    who say that it`s in production.

    But… good for migration, I think

    What has happen to your developers? They have got some kind lazy -pills? Otherwise it is very hard to understand that why there are no compatibility for old server version.

    It should not be rocket science to add clients a check the server version and behaves like that.

    Hope you are not planning to share the pills with Office and Outlook teams!
