or conversation query for the selected folder at every one minute. That has been updated with the NoOpRequest implementation now, which does long polling on the backend and gets the updates for the user about new emails and renders them in the list, without doing a refetch. So users would see the new emails instantaneously, without waiting for one minute refetch. Also it is helpful to reduce the backend traffic in a larger setup.


ZCO

  • Users can now synchronize the last < N > days of Inbox and Calendar data during IntitalSync.
  • Localization is available for new features like Free-Busy, Run Rule Now, Send the signature picture as attachments.

Fixed Issues

Zimbra Collaboration

  • Fix for additional quota counted multiple times.
  • When accessing the shared Calendar using CalDav in MacOS, Users received an error and were not able to access the shared Calendar. The issue has been fixed and no errors are seen now.
  • Fixed issue getting "service.INVALID_REQUEST" while checking grants of a domain admin using getAllEffectiveRights
  • Backup files of messages were generated even after the User's quota is exhausted. The issue has been fixed and the messages are no more backed up.
  • Improved server-to-server connection handling so that no connection errors or missing ABQ data is seen.
  • Hostname checks are no longer case sensitive for the list of users mobile devices in the web admin panel, this would fix the issue where the admin was not able to edit accounts

Modern Web App

General

  • After setting up a domain disclaimer, emails sent using Modern Web App do not display it. The issue has been fixed and the domain disclaimer is correctly displayed.


Calendar

  • When a user is, "proposing a new time" for an event, an incorrect warning message "Changes that you make apply only to your local copy of the appointment. Changes made by the organizer will overwrite your changes." was being displayed to the user. After this fix, the incorrect warning message is no longer displayed when proposing new time for an event.


Briefcase

  • When Hi Fidelity Document preview is enabled, then to preview word(doc, docx,odt), powerpoint (ppt,pptx), and excel (xls, xlsx) files, the admin needed to set the attribute zimbraFeatureViewInHtmlEnabled to TRUE. The attribute no longer needs to be set to TRUE to preview these documents.


Classic Web App

  • Chinese language support can be enabled for HAB. Execute following command as zimbra user:
    • Set OS locale - export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
    • Restart the services - zmcontrol restart
  • For some emails, unknown text/html attachments were getting added when replying/forwarding. The issue has been fixed.
  • In Conversation view, Webex invites display large blank space in the body. The issue is fixed and the invite is displayed correctly.
  • For Taipei (Taiwan) timezone, the date format was not displayed correctly. The issue has been fixed.
  • In Classic UI, for email received from, performing certain keyboard sequences like hitting backspace, the mime was getting modified. If we sent that email to Outlook user, a blank email was displayed. The issue has been fixed and the mime is no more tampered.

  • Bug preventing files revisions' metadata to be created in backup fixed
  • A better warning is returned in the web admin console if there are issues with the backup directory (backup damaged, disk full, etc)

  • Fixed a bug that prevented the completed tasks to be correctly synchronized via EAS.
