In July of last year, we announced Zimbra Collaboration 8.7, which included four of my favorite, admin-related features including Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), a new Zimbra Packaging System, SSL Server Name Identification (SNI) and Zimbra Postscreen.
Today, I’m thrilled to announce our first minor release of 2017: Zimbra Collaboration 8.7.2, please go to the Downloads page to grab it. We have also a beta for Zimbra Collaboration 8.6 Patch 8 which you can download and install by contacting Support, if you need it, please go here to obtain more information about how to reach Zimbra support.
We are working behind the scenes to make many changes to Zimbra; one of these changes is that we are moving to more frequent release process for bugs and patches. One of our goals for 2017 is to have more frequent releases, to fix more bugs, and to fix bugs faster. We are really happy to have this release acceleration in place and we’re looking forward to your feedback on our more frequent release approach!
