Open-Xchange releases OX App Suite v7.10.1, OX Documents v7.10.1 and OX Guard v2.10.1

Open-Xchange is pleased to announce the release of OX App Suite v7.10.1, OX Documents v7.10.1 and OX Guard v2.10.1.

As always, Open-Xchange has worked hard to improve the usability and functionality of its products, and this release is no exception. In addition to new features and functionality this release also includes usability updates based on ongoing usability testing.

OX App Suite v7.10.1

OX App Suite is a modular platform designed for Telco’s, Hosters, and other Service Providers and delivers a wide range of cloud-based services. These include email, file sharing, collaborative document editing, document management, time management, cloud storage and metrics for monitoring end-user behavior. Enhancements to the OX App Suite platform in this release include:

  • Next Generation Calendar Improvements
    OX App Suite v7.10.1 introduces usability improvements for OX Calendar like cancel-reasons, improved folder selection, clickable links in appointment fields (e.g. title fields), changing appointment series with exceptions and automatically declining an appointment when deleting it.
  • Improved Notifications
    OX Calendar also comes with improved push-behavior and the ability to send out email notifications. Users simply need to use the new “Mail” option in the reminder settings for an appointment. This then schedules a reminder email for the appointment. The email also contains information about the appointment.
  • Additional Security Options
    With this new release Open-Xchange introduces an editable whitelist to the product. This allows specified domains, or senders, to be automatically authorized. Email content from domains listed on the whitelist, i.e. from trusted sources, are loaded without any additional confirmation.
  • Enhancements for Cloud Deployments
    The OX App Suite 7.10.1 middleware has been enhanced, and endorsed, for being run in the Amazon Web Services environment. Open-Xchange has reviewed the service portfolio of Amazon Web Services and functionally tested it for better compatibility with certain AWS platform services.

OX Documents v7.10.1

For service providers looking to attract customers, OX Documents is the perfect hook. Fully integrated into OX App Suite, OX Documents now includes the following new features:

  • Faster Previewing of Documents
    Text documents, spreadsheets and presentations with embedded metafiles such as drawings, charts or OLE-objects can now be previewed much faster. This significantly improves the user experience of OX Documents.
  • Web Optimized PDF
    The OX Documents Viewer now uses “linearized” PDF. This allows for a streaming-like behavior to view documents one page at a time without downloading the entire PDF first. This provides users with an immediate preview of the selected file.
  • Zooming Improvements
    Images in the OX Documents Viewer can now be zoomed in and zoomed out via double click and tap. In addition, there are now zoom buttons for images and a new option to start a slideshow for images.

OX Guard v2.10.1 for OX App Suite v7.10.1

With this new release, Open-Xchange integrates OX Guard even more closely with OX App Suite, particularly when composing and reading emails.
