Kollaborate Server 3.6.1 - Copy direct links to comments, import markers from CSV and more

We've just released Kollaborate Server 3.6.1, a minor update to our self-hosted file sharing and workflow management system.

Server-Specific Changes

  • Hardened default security settings
  • The default installer password has been changed (only affects new installations)
  • Admin Dashboard - An encoding job is now considered unassigned if the server has been removed or is offline
  • Admin - Number of available encoding licenses is now shown on Servers page

Other Changes

  • Player - All admins can now remove original files / proxies, not just the file's owner
  • Comments - Right-click a comment and choose Copy Direct Link to copy a direct link to that comment. To send to someone outside the project, create a shared link as normal, then visit that link and copy the comment link from the player.
  • Comments - Markers can now be imported from a CSV file (Timecode, Author, Comment format)
  • Player - The maximum height of a vertical video is now dependent upon your screen size, to ensure it's always visible
  • Files - Even though it is valid for a URL to contain an exclamation mark, some email apps interpret it as punctuation and mangle pasted folder URLs. This has now been prevented.
  • Sharing - The default link name is now the title of the file
  • Tasks - Various fixes for importing tasks from a CSV file
  • Password Reset - Fixed an incompatibility with users with special characters in their email addresses
  • Sharing - Fixed an issue where share link connection could be lost when an error appears on the screen
  • Encoding Servers - Follow redirects when communicating with servers
  • Files - More robust support for getting a file's frame rate
  • Player - Ensured download info box is still visible on small size videos
  • Various small bug fixes, optimizations and code modernizations

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. To find out more, see the Kollaborate Server overview or register for the free cloud trial (Server trials are available on request).

Recent updates - January 2022

In case you missed it, here are some recent software updates for our products.

Kollaborate Server 3.6 - Jan 5 2022

Breaking Change: Kollaborate Server now supports directly sending emails via  a user-supplied SMTP server. This is now the recommended way of sending emails. If you configured email sending through the mailserver Docker container (which has now been removed), you will need to go to the Configure page in the Admin Area to set it up again.

Additionally, our Email Routing service is now deprecated and will shut down in March 2022. We recommend customers upgrade to 3.6 and switch to the new SMTP sending feature before this date. (We will be contacting affected customers separately with more details.)

Server-Specific Changes:

  • Direct SMTP email sending
  • The default workflows for new projects can be customized from the Admin Area
  • Admin Dashboard - Only calculate average encoding time for files from the last 24 hours
  • Admin Dashboard - Fixed an issue where clearing the render queue doesn't requeue jobs correctly
  • Admin Dashboard - Added the ability to clear failed encoding jobs only
  • Fixed an issue where errors wouldn't be shown when creating a new user from the Admin interface
  • Roles has been moved to the main navigation bar
  • You can now override the "From" name shown in emails from the Configure page (by default it is the site's name)

Other Changes:

  • Player - Show video codec and track information in the Metadata pane
  • Set language on a per-file basis (this can be done from the Edit Metadata page for the file)
  • Team - Shows a padlock icon next to a user if they have Multi-Factor Authentication enabled
  • Uploads - Show remaining upload count in page title
  • History - Show file move events on the History page
  • Share - Show the file upload link's description to users when uploading
  • Player - Added n / p shortcut keys to go to next / previous file
  • Fixed an issue causing potential conflicts with similar folder names
  • Files - Various page performance improvements when navigating and uploading files
  • Files - Fixed strange behavior when interacting with a file immediately after upload (e.g. favoriting or Quick Look)
  • Player - Disabled browser player download button on mobile
  • Files - Fixed page scrolling unnecessarily when dragging in files to upload
  • Player - Fixed an error when subscribing / unsubscribing to a file
  • Various minor fixes, code modernizations and refactorings

Digital Rebellion products are not vulnerable to the Log4j exploit

We've had some enquiries from customers about the Log4j vulnerability currently causing havoc across the internet. Log4j is a Java library and none of our products or backend processes use Java. Therefore, none of our products, including customers' self-hosted Kollaborate Server installations, are affected by this security flaw. (Self-hosted customers could still be vulnerable if they run other software on their servers that uses Log4j.)
