Dear Customers of Open-Xchange,

This Patch Release fixes bugs of Open-Xchange Server 6 v6.20.1 for all Open-Xchange Server Edition, Open-Xchange Hosting Edition, Open-Xchange Advanced Server Edition and Open-Xchange Server Edition for UCS. We encourage administrators of Open-Xchange 6 v6.20.1 to install this update. The Public Patch Release is available for all customers with a valid Open-Xchange license.

Please Note:
With this release, three new properties have been introduced. They allow to influence the behavior of initially created HttpSessions. The properties limit the time of dead HttpSessions in the memory, as the general limit of 1 week proved to be too long for these initially created sessions.

The new properties operate on the timeframe between the request when initially creating a HttpSession, and the next request on that HttpSession. If a second request to such a HttpSession isn't done in the timeframe specified by com.openexchange.servlet.maxInactiveInterval (by default 30 minutes) the HttpSession is removed. This removal takes place in the interval given by com.openexchange.servlet.sessionCleanerInterval in milliseconds.

Furthermore it's now possible to limit the number of the HttpSessions in advance so that no client can create an unlimited number of them. The property for limiting the number of HttpSessions is called com.openexchange.servlet.maxActiveSessions.

- Open-Xchange Server 6 (Version: v6.20.1 Rev 7 built between 2012-02-16 and 2012-02-20)
