Zimbra 7 Is Generally Available

We are excited to announce Zimbra 7 is generally available. A heartfelt thanks goes out to the many contributors, beta testers, supporters and bug filers who provided valuable feedback and guidance throughout the development cycle.

There are over 200 new features; many focused on creating even better enterprise productivity, especially around scheduling and file management, as well as significant work on extending openness and improved manageability.
