    Default Zimbra 9 - Status?

    Hi all,
    I wonder if there is any news on Zimbra 9?

    I can remember it was announced for autumn last year, then postponed to spring this year, then postponed to summer (which is very close?). However, given there are no request for beta testers, I assume there will be more delay?

    Once Zimbra Desktop was announced to be Future-EOL and to be replaced with browser caching technology (causing hard debates any time it came up). It is still open how things continue? I can remember reading somewhere that there re tries to replace Prism with Chromium – so will ZD live on?

    Also “new” free technology like z-Push and openchange is available making a replacement for Exchange really possible without any license charges.

    I think I made my point: It would be nice to get more insight of where Zimbra 9 is heading and a rough estimate on when this is going to happen. I think its now over a year without any news…

    Cheers
    Mike

    I find it quite unprofessional for a "Zimbra Employee" to be putting out misinformation like this.

    When exactly will we be hearing more about 8.5 ?

    Apologies dik23 but misinformation was never my intention.ZCS 8.5 is scheduled to be GA in late July or early August but again that is not confirmed yet.We are working on war footing to make it available but some announcement will soon be made about the new features and availability. Hope that clears the air.

    It's not 'misinformation' it's someone trying to give you an idea of when it would be available as a beta, as always any comments in these forums are subject to "wait for the official announcement" - I've said many times tin these forums that Zimbra products are never pre-announced and that's always the case.

    we look forward to the 8.5 beta version for testing. It's been several weeks, we can expect this week to be released the public beta?

    Thanks

    How many times does this need to be said? The products are not pre-announced and they'll be here when you see an official announcement from Zimbra in the Announcement forum.
