Today we released the final version of Zarafa 6.30.3.

Some backward-compatibility fixes have been added for better Outlook XP and Windows 2000 support.

6.30.3 also introduces two new server-side options; one for the spooler to automatically file 'send-as' or 'delegate' messages into the owner's 'sent items' folder, and the other to completely disable viewing the global addressbook. This enables system administrators to set up single-user accounts easier amongst others.

A problem with Blackberry Enterprise has also been addressed in which the attendee list of meeting request grew larger on each change to a meeting request, and various fixes have been done in the zarafa-ical server for client compatibility and recurring items.

The full changelog is available here:

Note: Since 6.30.2 final (the previous version) the binaries for SLES 10 are only valid on SP2 upgraded systems. To correctly install these versions of Zarafa on SLES 10, make sure you upgrade your installation to SP2 with the latest patches.
This is because Novell decided to add an update of PHP in SP2 which changes the major version (from 5.1 to 5.2). PHP has strict checking for modules and the correct ABI version. The Zarafa PHP extension must be compiled for the correct major PHP version to be loaded by PHP.

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