Kollaborate Server 3.7 - new pricing, major architectural overhaul, trash, UI improvements and more

Kollaborate Server 3.7 is a major update to our self-hosted workflow platform with thousands of code changes, mainly on the backend, to modernize and improve reliability. It also contains many new features, bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements.

PHP 8.1 and MariaDB

This version updates PHP to version 8.1 and uses MariaDB instead of MySQL, both of which improve performance.


Deleting a file now moves it to the Trash, which can be accessed at the bottom of the screen.

Project admins can restore or empty the trash, otherwise those files will be removed automatically after 30 days.

User interface improvements

New controls for entering timecode and copying text.

Color and theme changes

Many optimizations to theming, including better support for light-colored interfaces. (You may need to rebuild your custom theme from the Tools section of the Admin Area for it to display correctly in this version.)

User administration

View stats for a user, such as the projects they are part of and how many files they have uploaded.

You can now suspend users, preventing them from using the site but keeping their files, comments, etc, intact.

Comment importing improvements

You can now map timecode, author and comment to specific columns within a CSV, as well as getting the author name from the file if the format supports it.

Comments can be imported and exported as TSV (Tab-Separated Values).

Require MFA

You can now require the user to have Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) activated before they can access a project. Edit a project to switch this option on.

There are many more changes and fixes; view the full list here.

Updated pricing

We've overhauled our pricing. Kollaborate Encoder is significantly cheaper and we've added new low-end packages with lower user counts to reduce the barrier to entry for smaller companies. (Existing customers are grandfathered into their old packages.)

At the current time of writing, we're offering a Black Friday Sale with 30% off all packages. This sale lasts through Cyber Monday (November 27th 2023).
