Blue Mind 2.0 is available after 6 months of intensive coding and testing.
The 1.0 release last year had met great reception from customers and partners and settled Blue Mind as the major Open Source alternative for Exchange, Domino or Zimbra.
2.0 improves the product usability and strengthens the infrastructure capacities to meet big installations needs. Novelties :

2.0 benefited from customers feedback through big deployments and led to many optimizations. Single server installs can now handle thousands of users with limited tuning.

Native Java client remains the primary way to use the APIs.
