Release Notes for Turba 3 Alpha 1

The Horde Team is pleased to announce the first alpha release of the Turba Contact Manager H4 version 3.0.


Turba is the Horde contact management application. Leveraging the Horde framework to provide seamless integration with IMP and other Horde applications, it supports storing contacts in SQL, LDAP, Kolab, and IMSP address books.


IMPORTANT! This is a preview version that should not be used on production systems. This version is considered feature complete but there are likely to be bugs. You should not use this preview version with existing production data. Migration of data from earlier versions has not been fully tested yet and is not supported.

We encourage widespread testing and feedback via the mailing lists or our bug tracking system. Updated translations are very welcome, though some strings might still change before the release candidates are prepared.


To install Turba, you need to install Horde first. See https://github.com/horde/horde/blob/master/horde/docs/INSTALL for details. Once Horde is installed, you can install Turba with the following command:

pear install horde/turba-alpha

Then log in to Horde with your adminstrator account to configure the application and install the database schema from the configuration interface.


The major changes compared to the Turba 2.3 are:

  • Updated for Horde 4
  • Duplicates searching and merging
