Zimbra Year in Review
Anytime, Anywhere, Any Device
Zimbra Collaboration 8.5 added a range of usability and back-end enhancements. Among those enhancements are a touch client, an offline web client, Outlook for Mac support (Exchange Web Services), document preview and infrastructure enhancements to the web application and server architecture.
As Rob Howard said in his blog on 8.5, âZimbra put some serious development time behind both customer-facing user experience and the back-end architecture.â

Commitment to Open Source
Zimbra Collaboration is not only a unified collaboration solution; it is also an open source project. In 2014, Zimbra began to reinvigorate the open source community. Moving forward, we will continue to invest by helping build a robust Zimbra Collaboration ecosystem.
As a part of our efforts to revitalize our open source community, this past June, Zimbra made a move to OSI-approved licenses. This move will help drive increased innovation and improve overall software quality. The change was effective with the release of Zimbra Collaboration 8.5 and more information is available in the press release or on Zimbra.com for Zimbra Collaboration Open Source Edition specific information.
Zimbra constantly looks for ways to improve our productsâ security and privacy. Also, we take the responsibility of being a good member and guardian of an open source project seriously.
In an effort to improve transparency and communication, Zimbra introduced the Zimbra Security Center. If you to review our security programâs practices or policies, visit Zimbra.com for more.
