PowerFolder Version 16.3 erschienen

Das sportliche PowerFolder-Entwicklerteam hat pünktlich zu den Olympischen Spielen den 34. Sprint erfolgreich abgeschlossen und die Version 16.3 der bewährten Content Collaboration Platform (CCP) und File Sync & Share-Lösung (EFSS) veröffentlicht. Die neuerlichen knapp 30 Verbesserungen und Fixes für den PowerFolder Client und – Server sollen die Usability und die User Experience weiter erhöhen und helfen, den Workflow stetig zu verbessern.

Meerbusch, 27.07.2021 –  Das PowerFolder-Entwicklerteam hat auch den 34.Sprint – wie ein Arbeitsabschnitt zur  Implementierung neuer Produktfunktionalitäten auch genannt wird – erfolgreich absolviert und pünktlich die neue PowerFolder – Version 16.3 präsentiert. Die ist sowohl für den Client als auch für die Serverversion erschienen; die Mobile-Versionen von PowerFolder blieben dieses Mal dafür unangetastet. Die Hauptaugenmerke der Entwickler lagen bei der Version 16.3 unter anderem auf der in PowerFolder integrierten Nutzung Dokumentenbearbeitung, auf Verbesserungen beim Login und beim Umgang mit Foldern und auf den Überarbeitungen von Admin-Features.

So lädt die Dokumentenbearbeitung beispielsweise Serverseitig jetzt zuverlässig die aktuelle Version eines Dokuments statt sich am Cache zu bedienen, auch wird ab sofort deren neueste Version unterstützt. Admins können nun noch einfacher und zuverlässiger Accounts im Webend editieren, E-Mail-Templates anpassen, zudem wurde die Lesbarkeit der Logfiles weiter erhöht. Clientseitig wurde die unbeabsichtigte

Folder-Verdopplung bei einer Umbenennung während des Sync-Vorgangs gefixt und außerdem die standardmäßige Obergrenze der maximalen Speichernutzung von 1 auf 2 GB erhöht.

PowerFolder 14 SP10 released


PowerFolder 14 celebrates a round birthday, because now the PowerFolder development team has released version SP10 – again with numerous improvements and some bugfixes. Thus, the developers of the more than ten years proven Content Collaboration Platform (CCP) from Düsseldorf maintain their monthly number of strokes.

As already in the PowerFolder version 14.9 of October, the focus of the sprint was again on the administration and federation functions, but also the handling via the web interface was improved. For example, the web upload speed has been increased or previous file versions can now be restored on the web. And finally, Dashboard and Server combine the memory information of all memories in the web interface. Other improvements include a federation timeout problem when logging in, the addition of Accessibility and Cookies Policy tabs in the Web footer, the calculation of the amount of data in the quota bar, and the last login information in the user account. Also, if the account is not yet activated, an activation email will now be resent during password recovery.

Fixes also included minor problems with uploading large files to encrypted folders and uploading many folders and files at once, the “Upload Complete” message, sending email notifications from the upload form page, and invitations to LDAP accounts.


Version 14 also has a birthday!

Today, about a year ago, in November 2018, PowerFolder had fully completed the release jump from version 11 to version 14. One of the most important innovations at that time was the complete new development and redesign of the user interface (“Picasso”), which not only looks much more appealing and modern, but also brings a lot of new features and improvements – such as the r esponsive design, the multi-select- and the new “Picasso” user interface.Functionality for file operations or a new overview page for admins that provides all important information at a glance.

Integrated into version 14, D2D Connect is also a solution that enables reliable and secure synchronization of data between mobile devices. For example, employees of a company can securely exchange data at trade fairs, even if the network is overloaded – or information can be passed on by relief organizations in the event of a disaster or in areas without network coverage.

Other important new features of version 14 include the complete integration of PowerFolder into the operating system – and the resulting further increase in performance – as well as improvements in accessibility, document processing and drag & drop functionality.

Additional maintenance

Due to additional maintenance required to optimize the performance of our cloud, a small portion of our servers is currently unavailable to some users. We therefore ask for your patience and understanding – thank you very much!

Maintenance work on the cloud

In the course of the update to the now finished PowerFolder version 14.10 we are currently performing maintenance work on our cloud. Therefore it is from Thursday, the 14.11. to Friday, the 15.11. at times only limited or not attainable. We ask for your understanding.

PowerFolder 14.9.0 released

The PowerFolder development team has successfully completed the 18th Sprint; the Content Collaboration Platform (CCP), proven for more than ten years, has now reached version level 14.9.0. In addition to numerous small bug fixes, the focus this time was on improvements to some administration and federation functions.

The PowerFolder development team is gaining more and more momentum: The 18th Sprint – as a work section for implementing new product functionalities is also called – was the most productive in PowerFolder’s more than ten-year history; never before have improvements been implemented and bug fixes been ticked off.

Among other things, access to certain folders has been simplified in the administration functions, some federation functions have been optimized for operation in large scenarios, and trash can functions have been repaired.

In the “Bugfixes” section, minor problems and inconsistencies with special characters in subdirectories, downloading files larger than 2 GB, recovering multiple files simultaneously, and the password field on the upload page have been fixed.

PowerFolder has now reached the current version number 14.9.0.

Expansion of our infrastructure

Together with our service partner Hetzner-Online, we are planning to expand our infrastructure. Due to the associated work, the PowerFolder cloud will be partially unavailable from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on 10/15/2019. We ask for your understanding.
