first of all, happy holidays.
Scalix 11.5 is our next functional release, it'll have some interesting new stuff, some of which i've mentioned, and it'll be ready when it's fully baked, probably sometime early next year, i.e. Q1.
The more interesting question to those who're asking ... what specifically are you looking for in that product? I agree with a previous comment - 11.4.x (now .6) is a highly stable and reliable product covering a wide range of needs. We've added lots of stability and new stuff - mostly in mobility - over the last year, so IMHO most customers should be quite happy with our performance.
In terms of roadmap, I agree that in principle having something like this would be 'nice' - however, this is a very dynamic playing field, we're working in all kinds of directions and for some experimental things it's always unclear how long it takes to get them together - so much for project management: the estimates I get from dev vary by the day, so in the meantime I've made this an opportunity rather than an issue and simply accept variance as a fact of live in software development. So.... we do our work, once stuff get's near-ready we see if it's enough to fit a release together, then we do some welding, and off we go.
With the exception of a few things some people are specifically waiting for, this seems to create the most happiness.
What's certainly in for the next round:
- Tasks/Todos in SWA
- Safari/Webkit Support in SWA
- Paging in SWA - more efficient loading/filtering/large folder management
- new archiving functionality.
- better integrated hosting and delegated administration
- free/busy v2.0 working with caldav and activesync and bes devices
- generally improved calendar interop
- sles11 support
and maybe.... a few more surprises.
I'm using 11.5 as we speak, and I'm pretty happy with it.....
Cheers, have a good run into the new year, and stay tuned,
