The new DolphinPro is officially released. Once again we've adopted a real dolphin and used its name as a codename for the new version - Scooter.
Scooter is one of the best releases we have ever made. Here is why...
- Scooter is the result of significantly transformed and much more focused development policy. Planned for the 1st of March, it is only 4 days overdue and that's considering that it has had two Beta and an RC release.
- Our recent push to adopt social coding is paying off. Scooter is the first Dolphin that's been developed in active collaboration with external developers. Thank you guys and gals for your contributions, reports and comments!
- This version also brings a lot more consistency. Thanks to extensive testing and community feedback 110 bugs have been fixed. A lot has been improved in general UI flow, privacy handling, settings accuracy, design and cross-platform/screen/browser performance.
In other words, it's a solid, well-tested update, with awesome new features and tune-ups.
Upgrade Patch from 7.2.1:
Upgrade Patch from 7.3.0.RC:
Chat+ Server v.0.20.0:
This is an official release. It is ready for production sites and is the current recommended stable package.
All sites running on Boonex subscriptions with hosting - Advanced+, Premium+ and Business+ are eligible for a version update service. Just contact us to authorise an update and we'll work with you to arrange the best time and discuss the details.
Note, that at this stage Chat+ requires dedicated server hosting. Therefore, we can only install it for Premium+ and Business+ accounts. The technology necessary for efficient operation on shared hosting is not ready yet and is under development by Rocket.Chat team. Meanwhile, the old chat will continue to work on Advanced+ accounts running v.7.3.
If you're on Advanced+ and absolutely need Chat+, please consider upgrading to Premium+ plan. Premium+ includes an independent dedicated server optimised for DolphinPro and Chat+.
Over the next few weeks we'll be updating documentation to offer more details on Chat+ and Dolphin Connect. We also plan to update Boonex site early next week.
Active work on v7.4 will commence in just 2 weeks and release is planned for 1st of July 2016.
