    Is this considered safe to upgrade for production, or still an “early developer release” like 8.7.8? I note that the bugs related to the new Sieve functionality seem to still be present….

      Hi Jered,
      As usual for all the every two week release cycle, only install it if the bug fixes included really were affecting your deployment, it’s not any security fix or anything else so important to install it other than if the bug fixes apply to your environment.

      If you want to wait for something bigger, the every quarter Release I think it’s the more stable version.

      Best regards

    Hi Jorge,

    The upgrade to 8.7.9 (from 8.7.5) went great! I’m happy to report the Zimlets remained fully functional, despite my system having pesky symlinks ;-)

    Thank you, team Zimbra!

    – Richard.

    Hello Jorge,

    Congrats for all the enthusiasm you put on your daily work and for give updates on the forums.

    I want to ask where can we find a zimbra roadmap to know when the new releases will be available. I would like to put in production the version 8.7.x but I see many minor updates with so close dates, but customers don’t like to upgrade so often. Can you teall an idea when we will have a stable release like 8.8 or 8.9. This can help to take decisions to wait or deploy the current release 8.7.9.

    Thank you

      Hi Miguel,
      Thank you so much for the comments! and thank you for trust in Zimbra. At the moment we are targeting 8.8 for July-ish, with a Beta earlier than that, keep it posted.
      We understand the struggling with updates every two weeks, for that reason we always advice to update if the features, or bugs fixed affect the Customer, but if you are stable and nothing is broken then don’t touch it, despite security fixes.

      So, as per your question, July will be a good month for a 8.8.

      Thank you
