Note: There is no automatic data migration from ZD 1.0 to 2.0, so you'll have to re-download all data from servers or use export > import for local items. You don't have to uninstall 1.0 before installing 2.0. But it's not recommended to have them both running at the same time.
(If already on the first 2.0 Beta1, upgrading to this release data is retained. There's just a lot of architecture changes between major versions 1.0 and 2.0; derby to sqlite, we also now use common OS defaults for separation of program and data storage, etc - and we haven't yet built in a migration tool for auto tar exports/imports across the major editions.)
As always, we really appreciate your loyal support. With your help, our team will continue to make Zimbra Desktop the best mail app around!
