The Zimbra Next Generation Modules Client Zimlet

Along with the huge changes and improvements for all existing modules featured in Zimbra Next Generation Modules 2.0, a new component called "Zimbra Next Generation Modules Client Zimlet" has been added to Zimbra Next Generation Modules.

Features

The Zimbra Next Generation Modules Client Zimlet is more than a simple Zimlet: it's an evolving tool that will be expanded and extended over time to provide the best Zimbra experience possible to end users.
