Refer to Upgraded 3rd Party Packages section for details.

Hierarchical Address Book (HAB) in ZCO

The Hierarchical Address Book (HAB) allows users to look for recipients using an organizational hierarchy. Zimbra HAB configuration needs to be done at the server-side. Please refer to the wiki for information about HAB setup.

Refer to ZCO user guide for more details on the feature.

Partial/Customised Sync in ZCO

One of the problems faced by users of Zimbra Connector for Outlook (ZCO) has been the fact that all data from the server is synchronised on the client machine where Outlook is installed. This means that the client machine needs disk space and resources to manage this data. The Partial/Customised Sync feature helps address this problem, by removing data older than the number of days configured by the use. This feature, when enabled, will move Mails, Tasks & Calendar items that are older than the days provided by user to a folder called Zimbra Trash, which is a subfolder of Trash.

Refer to ZCO user guide for more details on the feature.

ZCO

  • The Hierarchical Address Book feature is now available in Zimbra's Connector for Outlook. Please refer to the user guide for more details.
  • The Partial Data Synchronization feature is now available in Zimbra's Connector for Outlook. Please refer to the user guide for more details.


Fixed Issues

Platform

  • In Thunderbird, when a user configured his IMAP account and accepts an Inbox folder share from another user, the contents of the shared folders were not visible. The issue has been fixed.

NG Auth

  • Improved the examples returned by the zxsuite auth commands that now use generic names like domain.com and organization.name
  • Improved the output of the commands zxsuite auth, now returned dates are no longer in epoch format
  • Improved zx auth saml commands, all is now the default key value
  • Changed the default output format of zxsuite auth saml get that is no longer json
  • Improved the auth backup behavior, now credentials are added to the backup by the real time scanner instead of just the daily operation
  • Improved the output of the commands zxsuite auth, now returned dates are no longer in epoch format

NG Modules

  • Backup can now handle the change of the backup path without restarting the mailboxd.
  • Improved the placement of bucket cli commands that are now under zxsuite core
  • Improved the logs for restoreonnewaccount operations that no longer list entries regarding the delegated admin function, since those settings are not restored with this option.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent mobile devices from syncing shared folders
  • Fixed a bug that made the description of an appointment to be cleared on accepting it via Exchange ActiveSync.
  • Now the synchronization of the devices via EAS do not break when a message cannot be parsed by Zimbra.

Zimbra Connect

  • Text of long forwarded instant messages is no longer cropped making it easier to read
  • It is now possible to scroll to the original message by clicking on the text attached to replies to instant messages
  • Tooltip text is now returned when the cursor is hovering over the Team section of the menu


Known Issues

ZCO

  • Outlook may go in non-responsive state for a few minutes while opening HAB Group node that have more than 5000 accounts.
