I see 7.1.5 was taken off Zimbra Product Management Portal, does that mean 8.0 is closer and that it will be (as of now) the next release?

I'm really really dying to get to 8.0 for shared tags (aka categories in Outlook) and some other nice improvements! Is there any way we can get something going on Zimbra Product Management Portal for 8.0?

Finally, is there a beta version of 8.0 I can at least play around with for now? Will there be one in the near future?

Thank you.
