Dear Customers and Partners of Open-Xchange, 

Open-Xchange is pleased to announce the release of OX App Suite v7.8.0, OX Documents v7.8.0, OX SE v6.22.10 and OX Guard v2.2.0 for Univention Corporate Server v4.0.

The main focus for this release is an improved web frontend design and usability enhancements for all applications. With OX App Suite v7.8.0 and OX Documents v7.8.0, Open-Xchange has made significant improvements to the overall design concept, improving navigation and helping users maximize the benefits of the App Suite interface.

- Sharing, Guest mode and Publication Concept
OX App Suite v7.8.0 introduces a new way to collaborate and share content with both internal and external users. This new feature replaces and greatly improves on the previous publication & subscription mechanism. OX App Suite users can now work together with external users with a new “guest mode”. This gives external users access to a limited OX App Suite user interface in order to work/collaborate on content such as folders, files (read & write), contacts (read), task (read) and appointments (read).

- OX Drive - New Look & Feel
The OX Drive web frontend has also been enhanced. A new content viewer, with enhanced functionality, is now available. This includes folder navigation with breadcrumb and many other enhancements.

- OX Calendar - New Design-Level
OX Calendar has benefitted from many new design and usability updates. The design changes have made the calendar much more readable and easier to use. In addition OX App Suite v7.8.0 introduces multiple “Time Zone” support and the ability to “Colorize” appointments, folders and whole calendars.

- OX Mail - Improved usability for all Situations
OX Mail has also benefitted from many new updates including a new compose dialog. This new dialog, among other features, provides users with the ability to move recipients between the To and Cc fields using drag and drop.

- OX Text - Headers and Footers
Headers and footers are often used in longer documents to keep them organized and make them easier to read. With this release of OX Text it is now possible to edit or create headers and footers. 

- OX Spreadsheet - Function Wizard and Conditional Formatting
With this version OX Spreadsheet now provides some new usability features like a function wizard or conditional formatting.

- Present Online
OX Documents introduces a new way to work with existing PowerPoint presentations.

Additionally, Open-Xchange is pleased to announce the release of OX Guard v2.2.0. 

OX App Suite v7.8.0 bring with it a new OX Mail web frontend. This includes changes to the mail compose dialog and general behavior within the app. Due to new design changes implemented in OX App Suite v7.8.0, OX Guard has now been brought inline with this new compose window. This means the repositioning of the ‘Lock’ icon and the addition of a new dropdown link called “Security”.

In addition to these changes OX Guard v2.2.0 comes complete with a guided tour that can be triggered from within the OX Mail and OX Drive apps. It is also available from the user settings within OX Guard.
