Version 1.6.3

ZeXtras Suite

Highlights

This is an "improvement" aimed release that also fixes some rare issues experienced by our users. Updating as soon as possible is highly suggested.

As you can see the package has significatly shrunk in size thanks to some optimizations to the file structure, but the ZeXtras Chat core is still there! The first betatest round is rolling, if you want to apply please email community@zextras.com including the "[ZxChat Beta]" tag in the subject of the email. Please specify your Zimbra version and remember that while this is a fairly stable build, it's not meant to be installed on a production environment.

General Zimbra 8.0.1 is now officially supported. If you are running Zimbra 8.0.1 or plan to update your current Zimbra server to such version you need at least ZeXtras Suite 1.6.3.

ZeXtras Backup

  • Tags are now properly restored when migrating from Zimbra 6 or Zimbra 7 to Zimbra 8.
  • The data about Distribution Lists membership is now stored together with the account data. Distribution List Membership is now restored by both External Restores and Restore on new Account operations.
  • The last step of both Export and *Scan operations now saves a copy of the Zimbra customizations applied on the server along with the server config.
  • The new "VirtualAccount" mailboxtype is now correctly backupped and restored. Virtual Accounts are considered as system accounts and are not included in the "Your Mailboxes" count.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause some folders to be restored with the wrong flags (specifically, the "i" flag was added), preventing the proper display of nested shared folders.

ZeXtras Mobile

  • Fixed a bug that could cause personal appointments to be displayed as "invite" appointments on iOS6 devices.

ZeXtras Powerstore

  • Fixed a bug that could cause the default HSM policy not to be editable.

ZeXtras Migration Tool

  • No relevant fixes

Version 1.6.2

ZeXtras Suite

Highlights

This is a "bugfix" aimed release that fixes some pesky issues experienced by our user. Updating as soon as possible is highly suggested.

You might have notice that the size of the ZeXtras Suite package has increased significantly. This is because the ZeXtras Chat core has been added! The core itself remains dormant until activated, and the proper ZeXtras Chat zimlet must be installed to provide the user interface to the chat system. If you want to betatest the ZeXtras Chat, please email community@zextras.com including the "[ZxChat Beta]" tag in the subject of the email. Please specify your Zimbra version and remember that while this is a fairly stable build, it's not meant to be installed on a production environment. We are working to optimize the size of the package, so expect it to become lower in the next releases :)

General

  • The user experience for Multiserver environments has been improved.
  • Yet another batch of improvements to the ZeXtras CLI.

ZeXtras Backup

  • Thanks to a library change (and the code optimization performed accordingly) the performances of many ZxBackup operations have been improved.
  • ZxBackup's Operation Queue has been slightly changed to be more readable.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the creation of a "ghost" tag when migrating from Zimbra 7.x to Zimbra 8.x
  • Fixed a bug that could cause missing account properties when migrating from Zimbra 6.x and 7.x to Zimbra 8.x
  • Fixed a bug that could cause missing account properties when migrating from Zimbra 8.x to Zimbra 8.x if the source server's original version was 7.2.0 or lower.
  • Fixed a bug that caused "Alias" Domains to be restored as regular domains.

ZeXtras Mobile

  • Improved "Push" folder management to better handle some rare synchronization issues.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause appointments to which the user has been invided not to appear on Windows Phone 7 clients.
  • Added a workaround for an issue affecting several Android clients that caused some line breaks to be missing in received emails.

ZeXtras Powerstore

  • Improved HSM policy management through the ZeXtras Administration Zimlet
  • Fixed some minor issues on ZxPowerstore when running on Zimbra 8.x

ZeXtras Migration Tool

  • No relevant fixes

Version 1.6.1

ZeXtras Suite

Highlights

This is a "bugfix" aimed release that fixes some pesky issues experienced by our user. Updating as soon as possible is highly suggested.

Also, the ZeXtras CLI received a mayor overhaul on both usability and feedback. Now running a ZxCLI command without arguments will display a complete list of possible arguments, both mandatory and optional, with a brief description of the argument, its type and any useful information.

General

  • The "View Mail" button is now also visible on the "Account Search" and "Alias" views.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a valid license file not to be uploadable in a Zimbra 7.2.x server running ZeXtras Suite 1.6.0.
  • Improved installer packaging, now the size of the installer is smaller and should grow less when support for a new Zimbra version is released.
  • Several UI improvements on the ZeXtras Administration Zimlet.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a javascript error when dealing with Classes of Service.

ZeXtras Backup

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Undelete Restore operation not to correctly restore all emails.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a wrong flag to be set on folders during an import making subfolders of shared folders not visible by the target account.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a "Null Pointer Exception" error when importing an account with no COS.

As usual, please sanitize your data with Zimbra's own "zmblobcheck" and "zmdbintegrityreport" utilities before exporting to minimize the chance of import errors.

ZeXtras Mobile

  • Invitation managment has been improved so that accepted invitations are not displayed anymore after an action has been taken.

ZeXtras Powerstore

  • The "Set Current" option is now greyed out on Current volumes.

ZeXtras Migration Tool

  • The "Start Migration" button is now correctly displayed on Zimbra 8.x


Version 1.6.0

ZeXtras Suite

Highlights

This is the first version of ZeXtras Suite compatible with Zimbra 8. Version in the 1.4 and previous branches - both Stable and Beta - cannot be installed on any Zimbra 8.x release.

As usual, make sure you download and install a proper version of the package if you run or plan to upgrade to the latest available Zimbra version.

The "This version cannot be installed on Zimbra 8" nag message displayed in the ZeXtras Administration Zimlet has been removed.

Also, a "View Mail" button has been added for all those Zimbra versions lacking it. It's enabled by default and it's not bound to any particular product, meaning that it will work even if you don't have a valid license installed!

ZeXtras Backup

  • The "Import Version" limitation added in the 1.5 Beta Branch has been removed. This means that it is now possible to import data exported from Zimbra version 6.x and 7.x to Zimbra 8.x. Importing data to Zimbra 8.x doesn't require any specific additional operation.

Please sanitize your data with Zimbra's own "zmblobcheck" and "zmdbintegrityreport" utilities before exporting to minimize the chance of import errors.

ZeXtras Mobile

  • Added a workaround that allows calendar invitations with a badly formatted email address to be correctly displayed on all mobile devices.
  • Internal testing along with user feedback reports that the serious synchronization issues experienced with the email client installed on all Samsung devices (and some Motorola devices like the Razr Maxx) running Anrdoid 4.0.3 are solved in Android 4.0.4. We strongly suggest to update to Android 4.0.4 to greatly improve the usability of your email client.

ZeXtras Powerstore

  • The default value for "Compression Thereshold" has been set to 4096 bytes. This means that items which size is lower than 4096 bytes will not be compressed when being moved to a compressed datastore.

ZeXtras Migration Tool

  • Due to the removal of the "Import Version" limitation added in the 1.5 Beta Branch, data exported with ZeXtras Migration Tool from any Zimbra version can be imported to Zimbra 8.
