Major Update 7.8 / Atmail ActiveSync 2.2.10

Stewart -

Release Overview

Release Date:  12th July 2016
Release Version: v7.8.0

Warnings & User Notices:

Atmail 7.8 contains significant upgrades to core services, including SabreDAV. Please note: this upgrade to SabreDAV requires the migration of database tables from the old schema to the latest schema packaged with Sabre 3.0.9.

Minimum PHP version has increased to PHP version 5.4.  Atmail now supports CentOS 7.

Important: Your user DAV uri paths will change!

This means that your users will have to change their 3rd party clients to follow the uri format below:

Principal, calendar and addressbook uris will change from "principals/users/user@domain" to "principals/user@domain", from "calendars/users/user@domain" to "calendars/user@domain" and "addressbooks/users/user@domain" to "addressbooks/user@domain".

Please be aware that that upgrade process contains a migration script from sabre/dav 1.8.9 to 3.0.9 database schema and values. As such this upgrade will interrupt the dav service until the migration process has completed.
