AfterLogic Aurora 7.4 with OpenPGP, shared contacts, new skins

Thursday, 18 September 2014
This week we released the new version of our flagship groupware and business e-mail platform, AfterLogic Aurora. It delivers:

  • OpenPGP support
  • Google Drive and Dropbox integration
  • New skins
  • Shared address book with CardDAV sync
  • New ways to export and import contacts and calendar data
  • Branding with your own logo
  • Desktop notifications
  • Download e-mail as PDF file
  • Compose e-mail in RTL mode (for Arabic and Hebrew)

OpenPGP is fully client-side, no secure data ever transmitted to the server or elsewhere. PGP keys are saved in Local storage of the browser (private keys are also encrypted for better security), all the crypto is performed right in the browser either.

Google Drive and Dropbox integration lets users attach files from these cloud storage services when composing e-mails. And there is Files module which implements your own cloud storage of personal and corporate files. Files module can be used as the source of attachments just the same way.

It's also possible to pin a Google Docs file or any other URL to make it appear in Files as "document". This creates a shortcut which always delivers you the latest version of the file under that URL - the convenient way to work with documents together.

Shared address book lets users make popular contacts available for all teammates. While Global address book (Team) is populated automatically, Shared is edited by users.

New ways to work with contacts also include export and import of vCard/VCF files.

Calendar module now also supports export and import of all the data. The user can drag-n-drop iCal file to the grid to add all the events from there. Calendar properties menu provides commands to import and export event data by other means.

With desktop notifications, your users will never miss a new e-mail even if the currently opened window is not Aurora. Still, with the extended set of both colorful and ascetic skins they will likely spend more time in that window.

We also made hundreds of smaller improvements and fixes scattered everywhere across the system. And there is the updated documentation which now contains descriptions of many PHP API classes.
