We're proud to announce the public availability of Zimbra 6.0 (Codename Guns and Roses) RC1 Open Source edition.
To say that this is a HUGE step towards the final GA version of 6.0 would be a gross understatement.
The Zimbra engineering team has been working night and day to get all the of brand new features into this release, and we think it's ready for you to test.
Please remember that we do not encourage nor want you to run this is a production environment. It is a "beta-quality" release, which means that there are known and unknown issues that may be very bad for you and your users.
There were 1104 bugs and features fixed in this release (RC1), with 2636 bugs and feaures fixed since 5.0. So, as you can see, there are just TONS of stuff in this newest beta.

If you wish to test the Network Edition, please feel free by downloading it below. Upgrades are not permitted and are not supported unless your organization is part of the Network Edition Beta program.
We're also announcing that beginning later today, testzimbra.com (our live hosted demo) will be running Zimbra 6.0, so you can get a preview without having to install it yourself.
