After eight months of intense development and tests, BlueMind 3.0 is available.
This new release improves the collaborative features with the new instant messaging and enhances user experience with its new search engine, tags support, Mac application Calendar synchronization (CalDAV protocol), better Windows support and many other features.
1. New Features
1.1 Instant Messaging
The main innovation in this 3.0 release is the instant messaging integration, server and client, with :
Standard XMPP protocol
Integrated web client
Multiple individual or group chats
1.2 Full text search in webmail
A rich and efficient search engine for the webmail. The full text search is now based on the elasticsearch engine which brings :
Multi-directories and multi-mailboxes search
Archived mails and attachments are also indexed
In order to keep the global architecture consistency, calendar and contact search has been moved to elasticsearch too.
Categorize and select your events and contacts with global or personal tags.
1.4 CalDAV Support and Mac Calendar Synchronization
The support of CalDAV protocol allows you to synchronize BlueMind with your MaxOSX Calendar (Lion or above).
1.5 SSO AD Kerberos
The Windows single sign-on allows users to automatically be logged into their BlueMind when they log into their computer.

3.1 BlueMind 3.0 Documentation
Read the complete BlueMind documentation : usage, installation, administration of BlueMind 3.0: https://forge.blue-mind.net/confluence/
3.2 Update from 2.0 Version
Be aware that update needs a BlueMind subscription
Always do a backup before updating
Indexing : In order to make the new search engine available after the update, data have to be re-indexed. This may take a while depending on their volume. The old IMAP search is still active as long as a mailbox has not been indexed.
On RedHat, 2 operations are necessary : the execution of a command before the upgrade and a manipulation after for certificates.
