This release of 7.2.5 has the primary focus on improving stability, security and better compatibility with certain e-mail objects.
Next to that, as an important update ZCP 7.2.5 now officially supports the use with the latest Kopano WebApp and its plugins.
Enhanced iCal handling, Meeting request fixes
When an iCal object was preceded by other body text parts, the iCal description has overridden all these bodies. Also, we've previously been picking the first STD/DST timezone definition found,
which was wrong because time zone definitions can change over time. With certain formats of meeting requests, attachments have not been stored when being accepted which has been fixed.
Python-Zarafa, Backup and Search improvements
In the past, words such as "cheese_cake" have not been split up both at index and search time, and therefore searching for just "cake" returned no results, for example. With ZCP 7.2.5 the underscore is used as a separator and therefore it can be found now.
Python-Zarafa has received many stability updates, resulting in an overall improvement (stability and functionality) for all python-zarafa based services such as Kopano Search or Kopano Backup.
With ZCP 7.2.5 we've fixed some SSL related problems as well, by example we now also recognize subjectAltNames in used SSL certificates.
This release has received a vast (>50) amount of fixes, mainly focused on better memory management and enhancement of code segments (generally resulting in better performance and higher stability). For exact details on changes, please check the official changelog.
When can I get a 7.2.5 final?
