I have installed the latest version last night and the following is still outstanding

1. INBOX auto refresh does not work, this is by far the biggest problem :o
2. Calendar Sharing does not work
3. Out of Office does not sync properly to server

Guys we can not sell a defective product to clients.

Congratulations thanks for the new release 4.0

Please verify the webadmin interface, it gives errors in the option " users and computers ", at boottime there is also an error with starting nginx.
This two errors does not occurs before the latest upgrade of release 4.0

Best regards,
Ian

This. The state that this has been released in is horrifyingly bad, and the Zentyal devs should be ashamed of it.

I am starting to think that they know it sucks, they just want to appear to be making leaps and strides in the act of replacing Microsoft Exchange to boost sales of the non-free product.

I am challenging J. A. Calvo  to answer what is going on with mailbox auto refresh and other promised futures regarding Open Change. I hope the Moderator will not delete my post. Seriously at this stage Zentyal is not replacement of AD  and MS Exchange server. Please prove me wrong!  >:(

It will eventually be fixed by the devs. Meanwhile, instead of complaining, if you guys open a bug report it can not be overlooked.
Zentyal 3.5 is a few months old and still has issues. Just be patient.

Cheers.

Hello:

Upgrade from 3.5, as release notes say will be done . Please give us some time to make sure it will work ;):

Quote
The migration from Zentyal 3.5 to 4.0, will be published shortly. After upgrading to the new 3.5 package a button will appear on the dashboard.

Automatic migration path from the latest commercial version (Zentyal Server 3.2 SP2) will be provided as well. The migration process will be made available in a few weeks in order to consolidate the scenario.


Regarding autorefresh, we have done some work regarding this but unfortunately it has not been possible to include it for this release. We'll continue working at it, give for granted, and hopefully we might include this in some upgrade.


Regarding Calendar and Out-of-the-Office, please post bug reports on tracker portal, as Scorpion suggests

Cheers

There is a way to configure a polling mechanism in the client that could mitigate this problem for some use cases:
