= ANN: SOGo v1.3.17 =

The Inverse Team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of SOGo 1.3.17. 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 users
* 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, Apple iOS and Android-based devices

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

=== Changes from the previous release ===

New Features
* new contextual menu to view the raw content of events, tasks and contacts
* send and/or receive email notifications when a calendar is modified (new domain defaults SOGoNotifyOnPersonalModifications and SOGoNotifyOnExternalModifications)
* added the SOGoSearchMinimumWordLength domain default which controls the minimal length required before trigging server-side search operations for attendee completion, contact searches, etc. The default value is 2, which means search operations are trigged once the 3rd character is typed.

* updated BrazilianPortuguese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish (Argentina), Spanish (Spain) translations
* all addresses from a contact are displayed in the Web interface (no longer limited to one additional address)
* improved Sieve script: vacation message is now sent after evaluating the mail filters
* updated CKEditor to version 3.6.4

Bug Fixes
* fixed a crash when multiple mail headers of the same type were encountered
* fixed logrotate script for Debian
* fixed linking of libcurl on Ubuntu 12.04
* fixed parsing of timezones when importing .ics files
* fixed resource reservation for recurring events
* fixed display of text attachments in messages
* fixed contextual menu on newly created address books
* fixed missing sender in mail notifications to removed attendees
* improved invitations handling in iCal

New extensions for Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1 and 10 ESR have also been generated.

See for closed tickets and for the complete change log.
