the new UI

Postby oetiker » Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:14 pm

I have Installed Zimbra 8.8.Beta but I can't see the new UI it looks still the same with good old harmony
Is there a configuration needed?

Zimbra 8.8.0_BETA1_1712 (build 20170615062344)

cheers Manuel

Hello Manuel,
For the Beta of 8.8 we will not include the new UI. We will deliver an alternative build when we have 8.8 GA, this means, you will go to our website and you can choose:
  • ZCS 8.8 GA - with old harmony template and usual support, etc.
  • ZCS 8.8 GA_UnivUI - with the new theme by default installed for ALL users, so this will help you to transition upgrading one Mailbox at a time

To the next question, no, Universal UI can't be enabled "just" like a template, it's a new development, like we changed from ZCS 7 to 8, and from 8 to 8.5, etc.

Best reagrds!

Hi Jorge

thanks for your quick answer. It is just a bit convulsing seeing the UI first on the list and now it is not available at all in the beta...

Hello,
You can find a 8.7.11 OSE, for development only, here, since March:
https://zimbra.org/extend/items/view/be ... iversal-ui

That is a build with the new UI, no Admin Console, just Zimbra 8.7.11 OSE with new UI.

For 8.8 with new UI we will need to wait a bit.

I knew that. And I even made an install with split node which provide ability to have classic or new ui and the admin ui still working.
But I was thinking it could have been a good decision to provide 8.8 new ui for beta test with all features.

Hi DualBoot,
Yes I agree, unfortunately we couldn't add it to the first beta due to a bug we have with the Admin Console, and ZCS 8.8 come with a lot of new stuff in the Admin Console, for NE. This will be resolved in the 8.8 GA

Once again, you won't get HSP/BSP to use the new version of ZCS (8.7 was a disaster from this point of view) if they can't beta-test it fully.
That means the new UI and the "new" admin UI, etc

Unless you consider that 8.8 GA is actually 8.8 RC and the real GA will be 8.8.1 or 8.8.2.

Thanks Klug,
We will try our best to have a Build with Univ UI for the Beta testing.
