Dear community members, developers and EGroupware users,

Stylite AG is happy to announce the second 16.1 release candidate.

It contains following changes and fixes to 16.1RC1:

SQL state backend is used now
* eSync: Z-Push 2.3 allows to sync Outlook 2013 & 2016
* Mail/Api: replace decrecated Mcrypt PHP extension with OpenSSL, use
AES128 with pbkdf2 streching of passwords
* PGP: renamed (hidden) backup-file in users home-directory to
* InfoLog: change description to longtext (4GB) to not overflow on long
comments or PGP encrypted files
* Addressbook/Mail: fix PHP Fatal error when clicking on "add new
contact" icon in mail
* Resources: fix PHP Fatal call to undefined method
Api\Accounts::get_list() when editing ACL
* Mail: fix PHP Fatal error when saving Sieve scripts
* ImportExport: scheduled im/exports fail with PHP Fatal error
* Filemanager/Projectmanager: fix broken layout when showing
/apps/projectmanager eg. opening Filemanager from PM
* Setup: some authtication types eg. Cas were not shown in setup
* API: async service failed to run on a default install (no phpgwapi)
* Admin: fix async service testjob to run on a default install (no phpgwapi)
* Mail: fix PHP Fatal when switching identities

16.1 contains many new features and improvements, just to name a few:

* Calendar: complete rewrite of user interface for improved
functionality, drag&drop, context menu
* Mobile: new mobile phone and tablet user interface, offering compact
display for mobile phones
* Desktop: new brighter desktop template, lots of work on usability
and look & feel
* Mail/InfoLog: PGP end-to-end encryption using Mailvelope plugin
(InfoLog requires EPL subscription)
* eSync: update to Z-Push 2.3 fixing several Android problems

Please note, the changed minimum requirement of PHP 5.4+, recommended
5.6 or 7.0. It means you need at least a Debian7, Ubuntu 14.04, RHEL 7
(6 with IUS repo) or openSUSE 13.1 or SLE 12. Recommendation is of
course always to use a current distribution, e.g. Ubuntu 16.04 or
RHEL/CentOS 7 with PHP 7.

Recommended installation packages are available in a separate
server:eGroupware:trunk repository on build.opensuse.org:

EGroupware sources are managed on Github since a couple of weeks:


Above page also contains installation instructions for installation via
git with myrepos tool and archives.

Alternatively to a test installation of 16.1 on an own server,
EGroupware is available as a trial service of the Stylite computing center.

Please help testing the release candidate. We┬┤re looking forward to your
feedback on our Facebook page:


Final release is currently planned for beginning of July 2016.

Happy testing
