    Cool ZCP 7.1.8 beta 1 and ZWS alpha 2

    Dear Zarafa administrators, users, engineers and fans,

    We are proud to announce the immediate availability of ZCP 7.1.8 beta 1. Next to this exciting release, we’ve also released an updated Zarafa client fixing the additional Microsoft Outlook 2013 compatibility. In this announcement, you can find more information regarding the newest releases.

    Introducing Zarafa Web Services (ZWS)
    Alpha packages available in first beta release 7.1.8

    We are very proud to announce the availability of the Zarafa Web Services alpha 2 release on our portal (available to European partners). In this alpha 2 we resolved a couple of dependency issues.

    The 7.1.8 also brings the following changes:

    - We resolved a zarafa-gateway segfault on POP3 access.
    - We received reports from users on the forums that there is currently a bug in the Lightning addon (in versions 2.0b1 and later) for Thunderbird which prevents you from accessing your calendar. For more details please refer to . This is in the lightning code and unfortunately other groupware also suffers from this change.

    We will write a blog post where we update you on fixes in the upcoming beta’s. Stay tuned.

    Updated Zarafa client
    Updated version of Zarafa client enables additional compatibility with Microsoft Outlook 2013

    This maintenance release of the Zarafa Client is a preparation for the expected Microsoft Outlook update. Luckily, Microsoft did not yet pushed this update automatically. This updated Zarafa client restores your additional compatibility with MS Outlook upfront. We advise you to roll-out this client as soon as possible.

    Hi Benjamin,

    for the moment you have to force the install of the zarafa-ws package because of this overlapping files (dpkg -i -- force-all) this is already fixed for the next alpha release.

    Hi Felix,
    thank you very much for your reply. It works!
    I installed the zarafa-ws and configured my macbook with the exchange server. Now I'm able to access my zarafa server but I can't see the existing mails in my INBOX. If a new mail arrives this mail is visible. The mails in the subfolders are visible too.
    With the contacts app it's the save behavior. New contacts are visible, existing not.
    Have you any hint for me?

    Thanks a lot.

    Is ZWS planned to be available for all users eventually? Will there be any restrictions or caveats around accessing this?

    I'm keen to try ZWS but I'm not a partner - so I'm curious to know if I'll be able to use it at some point in the near future.
