Administrators may now choose a Class of Service (COS) in the Domain creation window. This innovation allows for the direct assignment of COS during the construction of new domains, which speeds up the setup procedure.

CO-870: Implementation of the Auth Healthcheck API

The Carbonio now has an improved Auth Healthcheck API, which speeds up response times and eliminates the requirement for consensus checks on other nodes. This improvement seeks to minimise response times, especially when one or more nodes are down, and avoids the need to increase timeout numbers.

During the installation of Carbonio Advanced, the programme now installs a new Consul token. The programme uses this token, which is available at /etc/carbonio/mailbox/service-discover/token.

FILES-729: Creating public folder access connections

This functionality allows you to create public folder access links. The feature is meant to serve a certain purpose. For example, whilst the link is live, it is accessible, but it becomes invalid when it expires or is revoked. Furthermore, only users with edit permission may establish the link, making this operation unavailable to others.

FILES-733: Access to public folder links

A new functionality has been included in this version to make it easier to access public files via links. Enabling the public folder link lets anybody with the link to view the contents of the folder. If the connection expires, gets revoked, or does not exist, an error notice will be presented.

FILES-736: Viewing and interacting with public folders

Viewing and interacting with public folders now adheres to authorised permission standards. The existing public folder link policy assures that anybody having the public link may easily read and download the contents of the folder. A read-only permission policy is applied by default, prohibiting anybody other than the folder owner from uploading, editing, deleting, or modifying the folder’s content.

IRIS-3508: Improved Calendar header button placement

The arrangement of the calendar’s header buttons has been enhanced, ensuring appropriate space between buttons. The buttons for the Week and Today no longer overlap, delivering a better visual experience.

IRIS-4889: Optimising editor performance.

By using useMemo in editor hooks and reorganising logic into sub-components, the editor’s efficiency has improved. These enhancements reduce the need for re-rendering, resulting in greater efficiency for the editor.

IRIS-4894: Improved contact lookup in shared address books

Improved contact search capabilities in shared account address books. Selecting a sender identity connected to a shared account in the mail editor now enables auto-complete in the to/cc/bcc fields, taking into consideration contacts in that shared account’s address books.

AC-762: Admin console backup progress alerts BUGFIX LIST

When you initiate a backup using the Admin panel backup button, the status of the backup should now be presented on the dashboard alerts area as well as via email.

In a multi-server setup, the dashboard notification table now displays notifications for all servers, overcoming the prior constraint of just showing the most recently added server alerts.

Individual user sessions may now be filtered and ended in the account information area. This addition enables administrators to manage user sessions more efficiently by allowing them to browse through sessions and cancel them as needed.

AC-832: Domain Settings COS name visibility

In the Domain General Settings, the Class of Service (COS) name is now displayed.

AC-856: Improved background image ratio in whitelabel settings

The background image ratio is now respected in the white-label settings. The requirements are available to administrators under the Background for the Login Page section: “The image must have a minimum resolution of 1280×720, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and be less than 800KB in size.”

AC-859: MTA Configuration of outbound flows in the admin UI

Admins have more flexibility now that text fields in the ‘Outbound Flow’ section are editable, allowing for easy customisation of global parameters such as the relay host.

AC-871: Distribution list subdomain validation

When adding members to distribution lists, the software has been changed to allow correct validation of subdomains including dashes (-). Members with subdomains in the type “” can now be entered by administrators without facing validation issues.

AC-885: Antivirus attribute update corrected

This modification guarantees that adding, updating, and deleting MTA ‘Antivirus & Spam’ options in the Carbonio Web Admin interface updates the characteristics appropriately. It resolves the prior problem in which some changes were handled incorrectly.

AC-894: The administrator can add several virtualHosts.

Using the admin panel, administrators may now quickly add several VirtualHosts to the domain for more customisation and flexibility.

BCK-695: setBackupVolume cache has been repaired.

Fixed an issue that allowed the setBackupVolume command to fail to delete its cache, resulting in a duplicate of the blobs remaining in the metadata path. Blobs are now only saved in the appropriate volume.

CO-860: Fixed Calendar Free/Busy for MacOS

Resolved an issue that previously prohibited the MacOS Calendar’s Free/Busy functionality from operating. When adding guests to an appointment, availability is now accurately shown.

CO-899: Upgrade Issue from Version 23.11 to Version 23.12 Resolved

The upgrade problem from version 23.11 to version 23.12 has been corrected. The problem was caused by a clash between the carbonio-common-appserver-db and carbonio-appserver-db packages, which necessitated the removal of the former before installing the latter. For the upgrading procedure, developers used ‘apt full-upgrade’ and ‘dnf distro-sync’.

CO-901: Configuration of enhanced virtual host response headers

The Proxy Generator “libexec/zmproxyconfgen” has been updated to retrieve information from the Domain configuration rather than the Global configuration, which improves the processing of virtual host response headers.

CO-913: AppServer upgrade dependency problem has been resolved.

During the upgrade from 23.11 to 23.12, a conflict between carbonio-common-appserver-db and carbonio-appserver-db was resolved. For a smooth resolution, developers utilised apt full-upgrade and dnf distro-sync.

CO-932: Fixed backup on external storage.

The server configuration now includes the volumeRootPath property, which was previously missing. The backup to external storage is now operational.

COR-972: Delegated administrator fine-tunes Public service settings

Delegated administrators may now change the PublicServiceHostname, protocol, and port settings.

COR-1012: Fixed the “Max Manageable Accounts for a Domain” option, allowing zero “0” for limitless accounts.

COR-1019: Corrected notice sending scope.

Previously, when carbonioNotificationRecipients was set to delegate admin, notification emails were delivered to the Global Admin rather than the Delegated Domain Admin. This problem has been fixed, and notifications are now being forwarded to the delegated administrator as intended.

After cancelling a drag-and-drop operation using the ESC key, users can now click on the target folder.

IRIS-3728: Fixed the presentation of calendar appointment descriptions.

IRIS-3733: Improved ‘Reply All’ functionality in shared accounts

The ‘Reply All’ feature in a shared account has been changed to automatically populate the recipient list in the editor with the sender and recipients from the original email, except the sender’s own address. The sender was included in the recipient list in the previous version of the ‘Reply All’ function.

IRIS-4682: Configurable signature editing

This feature allows users to easily change their email signatures from the ‘Signatures’ section of Settings. Users may now simply alter current signatures, add new ones, and revert to earlier signatures, resulting in a more flexible and user-friendly experience.

IRIS-4706: Radio component fixed in custom modal

The Calendar’s radio component in the Custom modal now picks alternatives appropriately, resolving the prior issue of unpredictable behaviour in which picking one radio affected another.

IRIS-4753: Enhancements to configurable recurring appointment checks

Improved the Calendar radio component in the Custom modal for a better user experience.

IRIS-4802: Mail editor format selection has been corrected.

Previously, the mail editor ignored the specified text format and always utilised rich text. This problem has been resolved, and the mail editor now appropriately adheres to the text format selected.

IRIS-4836: Improved Reply/Forward for Unknown Subject

This improvement enhances the system’s behaviour by allowing users to reply to or forward emails even when the topic field is blank or empty. Such emails will be automatically assigned a blank topic by the system, preventing mistakes during these procedures.

IRIS-4838: Appointment modification shows correct dates
Appointment change now appropriately shows start and end dates, especially in the case of series with all-day activities spanning more than one day. The editor accurately displays the desired dates, resolving the prior issue in which it incorrectly displayed the current time.

IRIS-4851: Fixed email scrolling regression fault
This update resolves an issue in which scrolling through lengthy emails in the Mail module for roughly a minute might suddenly reset the display to the top, interfering with seamless and uninterrupted reading.

IRIS-4857: Added Trash to the improved folder selector
The Trash folder is now included in the folder choice for the ‘Move into folder’ action in filters. Simply choose the Trash folder.

IRIS-4891: Event organiser configuration assurance
Event organiser is now correctly configured, allowing for the proper creation and modification of new appointments in both shared and personal calendars.

IRIS-4927: Automatic appointment removal for damaged Calendars
When broken calendars are removed from the UI, all related appointments are automatically removed. This provides a consistent and accurate user experience while manipulating calendar data.

PS-467: Improvements to HSM policy scheduling
HSM policies now work in accordance with the scheduler that has been specified in Linux. Messages are being moved from one store to another as per the cron task ‘carbonio powerstore doMoveBlobs start’.

PS-472: Improved Unset Powerstore move scheduler
The powerstoreMoveScheduler has now been upgraded at the server level, and when unset, it reverts to the default setting.

SHELL-173: Localised unsaved modal changes
The unsaved changes modal, including its title, buttons, and tooltip, now translates appropriately based on the user’s language selection in the UI settings.
