In addition, the new release of Open-Xchange enhances the user interface with design and usability improvements, and provides new features including, calendar subscription for the Google calendar, optimised calendar invitation and confirmation, and usability improvements of calendar, tasks and permissions.

Enhancements to the user interface and the addition of Google Calendar integration provide users with a very competitive open-source alternative.
