6.0.7 Status

Postby L. Mark Stone » Fri Jun 11, 2010 2:44 pm

Thanks Kevin for the update!
We can wait no problem. We would much rather have solid QA'd code at the cost of a few days/weeks than not.
And once again, we really, really appreciate the transparency and accessibility Zimbra provides throughout this process. It gives us and our clients a great deal of confidence in Zimbra.
Have a great weekend!
Best regards to all,

Mark

With the recent thrashing from people on changing the release dates, I'm far happier that it gets pushed out as a more stable release, than pushed out on the date just to get it out the door.
I have worked in support at a particular software company where they pushed new versions out the door, and it was a horrible time for the support staff, and even worse time for the end users... then they end up sitting and waiting for the next patch to fix all of those issues anyways!
So, that being said - thanks for pushing it back rather than kicking it out the door broken. :)

I don't mind the delays, but perhaps cutting it a bit short with the target dates? Then again, it is a pretty frank look at the realities of software development. I rather see this than the 'Apple' approach.

Yeah definitely better to have a release fully working than a bug that was due to be fixed then not making it into the release.
What I don't like however is the way the date is changed on the day it was scheduled. If the date's going to change, it would be good to know a day or 2 before the originally scheduled date. Would make it a bit easier to plan upgrades.

Though having said that I normally give it a few days and wait for reports to appear in the "Success Stories" forum before taking the plunge myself :D

[quote user="amravit"]when the patch set would be released to allow update for current 6.0.6[/QUOTE]You use the binary for 6.0.7 to update your currently installed Zimbra, it's available on the downloads page (the link in the post above yours).

Seems that the Nokia E72 compatibility bug request was delayed to 6.0.8 :(

why there is no patch just to upgrade instead of downloading 450 mg to update from 6.0.6 to .7

This is Zimbra's standard method for distribution. Each update is compiled seperately, patches are not normally used. I'd assume this has to do with the number of items normally fixed and also then they do not have to maintain patches for all the versions. It's easier to maintain a complete binary. Even on a 1.5 mb/s connection, 450 megs is a quick download from their servers.
