Kollaborate 3.7 Beta 1 - major architectural overhaul, PHP 8.1 and MariaDB support, and more

Kollaborate Server 3.7 Beta 1 is now out. This version has a few new user-facing features but the biggest change is a signficant architectural overhaul. It has thousands of backend improvements and several key components have been rewritten. These changes improve reliability, customization and performance.

This version has been well tested and we're not aware of any issues, but we've given it a beta label due to the sheer number of changes that occurred.

We now support PHP 8.1 which provides performance improvements. The Docker images now use MariaDB instead of MySQL, which also improves database performance. Please note that the Docker image is configured to convert the database to your MariaDB version automatically. As such, we would recommend backing up the database before upgrading as you may be unable to downgrade otherwise.

On the feature side of things, link recipients can now view captions, while history can be filtered and exported to a CSV file from the History page for a project.

We've also made numerous small UI changes including new interface controls for interacting with timecode, copying links and displaying thumbnails.

Some deprecated features have now been removed from the site: namely the App Storage section and Python scripting.

Kollaborate is an essential cloud workflow platform that allows you to share files with clients and team members while integrating with Digital Rebellion apps and services. Kollaborate Server allows you to host the platform in-house on your own servers and storage.
