Dear friends, partners and community of Zarafa,Today we are proud to announce the release of 7.2.0 beta 1. With this beta 1 we would like to give everyone a sneak peek into our next major release. What can you expect?With this new release, we ... [More] introduce new key features and major changes, such as:- A completely rewritten zarafa-search, now called zarafa-search-plus.We wanted to tweak our search performance, especially in larger environments. With this goal in mind, we decided to rewrite the whole code from scratch. You can find out more in our detailed blog post from April. - Component stack upgrade of nearly all components used with ZCP Zarafa uses industry-standard open source components such as OpenSSL and gSOAP. Over time, many components have changed behaviour and have not been compatible to Zarafa in certain areas. This new ZCP 7.2 is using recent versions of these open source components, and internal tests have shown us performance improvements of up to 22% in combination with the changes made to our codebase. - First version to include WebApp 2.0 (currently in beta3) and Z-Files out-of-the-box.With WebApp 2.0 we enhance the user experience with the use of our new HTML Editor component. With this, compatibility to HTML e-mails gains the next level of usability. Additionally, with Z-Files, WebApp users are enabled to manage their files easily from one interface using a standard WebDAV backend.- Includes new, simplified python-zarafa interface.With python-zarafa we drastically simplify the way of interfacing ZCP, This lowers the barriers for developers to interface ZCP or to extend the functionality of ZCP. Python-zarafa is designed in a way that enables devs to work with Zarafa without in-depth knowledge of MAPI.- New distributions supported.With the release of 7.2 we support new major distributions such as RHEL 7 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and SLES 12 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server). Don’t fear the migration!We understand your needs of very low downtime for communication-sensitive environments. This upgrade to 7.2 will not require any downtime except for the upgrade of the packages themselves. Please keep in mind that your index needs to be re-created to take full advantage of the new search backend. Luckily, this can be done while the live system is running.The 7.2 is the foundation for new componentsWe are proud to make this release the new foundation for many new components of Zarafa that will show up in the near and far future. Examples of these are Zarafa web meetings powered by WebRTC and S/MIME for WebApp (demonstrated at our Zarafa Tour in October).A complete overview of all changesWe would like to refer you to the changelog if you want to do a deep dive on ZCP 7.2.Where can I download 7.2.0 beta 1On our download section of course . The road to a final 7.2 releaseAs this is a major release, there is still some polishing work to be done until our final release. We are currently working on:- Getting documentation (manuals, etc.) finalized for the upcoming final release- Integrating certain SSL setting enhancements with ZCP- Integrating the latest translations to our final release- Providing repositories for all distributions (available to customers with subscriptions) - Finalizing enhancements made to the Outlook clientPlease note this is a beta release, so we do not encourage you to run it on production systems. As with every release, we welcome any feedback - feel free to contact us at any time.Team@Zarafa [Less]

The press already wrote about it: Bodo Möller, Thai Duong and Krzysztof Kotowicz from the Google Security Team discovered a design vulnerability in SSLv3 also known as "POODLE". I would like to try to answer some questions that popped up today ... [More] regarding Zarafa and POODLE. Important: Even the vulnerability seems to only affect HTTPS, it might (!) apply to other protocols/services as well (if an attacker has control over the packets that also contain secret data), thus Zarafa might be affected in the future as well. As of writing Zarafa itself should be not affected through, nevertheless I do not take any responsibility for this statement. Given the most common attack vendor is HTTPS...it makes sense to disable SSLv3 support in the web server configuration in the first step. A second step is to also disable SSLv3 for all Zarafa services (to be safe for the future). For Apache it looks like this: SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3SSLCipherSuite ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-DSS-AES128-GCM-SHA256:kEDH+AESGCM:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:DHE-DSS-AES128-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA256:DHE-DSS-AES256-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:AES128-GCM-SHA256:AES256-GCM-SHA384:AES128-SHA:AES256-SHA:AES:CAMELLIA:DES-CBC3-SHA:!aNULL:!eNULL:!EXPORT:!DES:!RC4:!MD5:!PSK:!aECDH:!EDH-DSS-DES-CBC3-SHA:!EDH-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA:!KRB5-DES-CBC3-SHASSLHonorCipherOrder on Please do not forget to restart your web server service and try if everything still works for you. Above cipher suite is taken from the current Mozilla recommendation and should be suitable for most environments. If you are more security sensitive use the "modern compatibility" rather the "intermediate compatibility" (that is used above). How to test if your services support SSLv3 or whether it is disabled? Red Hat provides a small generic POODLE detector. Alternatively the following commands are helpful for e-mail related services: openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :25 -starttls smtp openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :110 -starttls pop3 openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :143 -starttls imap openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :237 openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :443 openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :465 openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :587 -starttls smtp openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :993 openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :995 openssl s_client -ssl3 -connect :8443 Disabling SSLv3 support in the web server was easy, wasn't it? But unfortunately it isn't same easy for Zarafa: The built-in SSLv3 support in Zarafa can not be turned off using a configuration option. Zarafa supports from SSLv2 up to TLSv1.2 in its daemons and the whole SSL/TLS support can be either completely enabled or completely turned off. The only thing that can be separately disabled is the (weak) SSLv2 support that is fortunately anyway turned off by default. Fortunately the upcoming Zarafa 7.2 will likely include my patch proposal to make SSL/TLS protocols, cipher suites and preferences configurable. But if you are a user of my RPM packages in Fedora or EPEL you can have that feature already today because I applied my patch to the Zarafa 7.1.11 packages there... ;-) [Less]

Hi Community,   It came to our attention that Microsoft updated Outlook 2013 to 15.4649.1003. Unfortunately, our auto-patching mechanism could not completely restore Zarafa’s compatibility.

We want to address two blocking issues that have been reported by the community. We have decided to release now because we didn’t want to wait on the 7.2 release.   Which issues have been resolved? The first issue is related to RPM-based systems. ... [More] Administrators have noted that they weren’t able to install WebAccess on their systems. Unfortunately, a patch from the community caused this bug. We have corrected the patch to work with RPM-based systems.   Please keep in mind: we don’t actively support WebAccess at this moment. So, these patches are only provided on a best-effort basis.   In addition some specific issues with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS have been tackled. Firstly, we have resolved issues related to the install.sh script. Secondly, users also reported that zarafa-search appears to be crashing at startup (only in in Ubuntu 14.04). This revision fixes this issue.   Extra installation instructions for Ubuntu 14.04 administrators: WebApp (and WebAccess) are not accessible after installation due incomplete configuration. Please review this JIRA ticket to see what you need to do: https://jira.zarafa.com/browse/ZCP-12404   Get an overview of resolved tickets The change log has been updated to give you an overview of which tickets have been included in this release. Check it out here.   Download links To download this final release, please visit our download section.   Suyi Guo Zarafa QA [Less]
