We’ve update the NetSol Cloud with some major fixes. This release includes the following changes:
- Collaborative editing of documents
- User management interface fixes
- Performance improved significantly over older versions
- Overall file-handling is faster and more optimized
- Allow numeric group names
- Improved IE compatibiliy
- Sharing permission interface fixes
- Small visual fixes
- File scanner fixes to handle deleted files correctly
- User avatars
- Better file conflict handling
- File previews
The collaborative editing is an especially important development. The documents can be created from within the web-interface or existing documents can be uploaded. Sharing and editing can be done securely in the browser and be shared inside NetSol Cloud or via a public link. Users that have an account on the same server can be invited or public invitations can also be sent be email. The editing works on top of normal ODF files that are stored in NetSol Cloud. ODF documents are Open Document Format which can also be edited by programs such as OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, or Microsoft Word. This editing is done in real-time so your changes can be seen by the other party AS THEY HAPPEN.
We’ve also posted an update to the NetSol Cloud Sync Clients. You can find the new clients on our Sync Clients Page. Changes for the client program include:
