Zimbra (JudasPriest) Release Update 1

By | April 5, 2013
As promised here’s an update on a few of the major projects we are working on for the JudasPriest release of Zimbra. Overall, our goal for the release is to innovate around our web app using HTML5 capabilities that run on any desktop, tablet, and mobile device while providing support for native clients using sync protocols. Here’s what we’re working on. HTML5 Offline Web App With our mission to drive advancements in Zimbra into the browser as our primary client experience, so goes Zimbra Desktop. ZD was essentially an offline HTML experience using SQL lite to store data, Jetty to serve our web app locally, and Prism (Firefox) to render the client UI. HTML5 enables us to cache our web app in local storage and provide SQL services, via IndexedDB embedded within Chrome, IE, and FireFox, to store and retrieve a local cache of your mailbox data. Initially we will support mail, calendar, and contacts and we’re taking the approach of syncing your current working set of data up to 30 days similar to a mobile experience where you typically don’t sync your entire 30GB mailbox. For those that must have their entire 30GB mailbox locally with them at all times, we are continuing to make advancements in the sync protocols and Desktop clients we support…keep reading.… Read more »

Smartsheet Adoption On the Rise – Check It Out

By | November 11, 2011
Our partners at Smartsheet just passed their one year anniversary of launching an integration with VMware Zimbra.  And looking back, we’ve seen a strong increase in Zimbra users embracing the online project management and collaboration app.  In fact, Smartsheet continues to be a favorite, now ranking as a “Top 5 Most Popular App” in the Zimbra Zimlet Gallery. Smartsheet now claims more than 100 joint customers with Zimbra! For Zimbra users, Smartsheet serves as the perfect union between spreadsheets, project tools and file sharing. While most work projects take shape as a spreadsheet, they break down when you need to get others involved. There’s no way to easily track versions, much less associate notes, share files, set reminders and so forth. Smartsheet allows Zimbra users to keep the spreadsheet layout you like (and already know how to use) and gain the additional automation you need.… Read more »
