Phoenix, could you 'sticky' this topic: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/general-questions/56206-zd-future-eol.html
- as it is clearly of relevance to all Zimbra Desktop forum users.
I understand that Zimbra Desktop 7.2 will be compatible with Zimbra 8 server. That will be they last ZD release.
'New technologies' will be leveraged for future offline Uusage, details are as yet unannounced (perhaps html5?).
Details are included in the Zimbra Desktop thread on this subject, please move any future discussion there:http://www.zimbra.com/forums/general-questions/56206-zd-future-eol.html
It is disappointing (though typical imho of Zimbra) and poor customer relations to trickle out information concerning major product feature changes/removals, on various obscure locations, rather than making an announcement and giving at least release-related timescales.
(i.e. 'ZD to be replaced after 8, we're looking to release a replacement, details to be announced, during ZCS 9 release cycle').
This lack of effective communications leads to poor reputation and the kind of understandable, if incorrect, conjecture that this thread exemplifies.
