This document details issues in previous versions of Zetafax that have been addressed in this release of Zetafax.  It also details the new features added in this release.

Issues fixed in this release

Zetafax Server

  1. When using the Zetafax Server Monitor 'Fax Report.' menu option in Zetafax 9.1, some users experienced an application crash.  If the Zetafax 2006 server CD install fails to rectify this issue on your system, Equisys recommends that you download the additional patch from the Update Service which resolves further known issues on selected operating systems.
  2. An upgrade installation of the Zetafax Server failed to copy over new Zetafax Client .CAB files.
  3. Faxes sent through E-Mail Gateway have '???' in the subject line.
  4. Zetafax API sample code was out of date.

Zetafax Client

  1. Zetafax Client addressing dialog fails to appear when printing to the Zetafax Printer.
  2. When printing to the Zetafax Printer users receive a message saying "" You must run the zetafax client program (ZETAFAX.EXE) to address the fax" , even though the Zetafax Client starts automatically in the background.
  3. When searching the Zetafax address book, through the Zetafax Client, the search yields missing, corrupt or unreadable entries.
  4. Faxes forwarded to a Zetafax user are automatically printed.
  5. The Zetafax Client takes a long time to start up if there are large numbers of faxes in the Inbox or Outbox.
  6. GoldMine logon dialog does not display 'remembered' details.

Features included in this release
