Address auto-complete in ZCS 6.0.6

Postby soxfan » Wed May 05, 2010 11:33 am

[quote user="jmainwaring"]I need a patch ASAP on this issue, I can't wait until 6.0.7 for this to resolve otherwise I may be receiving an order from the top to begin looking for a new email solution.
Sounds a little ridiculous over auto complete, but before I assumed the role as Zimbra Admin our previous host ruined the perception of Zimbra in the eyes of my coworkers. Since I've taken over the duties I've worked to improve the environment as well as bending over backwards with PR to change those perceptions, but this issue is derailing my efforts.
Zimbra - I'm not trying to bad mouth you, but from an end user perspective, they consider the auto complete to be as critical as the functionality behind the send button. I don't believe it's a good practice to make people wait this long for post-upgrade-patching to resolve things that weren't identified during testing when it affects a frequently used functionality. It's equivalent of an office building having a broken front door and requiring you to use the back door for the next month. Sure, you have the same functionality, but the ease of use is completely shot considering that the parking lot and the back door are on opposite sides of the building.[/QUOTE]

I pretty much 100% agree with what you are saying, but I said it earlier and I'll say it again... Don't expect a patch. That is just not Zimbra's practice, and in this case it probably isn't even feasible because I think it affects several areas/programs. What we really need is for Zimbra to push up the release date of 6.0.7 (or put out an interim release - 6.0.6a or whatever you want to call it). Unfortunately it just doesn't seem to be sinking in to Zimbra how big of an issue this is. Your "parking" analogy is right on. When you look at the problem from afar it might seem like a minor inconvenience, but when you are actually dealing with the problem it is much more than that.... Sorry, that's my rant for the day on this issue.

Not that it solves this current issue but probably in the future patches will be available in between release cycles.

My ranting aside, i truthfully don't expect an early release, but none the less I did need to contribute my frustrations with the process in hopes that someone is listening enough to consider changes in the future.

I know that the auto-complete bug was briefly re-opened and then closed again today. Perhaps that has caused a slight delay in the patch release.

When it is released, I'd encourage those who install it to come and share whether their users report the problem as fixed or not. I will want to put this on soon, but due to non-work things will be unable to do so this weekend.
