Actually, looking at the Horde homepage, it's not clear to me what was upgraded. there seem to be a lot of "horde"-named packages, and the releases announcements page for 2008 doesn't distinguish between them very clearly.

I'm assuming that you followed the upgrade_horde instructions -- is that correct? Did you use the the scripts we have available? i see no changes to the download script to refer to rc3, for example. I also don't see anything in those scripts that verifies the checksums of the files -- shouldn't they be updated and checked from the release announcements?

Here's the horde 1.1-rc3 release announcement.

Hmm. I'm installing the Groupware Webmail Edition, but maybe I should be. I'm not sure what the difference is between installing the Horde Groupware Webmail Edition version downloading the individual packages. Maybe I'm creating more work - and installing the full package would be easier and more stable.

I agree it's not clear - they seem to be both providing a separately packaged programs (which seems like a good idea to me) and one monolithic release (which doesn't make as much sense).

Thanks for the push dkg - I did follow the upgrade_horde instructions and noticed a few mistakes in the scripts and the how to. These have now been fixed and committed.

I can't seem to find published checksums of the individual packages :(.

The release announcement for groupware webmail edition (also linked above) has MD5 sums at the bottom of it. Other release announcements from the same mailing list seem to follow the same format. MD5 isn't the strongest hash in the world, but it beats not verifying the packages at all.

Ideally, the packages would have detached signatures offered by the horde release managers, of course :/
