    “Customers on 8.8.15/9 are encouraged to wait for the 10.1 release to upgrade.

    So, do you mean that customers on 8.8.15, which is end-of-life since the end of 2023, should wait even longer. Do you have any other great encouragements?

    And by the way, you should start working on Ubuntu 24.04 now to be ready before Ubuntu 22.04 EoL in 2027.

    No mention of RHEL 9 support, has it been delayed *again* ?

    • Rainer June 13, 2024 at 1:52 AM #

      I heard it’s targeted for Q3/24.

      Which, TBH, doesn’t really come as a surprise to me.

      Unless I have to, I am not going to update to Rocky8 in the meantime.

      RHEL10 is epected to launch in 2025…but I can’t hold out for that.

    We also planned to move straight from CentOS 7 to Rocky 9, skipping 8. Zimbra approved that plan… 2 years ago! And now with the EL7 EOL around the corner, we still don’t have EL9 support.

      Rocky-9 support is planned for Q3-2024 on Daffodil v10.1 version

    What does “Coming Soon” mean? Weeks, month, years ? Ubuntu 22.04 is already 2 years old … 24.04 would be the right version to go ….

    Any news on supporting Ubuntu 22.04 LTS? We have a lot of mailmox servers on CentOS7.
    The release was repeatedly postponed. Now we are already in Q3 2024.

    Hi team!

    After reading the email regarding the release of Zimbra 10.1, I have a question regarding the following statement:

    “Zimbra Chat and Video users should wait for the new on-premises version of Chat and Video to be released in the near future.”

    Could you please confirm if the release of the on-premises version of Zimbra Chat and Video is part of version 10.1 or if it will be launched in the future?

    Hope in this new release, Self-password reset can be done using OTP (MFA/2FA).
