WebApp 3.5.3 pre-final available


  • Kopano

    This release introduces prefetch feature that fetches the body of emails after login, resulting in a snappier performance when reading emails.

    There are two new config options related to this feature. https://stash.kopano.io/projects/KW/repos/kopano-webapp/browse/config.php.dist#185

    • The amount of items to prefetch
    • The prefetch interval

    The amount of items that are fetched per batch is currently not configurable and set to 5.

    Further improvements are

    • Fixed bug in Mattermost plugin for WebApp related to DeskApp download behavior. If you experience download issues from the Mattermost plugin while using DeskApp consider upgrading to this version.
    • You can choose to use English abbreviations for reply, forward when using a non-English (Setting found in Email settings)
    • Additional categories specified by the admin now extend the user categories. When a user makes any change to this category, it will be saved it the user categories.

    The changelog can be found here.

    Updating can be done through the repositories, packages can be downloaded from the portal or from the download server. For community members nightly packages are available here.

    If you have feedback, we’d love to hear it here in the forum.



  • A question:

    Does the prefetch only work for the INBOX folder?

    I.e. is it possible to have it say so that it runs on all favourite folders (or by default at least on the sent items and say deleted items)?

    Actually after having played with it a little bit perhaps the behaviour is that it pre-fetches the batch of 5 emails of whichever folder you open…

    The question is: could some folders always be pre-fetched even if you do not have that folder opened.

    This way you could switch say from Inbox to one of your favourite folders and the switch would be instant…

    It would go a long way to make it fast I think.

    No , for the folder that is open.

    Good idea to look into.

    I think it would be an amazing enhancement.

    If I look at my own personal use, I keep flicking from one favourite folder to another all day.

    If they pre-load, it means that Webapp would essentially become super fast and instant for the users!

    A massive performance improvement…

    So you could set the pre-fetched folders to be the same as the favourite folders and job done…
