    Hi muzzol and welcome to the forums.

    Well, since Zimbra 8 is a new major release, with the amount of changes that entails, it'll take slightly more than a few days this time :-)
    We're currently going through the testing phase of the new release, and our target is the end of September.

    This is great news! I'm finalizing my evaluation of Zimbra 7.2.1, but I'd like to evaluate 8.0 before making it a production server. Having a fully functional server including the ZeXtras Mobile extension would be nice to have from the get go. I'm looking forward to the updated extension.

    I cant wait as well. I can't test and move to .8 yet without Zextras being compatable. Im not sure why the programming and testing couldnt have been started 9 months ago when they released the first Zimbra 8 beta. Thats half the point of those releases.

    I'm repeating the same thing the whole dev team for almost two weeks, when Zimbra has released the 8.0.0 OSS

    We are doing our best to release a reliable software, but all Zextras modules are extensions of Zimbra core and the compatibility depends on the specific released builds. Then the source code, that we are checking with perforce since when it was available, is changed day-by-day with many major features (and bugs) added even last months.

    To meet the testing needs of our customers, we are very close to release a public beta version (branch 1.5) with some shortcomings like ZxChat module and imports from previous Zimbra versions.

    Please do not not delay the release of getting our backup/mobile solutions updated for 8.0 because of a new feature of chat that you want to add. While we do appreciate that new feature, its not a mandatory thing like mobile/backups and we would really like more effort going into that instead.

    Will the beta version be anounced on the forums or only customers will have access to it?

    We have finally released the Public BETA version 1.5.0, this package and all next beta versions 1.5.x are downloadable directly from this link or simply use wget directly from your Zimbra server:
    Code:
    wget http://www.zextras.com/downloads/zextras_suite-BETA.tgz
    As I said before we have disabled Inport/Export functions and ZxChat module in this release
