Today we released Zarafa 6.20.6.

This new version has improvements and fixes, like:
-Added fields in Global Address Book in Webaccess.
-Gateway fixes and improvements.
-Libvmime update.

Zarafa 6.20.6 beta1 and beta2 shipped with a bugfixed libvmime-0.7.1-25 package that fixed a certain possible crash with highly multi-threaded
applications. Though this fix worked, it also created an ABI (binary) incompatibility between other libvmime packages that zarafa has shipped in the past. Also, the zarafa packages shipped in beta1 and beta2 were only binary compatible with libvmime-0.7.1-25, and incompatible with previous versions.

Since it is bad practice and to ship binary-incompatible packages with only minor version changes, Zarafa has decided to re-release 6.20.6 beta2 as
6.20.6 beta3 (which became the final version) with the libvmime-0.7.1-26 package which fixes the same problem, but this time in a binary-compatible way. To sum up, zarafa 6.20.6 beta1 and beta2 ONLY work with libvmime-0.7.1-25, while ALL OTHER zarafa packages DO NOT work with libvmime-0.7.1-25

You can download this version from the Zarafa site or via the Zarafa Partner Portal.
