    Default Build 1278 vs. build 1083 - sharing address book now missing?

    2 days ago, I first stubled upon zimbra in tucows and installed it, it was build 1083. Today i deleted it and installed the lastest build, 1278 from the zimbra site. there's one glaring difference - I could share mail folders and address books in the earlier build but not 1278. am i missing something as i thought a more recent build will include more and new features. i absolutley need my contacts to be shared on my lan. thank you.

    what do you mean by sharing? we never had that feature in desktop before.

    if you take a look at build 1083, when you're in address book view, and if you right click on the contacts folder in the left pane, you will see that sharing is one of the options whereas in build 1278 and the one before, sharing is no longer an option. let me know if you want a screen capture since i have now re-installed build 1083 in one of my other computers.

    if you donwload from tucows, the build is still 1083, i suppose it's pre-Yahoo
    if you download from download.com, it's one build 1249 fyi.

    after sharing, this is the system generated email:

    The following share has been created:
    Shared item: Emailed Contacts (Address Book Folder)
    Owner: sbd@xxx.com

    Grantee: shyam@xxx.com

    Role: Viewer
    Allowed actions: View

    there was a bug where the ui exposed various sharing hooks, but the underlying sharing never was implemented.

    both tucows and download.com versions are out of date.

    this is what i am talking about in build 1083, yes it allows you to share the address book and it is even documented in the zimbra web site, Address Book Sharing: Zimbra screenshot

    that's ZCS, a server product. zdesktop shares a lot of code with zcs, and that's why there's a leak of some hooks in the zdesktop UI.
