Update: University Collaboration Suite (UCS) Software Upgrade – Saturday, August 1

On Saturday, August 1, 2015, during an extended maintenance window (5:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.), Information Technology Services (ITS) will upgrade the software supporting the University Collaboration Suite (UCS) to Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) version 8.6.0 Patch 3. This software upgrade will address many bug fixes and feature enhancements.

Members of the University community utilizing UCS will not be able to send or receive e-mail and/or calendar appointments while the upgrade is occurring.

No messages will be lost during the upgrade. When the upgrade is complete all queued messages will be processed.

Enhancements and bug fixes addressed in ZCS version 8.6.0 Patch 3 include:
-Within the web client, a copied image can be pasted directly into the html editor body of an email
-The ability to drag and drop a recurring, all-day event onto calendar(s) properly
-A correct URL is generated for selected file(s) within a shared briefcase

A new Zimbra Connector for Outlook is available at downloads.its.psu.edu. The updated Connector may be installed at anytime, as it works with versions previous to 8.6.0. Current Outlook users are not required to install the new Connector prior to August 1, but will need to do so following the upgrade in order to take advantage of the new feature enhancements and bug fixes.
