Web File Share - New Release


Version: 2016.11.07

New features:

  • The user interface is now mobile-friendly. The control panel can also be accessed from mobile devices.

  • A new folder listing view mode has been added, optimized for browsing folders with image files.

  • A "Photos" special folder has been added, showing image files found in your home folder.

  • Office files can be now opened directly in the desktop Microsoft Office 2013+ apps, no prior download action required.

  • Added support for Markdown (".md") files with preview and syntax highlighting for editing.

  • Added Markdown support to file comments.

  • Weblinked folders can be opened as list view. This is ideal for large folders with files with longer names.

  • Pasting screenshots and other images from clipboard now works also with Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox (version 50).

  • Firefox users can upload files by copy/paste from the computer to the browser. Still waiting for other browsers to support this.

Improvements:

  • Many aesthetic and performance improvements.

  • Thumbnails are now being loaded only when scrolled into view from the folder listing. This saves server bandwidth, storage space and CPU, and improves considerably the user experience.

  • Shortening a web link now shortens the link with the currently selected view mode, so one can send, for example, a short link to an image gallery.

  • Added button for copying the weblink to clipboard.

  • Web link galleries: photos are sorted by "Date taken", newer photos showing at the top.

  • Justified the images in the web link galleries, Flicker-style. Added captions on mouse over. Also improved responsiveness.

  • Added support for URL shorteners other than Google.

  • Music album covers are shown now as thumbnails also for M4A audio files.

  • Added user avatar on the OAuth2 consent page.

  • Added "Login page background" option under "Interface Options" system configuration section for setting either a background image or color. This applies to password protected web links as well.

  • Added "Help URL" option under "Interface Options" system configuration section. If set, the user interface will show a question mark iconed button on the top menu, next to the users profile button, which will open the URL in a popup window.

  • The API method "/api.php/files/browse/" can now receive the parameter "details[uuid]" for providing unique ids (UUID V5) for files and folders. This can be used for client-side caching or file synchronization procedures.

  • Added "singleDownload" parameter when creating weblinks via the API. A temporary, one download, link is being created, without affecting the web link the user might have previously created on the file/folder.

  • Added API method for fetching file metadata.

  • Added support for extracting the image size for GIF files.

  • Removed two clicks from the file commenting process.

Fixes:

  • Fixed moderate file access vulnerability.

  • Fixed minor SQL injection vulnerability.

  • Fixed adding the admin user to the "Can see and exchange files with:" list when editing or adding roles.

  • Fixed LDAP authentication issue brought by the previous update.

  • Added orientation detection when generating image thumbnails with GD. It is still highly recommended to enable and use ImageMagick instead.

  • Fixed the Autodesk plugin which stopped working due to an API change.

  • Fixed home folder path which was getting altered when editing users with roles with home folder template paths.

  • Fixed importing "Date taken" info from some non-standard Exif headers.

  • Fixed possible problem when importing invalid IPTC data.

  • Added web.config for IIS servers preventing downloads of WOFF font files.

  • Use less memory for parsing video files for metadata to avoid hitting PHP limits.

  • Fixed potential MySQL error when moving files/folders that are being accessed at the same time.

  • Fixed "Change account" from the OAuth2 consent screen, and it now actually logs the user out.

  • Removed drag highlight after the user interrupted a drag&drop action.

  • Fixed redirect to login page when accessing the control panel without a valid authentication session.

  • Searching inside the home folder no longer shows items from the trash folder.

  • Added OAuth2 workaround for servers running PHP as an Apache module and the Authorization header is missing.

  • Fixed layout issue with Enterprise version when user space quota is set.
