    Default Pre-Announcement of next Major Release 6.22 - Discontinued OXtenders

    Pre-Announcement of next Major Release 6.22 - Discontinued OXtenders

    The new Open-Xchange Server v6.22, scheduled September 2012 is the first step on the way to the next generation Open-Xchange Server 7. The update provides a new and improved Open-Xchange Server backend with enhancements for both generations.

    Especially on the backend, Open-Xchange implemented various changes and improvements like a new and clear structure for the configuration files and packages, an improved exception framework, unified OSGi, etc.

    Open-Xchange plans to limit the amount of manual changes required by administrators and if possible the execution of changes is automated. With the official launch in September, Open-Xchange will provide a special Update Portal at the Knowledge Base with all necessary information. There will also be a complete overview document for a successful update to the new major version. Open-Xchange will provide the documentation in time for the launch.

    In addition to the backend changes, Open-Xchange discontinues the following OXtenders:

    • OXtender 1 for Microsoft Outlook
      Open-Xchange will discontinue the support for OXtender 1 for Microsoft Outlook with the new release v6.22. Additional, at the new backend, the Open-Xchange WebDAV XML API will no longer be officially supported. Open-Xchange will provide an automatic upgrade path to the OXtender 2 for Microsoft Outlook. This will also be part of the Update documentation which will be provided for the final launch.
    • OXtender for SyncML
      Open-Xchange will discontinue the support for OXtender for SyncML with the new release v6.22. OXtender for SyncML was a server-side plugin based on the Open-Xchange USM synchronization framework. For further synchronization of mobile devices, the OXtender for Business Mobility is still available for all valid customers.

    Open-Xchange will discontinue the support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and CentOS 5 with a further release in Q4 2012. As users of RHEL 5 and CentOS 5, we encourage you to plan an update to the latest operating system versions.

    If you have further questions, don't hesitate to contact your Open-Xchange Account Manager.
