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.
