What's New

ZCS Zimbra Classic now has an updated OpenSSL version (OpenSSL 1.0.2t-fips).
ZCO Documentation has been updated to reflect currently supported platforms. Note that Windows 7 is officially End-of-Life as of January 2020, so ZCO support on that OS has ended as well.
ZCO When creating server rules using Zimbra Connector for Outlook, users can now have the options - "Delete It" and "Delete permanently" - for emails matching the defined criteria.
ZCO Earlier when creating rules, selecting a condition, and moving to the next screen, users sometimes encountered errors. This issue is now fixed.
Zimbra Docs Documentation has been updated to reflect currently supported platforms. Note that Windows 7 is officially End-of-Life as of January 2020, so is no longer supported by Zimbra.

Fixed Issues

ZCS Users were unable to collect logs using `zmdialog` after updating to 8.8.15 Patch5 and saw an openJDK error. This issue is now fixed.
ZCS Changes introduced with iOS 13 have modified the behavior of IMAP sync from Apple devices. Those devices now sync all folders continuously, which impacts the mailbox process performance.
ZWC Fixed a bug in the Admin Web Console to ensure that Class-of-Service Retention Policy changes are properly applied to the selected COS. Previously, changing these values for successive COSes would cause the first selected COS to be updated with changes intended for the later COS.
ZWC With a Japanese language preference set, the expected Firstname Lastname order was not preserved when contacts were added from .vcf attachments that were forwarded as email attachments. Such contacts now have their "FileAs" option set to ensure the surname appears first.
ZWC When users deleted or renamed a contact group, the contact list view did not update to reflect the changes. This issue is now fixed.
ZCO Ensured that shares that have been previously mounted will not be remounted when the owner's account has an alias.
ZCO Contact group members of groups imported from PST files would not be populated because the referenced contacts were not known to Outlook. It that situation, such members are now imported as inline contacts and will sync to the Zimbra server.
ZCO Contact group members that were added to a group by selecting a contact's _alternate_ email address would not sync to the Zimbra server. Such members are now converted to inline group members upon synchronization.
Zimbra Connect Contact auto-complete had used GAL contacts only, requiring full email address to be entered to initiate conversations with other contacts via the "Speak to your friends" textbox. All the users' contacts are now used.
Zimbra Docs The current cursor position in a document being edited is now retained when the user navigates to other tabs and then returns.

Known Issues

Zimbra Connect Beginning in 8.8.15, Chat History is ID-based instead of email-based: if a mailbox is deleted and then a new mailbox with the same email address is created, the history of the old mailbox will not be available to the new mailbox.
