Version 3.5 of Communote server. Please check our documentation for installation and update instructions.
In case you are already using Communote and have additional Communote plugins installed you should ask the creators of the plugins whether they are still compatible with the new version. Alternatively, you can test them yourself against the new Communote version on a test environment before updating your production environment.

Release notes

  • Internet Explorer versions less than 11 are not supported anymore.
  • Support for Tomcat 8.5 (#34). Tomcat 8.5.37 is bundled in the installation packages. Since Tomcat 8.0 reached its EOL, we recommend an upgrade.
  • Compatibility with PostgreSQL versions 9.5 and 9.6 (see requirements)
  • Upload of attachments has been improved (#53). It is now possible to select several files at once, use drag and drop to attach files and paste image data from the clipboard directly into the editor.

  • Microsoft Stream videos will be embedded if a link to such a video is contained in a note (#65).
