New community release improves file handling and collaboration across clouds
Lexington, MA – February 9, 2015 – The 玩嘉电竞下载注册 community, developing the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software, today released 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0, speeding up sharing and collaboration in the cloud while maintaining control for data owners.
玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0 elevates Federated Cloud sharing to the next level—allowing users to share files with other 玩嘉电竞下载注册 servers—and introduces additional notifications and user interface improvements to the sharing process. 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0 also introduces support for favorites and improved search functionality, enabling users to quickly and easily access important files without excessive navigation.
玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0 gives enthusiasts and technical users a free, secure and innovative way to sync and share data from the storage of their choice. With more than 2 million users worldwide, 玩嘉电竞下载注册 installs easily on a web server, enabling anyone to host their own file sync and share software while using their own storage (and/or cloud storage if they choose), instead of relying on third parties with files stored outside of their control.
玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0 features include:
With 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0, the process for setting up server-to-server shared folders is now as easy as sharing a file with another 玩嘉电竞下载注册 user. This allows federated instances of 玩嘉电竞下载注册 to work together across servers, and if desired, across organizations to collaborate and get work done while control is maintained at the local 玩嘉电竞下载注册 deployment.
Federated Cloud Sharing has been recently celebrated in the announcement of OpenCloudMesh , a joint international initiative under the umbrella of the GÉANT Association, which is built on 玩嘉电竞下载注册’s open Federated Cloud sharing application programming interface (API). OpenCloudMesh enables collaboration beyond the borders of individual clouds to create a globally interconnected mesh of research clouds — without sacrificing any advantages in privacy, control and security an on-premises cloud provides.
Favorites and Metadata Support
With ten thousand or more files found on a typical file sync and share account, users can now assign a favorite icon to files and folders and quickly locate, access and edit important content. Server favorites set a foundation for additional file and folder metadata in future releases of 玩嘉电竞下载注册 yet remain on-premise for greater privacy and data security.
Optimized Search Interface
An updated search UI provides a simpler and easier user experience including enhanced result set reporting which speeds access to searched files. Additional search parameters, as well as general usability improvements, make it easier for users to find the files they need fast.
Additional enhancements in this release include web interface enhancements on both the user and admin interface. 玩嘉电竞下载注册 has provided faster access to data and applications with simplified app installation and configuration to LDAP/AD improvements and sophisticated, yet simple, user management tools. Improvements to Documents and the provisioning API further ensure that users can collaborate across systems and files. The provisioning API, that had been limited to the Enterprise Edition, is now available to the community as an open source app, providing the same system administration benefits to the overall 玩嘉电竞下载注册 community.
Developers now have the ability to specify dependencies in info.xml, ensuring that the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 app container can automatically resolve stated dependencies. For those just starting to develop with 玩嘉电竞下载注册, a new app tutorial and demo app will provide a proper foundation to build against the extensible 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0 platform.
玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server 8.0 is now available for download. Further details about the features in this release can be found on http://owncloud.org/eight .
