On a more technical topic, the James server is now scalable. It leverages the RabbitMQ/Cassandra technical blocks to achieve a full scale, zero downtime, email service on SMTP, IMAP, and JMAP protocols.
A welcome simplification of the way to search for people on the platform, both for developers and end users. The new people API handles searching for domain users, contacts, LDAP users and also groups. You can access to this API documentation, alongside the others, on (the dedicated page of the doc website)[http://docs.open-paas.org/apis/swagger/]. The OpenPaaS global search now uses this new API: no need to search both in Members and Contacts, now the lookup on both places !
