We're proud to announce Group-Office 6.4. In this release we've completely redesigned the address book, custom fields system settings and more!
The address book was completely redesigned with a modern look and feel. It's easier to use and integrates in other modules.
You can read more about it in the manual here:
The address book is the first module to use the new custom filters feature. You can create reusable filters with your own conditions. They also work great in combination with custom fields.

Advanced query syntaxWith the new advanced query syntax you can target very specific contacts in your searches.
NewslettersThe newsletters module is an easy tool to manage address lists and send out newsletters. Using powerful templates you can personalise your messages.
It's built in a way it can also use different modules as source for newsletters. This way it can integrate in a custom module too.
More information can be found in the manual:
The global search has a better look and usability improvements. Using full text indexing it's also much faster on large databases.
Custom fields have been redesigned to use the new framework. Custom fields can be added as tabs to dialogs or as field sets to the main properties tab.

Comments have a shiny new look:
Users and groups can be synchronised now.
A widely missed feature in 6.3 was managing module permissions per user group. This is back now:
You can now manage the default permissions new items like calendars, address books, task lists etc. get when they are created.
The bookmarks module backend has been refactored to work with the new framework.
