Zimbra Desktop 7.2.7 is now available!

Postby jorgedlcruz » Thu Jul 16, 2015 5:18 pm


Zimbra Desktop 7.2.7 is now available! Remember, it is a free application and is one of the best email clients to manage all of your email accounts. This release primarily addresses some important security issues and has fixed issues when syncing with Yahoo! accounts.











What's new



  • Important security issues fixed.

  • Yahoo mail sync issues resolved.

  • Java is no longer bundled inside the Zimbra Desktop package for Windows and Linux. Zimbra Desktop now detects and uses the Java available on the user's machine. As part of this development, a separate 64-bit Zimbra Desktop package is available for Windows.

  • Zimbra no longer ships a copy of trusted CA certificates inside the application, instead it now relies on Java's CA trust store for improved security.

  • Mac installer signing issue fixed, which was causing Zimbra Desktop to appear from an "unidentified developer".

  • Yahoo mail sync issue fixed, which was broken after Yahoo discontinued their web service mail API. IMAP/SMTP is now used for Yahoo mail sync.

  • Zimbra Desktop is updated with the latest timezone data.


Upgrade Process


To upgrade to the latest version of Zimbra Desktop, download and run the Zimbra Desktop installer available at www.zimbra.com/downloads/zimbra-desktop. All user settings and data are preserved during the upgrade.


Notes:



  • Zimbra Desktop 7.x.x supports upgrades from Zimbra Desktop 2.0.x, Upgrades from Zimbra Desktop 1.0.x are not supported. Downgrading and auto-migration are not supported.

  • If you are in Zimbra Desktop 7.2.5 version, you can click in About Zimbra Desktop > Check for updates to install this new Release.
