Just wondering about the prevailing opinion of the newest patch?

My system is almost working perfectly, but there are still some lingering issues...

-- attaching PDF's to emails creates duplicate attachment
-- high CPU utilization with multiple calendars open
-- duplicate emails being sent (two copies go out to recipient)

should i upgrade?

I wouldnt bother, it looks as though there are issues with the stability of 7.4:
Active syncs causing crashes/freezes on some server OS.
Logs are reading incorrectly.
I've noticed we never had high CPU with 7.3 and now we DO have high cpu since 7.4 upgrade ... i think they've done an 'apple' and let us be guinea pigs for this release... sigh.
Major non beta release 7.4 ... mmm..

thanks, but unfortunately i already did it.

I have a bug in the system that i can't seem to track down. i was hoping the patch would fix it, but still no luck.

the patch went in fine, but now my CPU is spiked.

i may have to crack out my credit card and go through Kerio...

After reading of all the bugs in 7.4, I sure am thankful I didn't install it yet. It makes me wonder who is doing beta testing. This is a major revision change. You'd think they would have tested it better before releasing it. Bugs in Connect affect ENTIRE companies, not just a single user. I wish they had a better grip on the whole "mission critical" thing.....

On the contrary... KC 7.4 was a saving grace for us.

It has re-allowed us to do calendar delegation in Outlook 2011 without bringing the server to it's knees.

Haven't experienced any downside to it yet.

That's the thing, isn't it? I haven't heard any cries of outrage from my customers - and 7.4 has fixed things that were annoyingly broken in 7.3.

Of course not all have upgraded yet, so someone still could stumble across a problem as Jonathan apparently has. These things happen: Kerio can't conceive of every possible configuration, never mind test every one.

Just because you have a problem or don't have a problem doesn't mean that someone else won't have a different experience. We all know that, but it helps to be reminded of it now and then.

7.4 is not "broken". No doubt rough edges will always remain and sometimes things snag on rough edges. That doesn't mean YOU will have a problem.
