    Default 5.0 Timeline?

    I saw in the Announcements forum that a 5.0 release is shaping up for mid August, but the PM web is showing mid Oct. Anyone have any details on this?
    Will documents actually come out of beta? Will we actually have tasks in the web client? Will Zimbra actually be the Exchange killer? Will OSS make M$ irrelevant?...

    Timeline is always subject to review, don't get too excited just yet - there's a lot of continuing work in 5 and it will be later rather than sooner.

    Just one man's opinion, but this is confusing to me. The Zimbra PM has been referenced many times in these forums. Looking at the time-line there I wouldn't expect a GA release of version 5 until the 4th quarter. And using a little logic in seeing that the beta 2 release date has already slipped a few weeks I would think that the GA release would now be pushed out past the posted 10/15/07 date, so basically mid 4th quarter. Are we not going to see beta 2, RC1, and RC2 releases as shown on the PM?

    Not really a big deal. My thinking is that the software is ready when it's ready, and I certainly understand the dates slipping a bit. However, just looking for a little clarification on the comment that availability of version 5 is scheduled for the 3rd quarter.

    The clarification is my failing memory. It is 4th quarter, I'm still living on the old date - sorry for the confusion.

    If there's any doubts then take the published one in the portal.

    You'll notice that the dates are left in to show actual releases/patches vs projected.

    Tasks & IM! -check out the v5 beta
    In your view-what is lacking to make it an 'Exchange killer'?
