Hello,

we have just released Z-Push 2.4.0 beta1 (tag 2.4.0.beta1 commit 84c366b8debcfc691c2905a491be4ade8b63834d) and would like to invite you to try it.

Main feature of this version (so far) is the support of ActiveSync 14.1.
This new ActiveSync version has features which are implemented as stubs, like RightsManagement, but no backend uses this functionality yet.

With the Kopano backend the GAB search shows you saved pictures of users on the mobile now for devices which support it (iOS and some Android devices).

This version now also brings configuration packages for NGINX that also supports PHP-FPM.

We changed the user based logging. Now every user/device combination logs into a separate log file, when a user is in the special log users.

For statically configured folders (via config.php) now it is possible to configure flags.

This Z-Push version supports impersonating in KOE.

Some smaller performance improvements.

We want also to thank all our community contributors and for valuable feedback: Andreas, Bart, Chris, Christian, Karl, Nicolas, Roel, Vincent, Yano! Keep up the good work.
