Filelocker v2.2 Release

Version 2.2 brings many new features and bug fixes to Filelocker. In addition to subtle UI enhancements and fixes (such as log rotation), we've added three new core functionalities: download statistics, a command line interface, and geolocation.

Filelocker users can now view an HTML5-based chart (or just a table if HTML5 canvas is unsupported) of a file's downloads over a specified time period. We're still ironing out some of the bugs with rendering these charts in IE. In the future, we will include more detailed auditing and charting for admins.... read more

V2.2 Release Next Week

We had originally intended to release version 2.2 today (Friday), but we wanted to test the log rotation for a couple more days before we put the stamp of approval on things. This new version will include a commandline client to allow unix based servers to script uploads and shares to Filelocker. The commandline client relies on a config file that is generated from the web front end of Filelocker which contains a secret key used for authentication. A unique IP address is tied to each secret key. Further details will be included in the release notes.

Filelocker 2 v1.1 Release

Right on the heels of the v1.0 release we have the first patched release of Filelocker 2. This release includes a host of small bug fixes, and some notes in the INSTALL.txt on setting up ProxyPass in Apache to work with Filelocker. It is recommended that be run again for this release to re-initialize the database if possible, as a new table has been added. If you're already up and running with users and don't want to blank your database, simply drop in the MySQL table create statement uploaded in the files section as 2.1.1-patch.sql

Filelocker 2 v1.0 Release

For all Filelocker 2 users, we've uploaded our latest stable version and have set it as the 1.0 revision. If you are running older, non-versioned instances, I strongly encourage you to download the latest package and unzip it over your old install. You won't need to run again, you'll just have to backup your filelocker.conf file if it's in the same directory as the install. Going forward, I'll try to do better with the versioning (and if someone wants to write a web based updater, like WordPress has, I'd love to hear from you).

Filelocker 2 Now Available

We are happy to announce that Filelocker 2 has been made available for download. Currently, the tested configurations we've been running use CAS for authentication and user information is pulled from an LDAP directory. Both the authentication and the directory portion can be run out of the local database as well for testing and smaller deployments.
