Inverse is proud to announce the twelfth downloadable version of SOGo ZEG with native Microsoft Outlook compatibility.

The virtual appliance consists of the latest development version of SOGo, SOPE and OpenChange, properly installed and configured. Note that the native Microsoft Outlook compatibility is still *considered as experimental*. The fundamentals have been developed and the progress towards an end-user usable version will be fast from now on. The next version will be a first beta release.

Nonetheless, we release this "Technology Preview" ZEG edition to show how promising this is.

== Getting it ==

To download ZEG "Technology Preview", simply point your browser to

Look for "Virtual Appliance - Native Outlook Compatibility".

For configuration instructions, look at the following FAQ:

You can also install it from sources, by following those instructions:

== Changes ==

Here is a list of changes performed by the Inverse team since TP11 was released :

 * Permissions fixes for Outlook 2007 and 2010
 * IMAP sub-folders support, independently of your IMAP namespace
 * Fixed many issues that could lead to crashes in OpenChange
 * Enhanced performance

== Upcoming improvements ==

The follow improvements will occur in the next following days, likely resulting in a beta 1 :

 * Freebusy lookups for attendees during event invitations
 * General performance and stability improvements in preparation for the beta 1 release

== Installation / Update ==

For now, you cannot update from TP11 or any other previous versions to TP12. You have to download TP12.

In order to test Cached Exchange Mode, which is now the preferred mode, you will have to create a new Outlook Exchange profile. If you created a profile with an other TP version, you'll have to recreate your Outlook profile. If you run into weird issues, simply close Outlook, run the "" as root from "/home/sogo" and recreate your Outlook profile. Moreover, if Outlook starts to crash and even after a restart, it immediately crashes again, try to restart OpenChange using "stop openchange;  start openchange".

== Helping Out ==

There are many ways you can help us. You can:

 * Tests with Outlook 2003, 2007 and 2010 and send us detailed reports
 * Spread the good word about this technology preview!
 * Follow our development in the "> mailing list and update regularly the components mentioned above
 * Contact us if you want to sponsor specific features with regard to Outlook / SOGo compatibility
