It has been exactly one month since the release of Razuna 1.5. The response to Razuna 1.5 has been overwhelming and exceeded our expectations. But instead of taking a break, the team went ahead and continued to add, enhance features and tirelessly listened to the community. Today, we are happy to announce Razuna 1.5.1.
Razuna 1.5.1 was planned to be a maintenance release to Razuna 1.5, but as it turned out we did not wanted to hold back with some of the new stuff we’ve build in the meantime. Thus, this release introduces a redesigned entry page (with a convenient upload button), a updated folder view and most prominently a redesigned file detail view where all relevant information can be found in one place (place have a look at our blog post outlining this in more details). Since we are speaking of design and usability, users can now select your files with the mouse/keyboard in the folder view, the mobile side has been completely redesigned and with this release users of the self-hosted edition can use the recently released Razuna Google Chrome Extensions.
Furthermore, we have changed the permissions for “read-only” slightly. This means that “read-only” groups are not able to download the original file anymore, except one sets it to download in the shared options. On the sharing section we now propagate changes from the folder settings to all sub-folders and done some more tweaking to how sharing works.
Razuna 1.5 introduced a new caching engine. Naturally, sometimes the caching was done too much or wasn’t refreshed properly. Razuna 1.5.1 fixes this in many parts. Moreover, the API2 is now also using the same caching and thus developers should not see a “delay” anymore in their results from the API.
Last but not least, we have had some issues with connecting to FTP servers. In short, the engine wasn’t able to deal with some FTP servers and especially with folder & files that contained spaces or any foreign characters. This release, contains the latest update to the engine which resolves this issue. If you are interest, the Razuna 1.5.1 release notes are happy to welcome you.
While we are sure you enjoy this release we wanted to let you know that this release also builds on the new Razuna Plugin API that enables developers to build their own plugins for Razuna. Furthermore, we will soon release the all new Workflow plugin. More information about the Razuna Plugin API and the Workflow will be revealed soon.
