Description Don Pellegrino 2017-10-19 14:14:18 UTC
Description of problem:

It seems that Evolution has made a number of useful improvements to the interoperability with Microsoft Exchange since release 3.22.x. A version bump to the latest release series of Evolution would be useful.

For example:

If this is not super critical request I would like aks to consider postponing to 7.6

Comment 3 Don Pellegrino 2017-10-19 14:29:12 UTC
Aligning the update with a point release of RHEL seems to make sense. I would not rate any of the corresponding issues with Evolution 3.22.x as critical.

Comment 4 Milan Crha 2017-10-19 15:01:26 UTC
Thanks for a bug report. Please note that this means to bring also evolution-data-server (eds), evolution-ews and evolution-mapi. While there is not much issue with the two later, the eds is a problem, because it's a critical core part of the desktop, due to multiple other applications than just evolution connecting to its services, including GNOME Shell itself (the gnome-shell-calendar-server, which shows events in the clock popup). That means that an update of Evolution may eventually require update of other packages as well.
