    Default GAL Browsing in 6.0

    Can anyone provide some details on how GAL Browsing is implemented in 6.0? I'm not able to find this feature in my test installation.

    Bug 14531 - GAL via contacts folders with sorting, browsing and real sync

    No response here and no response to the same question posted in the comments on bugzilla.

    Am I correct in gathering from the comments in the RFE that the request for "GAL via contacts folders with sorting, browsing" has been ignored and all this "fix" really implements is syncing among GAL sources?

    GAL is there in 6.0. SearchGalRequest has been modified to indicate/allow paging and ZWC in 6.0 uses the modified API. IE, when you compose a new message and click on 'To', the address chooser appears populated with the first page of gal results and the user can then browse through the the entire GAL.

    Isn't this the same as 5.x? I can currently click "To" when composing a message, and see the first page of GAL results. How is the implementation is 6.0 different?

    You can go page by page through GAL search results or page by page through the entire GAL. See bug 36188 or try it in 6.0 beta for more info.

    Maybe I'm missing something? It looks the same:

    Release 5.0.18_GA_3011.RHEL5_64_20090707153751 RHEL5_64 NETWORK edition:

    Attachment 3015


    Release 6.0.0_BETA2_1547.RHEL5_20090602052001 CentOS5 FOSS edition:

    correct, you'll see the difference when you populate your gal with multiple pages of entries. the prev/next buttons will work [correctly] on the GAL in 6.0.x, where they didn't in 5.0.x.

    Maybe Sam @ Zimbra is confusing these two bugs? I can't tell which beta that bug 14531 is included with. Maybe it hasn't been included in any public releases?
