Sogo 5 released
« on: August 22, 2020, 12:41:09 PM »
Sogo 5 has been released - https://sogo.nu/news/2020/sogo-v500-released.html

Centos6 is still supported - https://sogo.nu/support/faq/how-to-install-sogo-and-sope-through-yum.html

Updating my system from sogo4 to sogo5 went smoothly:

Create new sogo5 repository
Code: [Select]
db yum_repositories set sogo5 repository \
BaseURL 'http://packages.inverse.ca/SOGo/nightly/5/rhel/6/$basearch' \
EnableGroups yes \
GPGCheck no \
Name 'Inverse Sogo5 Repository' \
Visible yes \
status disabled

The install notes say to exclude gnustep-* from the epel repo.  The default SME instructions for the Epel repo include 'Exclude perl-Razor-Agent', so we'll add gnustep-* to that:
Code: [Select]
db yum_repositories setprop epel Exclude 'perl-Razor-Agent,gnustep-*'

Expand the yum template and clear the cache:
Code: [Select]
expand-template /etc/yum.smerepos.d/sme-base.repo
yum clean all

My system already had some gnustep packages installed from epel, so I forcefully removed them using rpm:
Code: [Select]
# list installed gnustep packages
rpm -qa gnustep-*

# remove them
rpm -e --nodeps gnustep-make gnustep-filesystem gnustep-base

Now update sogo (and reinstall gnustep dependencies):
Code: [Select]
yum --enablerepo=sogo5 update

Sogo webmail now appears to work but my mobile email using ActiveSync was not updating to reflect changes made in webmail.

It is possible that restarting the sogod service (service sogod restart) would have fixed this, but I did:
Code: [Select]
signal-event post-upgrade ; signal-event reboot

After rebooting, my phone appears to be sending and receiving email correctly, and respecting the 'mail days to sync' setting in the account configuration.

Tested on Myself.
After taking a snappshot on VM I've performed an in-place upgrade over my latest SOGO3 installation according to mmccarn suggestions/directions.
The upgrade went fine, after restart no errors in /var/log/sogo/sogo.log.
Sending/receiving mail from within SOGo is fine.
Made some test for calendar with TB 68 and Inverse plugin 68.1: able to write/delete tasks and activities on both end with regular sync.
Going to do further tests from iPhone.

No news about TB 78 :-x : actually Inverse seems not having released a TB78 compatible plugin. There's the option that a generic CAL/CARDDAV generic option may work fine (this seems working with Horde5).

Other news in next days.

Try the TbSync plugin. First time it syncs contacts it sets them all to 'prefers to receive messages as text'. Export the contacts and reimport them, they are then set to unknown, TB then sends as HTML.

Made some tests with TB78 and horde 5: it seems that the actual Lightning (no more a plugin but integrated in TB) has built-in CARD/CALDAV capabilities.
Going to perform same tests with SOGo
