Kollaborate Server 3.6 is out now - a major update to our self-hosted workflow platform.
Kollaborate Server can now send emails directly using a user-supplied SMTP server, which is much more user-friendly than the old system utilizing Postfix. If you were using Postfix with a previous version, you will need to add your SMTP server information in the Configure page of the Admin Area to resume sending emails with version 3.6.
Your email provider will be able to supply information about connecting to their SMTP servers, or alternatively you can use Gmail or Amazon SES. Note that if you have two-factor authentication switched on with your email provider, you will likely need to set up an App-Specific Password for Kollaborate Server; your provider will be able to provide more details on this if it is necessary.
This is now our recommended way of sending emails from Kollaborate Server so we are also deprecating the Email Routing subscription service. This service will shut down in March 2022 (the exact date depends on your billing renewal date) and we have contacted affected customers about this directly. To avoid disruption, customers should upgrade to 3.6 and setup their SMTP information before the shutdown date.
The default workflows added automatically when creating a new project can now be customized from the Admin Area. Setup rules for automatically color coding files or complex approval chains that will be applied when the project is created.
(It should be noted that actions requiring specific files (such as adding a watermark image) cannot be set in default workflows as those files won't exist in new projects.)
The Metadata tab in the player now shows information about the video codec of the original file and the audio track configuration. This information will not show for older files but will be gathered for all files uploaded from now on.
The audio language setting is used to determine which caption language to show by default. Previously this could only be set on a project-wide basis but now can be overriden for specific files. This can be done from the Edit Metadata page.
