    ZeXtras Suite 1.99.x - Info and feedback

    Hello everybody!

    I'm glad to announce that ZeXtras Suite 1.99.2 has been released!

    This post is meant to be a haven for all ZeXtras Suite 1.99.x testers, in which you can report issues and discuss this new release.
    You can find log of all changes happening between beta builds below in this post, while the "rolling" ZeXtras Suite 2.0.0 changelog can be found here.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Shared Folders are now synchronized to mobile devices via ZeXtras Mobile!
    • 1-to-1 video calls are now available in ZeXtras Chat!
    • XMPP Transparent Proxying: It's now possible to set up XMPP clients to connect to any mailbox server on the infrastructure, instead of being restricted to the user-spedific one.
    • ZeXtras Client Zimlet: a new client component has been added to ZeXtras Suite!
    • ZeXtras Backup's "External Restore" has been optimized in order to significally improve import times. Faster migrations!
    • Multilanguage ZeXtras Administration Zimlet - now available in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian (translators and proofreaders are welcome, drop me a PM if interested).
    • New "Client error debug" option in ZeXtras Chat, to easily report client issues!


    DOWNLOAD LINKS
    The download link can be found in the "Download ZeXtras Suite" page of the ZeXtras Website. (Direct Download)
    This beta stage does not include the ZeXtras Migration Tool due to the minimal impact of this release on this software. Any change to this policy will be reported here.


    USEFUL INFORMATION

    • ZeXtras Suite 1.99.x is BETA software and it's not meant for production use.
    • ZeXtras Suite 1.99.x comes with a special fully featured "Testing" license which is set to expire on May 1st at 00:00 UTC.
    • Please help us helping you by not opening support tickets for any issue related to ZeXtras Suite 1.99.x.



    ZEXTRAS CLIENT ZIMLET
    This new component is, similarly to the ZeXtras Chat Zimlet, a client-side one. It enables the use of the "Shared Items Sync" feature to users, so make sure to enable the Zimlet for any user/COS which will use this feature. It features an autodeploy system similar to the one used by the ZeXtras Chat Zimlet (see the "How to..." paragraph below).


    ZEXTRAS CHAT ZIMLET
    A new version of the ZeXtras Chat Zimlet has been released, which includes all the new features. Right now this new version is not available via the autodeploy system, but you can download it from HERE and deploy it manually.


    HOW TO... (the ZeXtras Wiki will be updated with proper guides during the beta stage)

    • To deploy the ZeXtras Client Zimlet, access the Zimbra Administration Console, enter the "Core" section of the ZeXtras Administration Zimlet and click on the "Deploy" button within the "ZeXtras Client Zimlet" section.
    • To enable the synchronization of a shared folder (ZeXtras Client Zimlet is required), right click on the folder in your Zimbra WebClient, select the "Folder Sync Settings" entry, check the "Sync this folder" checkbox and press "OK".
    • To start a video call via ZeXtras Chat simply open a new chat with one of your buddies and click the camera icon next to the Emoji selector.
    • To send a full client info debug log, click on the "gear" icon in ZeXtras Chat, check the "Show Debug Info" checkbox in the "About" tab, then access the newly created "Debug Info" tab and click on "Send email".



    HOW TO REPORT AN ISSUE
    In order to streamline the investigation and fix process, please only report BETA issues on this thread (no tickets), following this steps:

    • Post a description of your issue in this thread
    • Send all information mentioned in the appropriate sections of the "How to report a ZeXtras Suite issue" guide to beta@zextras.com, including a link to your post in the message's body.
    • For issues affecting ZeXtras Chat, please send the client info debug log (see above) to beta@zextras.com aswell.
    • If you are asked to send a logfile, please do not alter it in any way.


    CHANGELOG
    1.99.2

    • Fixed an issue that could cause emails sent from a mobile device not to be correctly saved in the "Sent" folder. This only affected EAS2.5 clients (e.g. Samsung devices).
    • Fixed an issue that caused sychronized folders for which share permissions were revoked after the sync not to disappear from mobile devices.
    • Fixed a bug that could cause Outlook 2013 to crash when synchronizing a task folder.
    • Fixed several small usability issues affecting the ZeXtras Client Zimlet (updated aswell)
    • Updated iOS 8.x compatibility, including the lockscreen email notification/preview.
    • Connection handlers have been improved.
    • Folder items with "unkn" item type now inherit the parent folder's item type.
    • Changed the algorithm used by the to generate mobile passwords to the same one used by the Admin Console.
    • Added a workaround for a Windows Mobile/Windows Phone issue that could lead to an incomplete sync when the number of pending items is higher than the phone's WindowSize. On top of this, WP/WM compatibility has been further improved.


    1.99.1

    • SyncStates are now migrated from previous ZeXtras Suite versions, which means devices won't re-sync anymore after updating to 1.99.1+
    • The "Active Devices" and "Registered Devices" list have been merged into a new and improved cross-server view.
    • All protocol versions have been tested and are now available for use.
    • Several "ping" and protocol fixes, affecting both personal and shared items.
    • Several Shared Calendars fixes (auto-update, improved stability...). We're still working on some Meeting Invitation issues.
    • Improved logging.
    • Fixed a bug that could cause a "ping loop" issue with Android Devices.


    1.90.0
    Yaaaay, new beta! Rolling changelog at Changelog - ZeXtras Suite Wiki


    KNOWN ISSUES

    • When upgrading to version 1.99.x, the "Last Activity" and "Registered" fields are lost, displaying Jan. 1st 1970 until the related device/user starts a sync. This will be solved before the final release.
    • When viewing a shared calendar, appointments are marked as "invites" as the user is not the organizer of the appointment. This logic loophole might be solved before the final release.
    • Moving items between folders belonging to different users is not supported. This might be added in the future (but not in the first stable release).
    • We're still working on cross-browser compatibility on the Video Chat features: to date, starting a videochat with an user using a different browser might not work.
    • We're going to add a "limiter" similar to the one enabled by default on the Window Size property to the "Days to Sync" so that devices not sending a specific amount of days to sync won't synchronize the full mailbox (there are very few devices showing this behaviour).

    Hello Glenn!

    Yes, shared item sync is included in this beta... Did you enable the sync for the calendar/s you wish to sync using the ZeXtras Client Zimlet as described in the OP?

    Have a nice day,

    Thanks Cine. Have gone through it all again and can only presume part of it did not take.

    I have found a bug with a shared email folder using Outlook 2013. When placing an email in the Outlook folder which was shared on the web gui, it does not sync. If you use the web gui to place in the folder it does sync with outlook.

    Thanks

    Glenn

    There is a problem with shared folders on mobile phones (tested iphone/ android), I think it is related to attachments. We found if you have an email with calendar event meeting.ics then then folder on phone shows no mails at all but not only this we have also another folder with no calendar events and also show no emails on phone
