The Inverse Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of SOGo
1.3.13. This is a minor release of SOGo which focuses on improved stability
over previous versions.

=== What is SOGo ===

SOGo is a free and modern scalable groupware server. It offers shared
calendars, address books and emails through your favorite Web browser or by
using a native client such as Mozilla Thunderbird and Lightning.

SOGo is standard-compliant and supports CalDAV, CardDAV, GroupDAV and reuses
existing IMAP, SMTP and database servers - making the solution easy to deploy
and interoperable with many applications.

SOGo features :

* Scalable architecture suitable for deployments from dozen to many thousand
* Rich Web-based interface that shares the look and feel, the features and
the data of Mozilla Thunderbird and Lightning
* Improved integration with Mozilla Thunderbird and Lightning by using the
SOGo Connector and the SOGo Integrator
* Two-way synchronization support with any SyncML-capable devices
(BlackBerry, Palm, Windows CE, etc.) by using the Funambol SOGo Connector
* Excellent integration with Apple iCal 3/4, Apple iOS and Android-based

and many more! SOGo and our connectors are completely free.

=== Changes from the previous release ===

New Features
* email notifications now include a new x-sogo-message-type mail header
* added the "IMAPHostnameFieldName" parameter in SQL source to specify a
different IMAP hostname for each user (was already possible for LDAP sources)
* default event & task classification can now be set from the preferences
* contacts from LDAP sources can now be modified by privileged owners (see
the "modifiers" parameter)

* bundled a shell script to perform and manage backups using sogo-tool
* increased the delay before starting drag and drop in Mail and Contacts
module to improve the user experience with cheap mouses
* improved contact card layout when it includes a photo
* updated German translation
* updated Spanish (Spain) translation
* updated Spanish (Argentina) translation
* updated Ukrainian translation
* updated Hungarian translation
* updated Dutch translation

Bug Fixes
* fixed escaping issue with PostgreSQL 8.1
* fixed resizing issue when editing an HTML message
* fixed Spanish (Argentina) templates for mail reply and forward
* we no longer show public address books (from SOGoUserSources) on iOS 5.0.1
* improved support for IE

tickets and for the
complete change log.

New Thunderbird 3 and 10 extensions have also been released.
