DOCman 2.1 is here!

It has been some time since we have released DOCman 2.0 stable, in between the 6 minor releases, we have been hard at work building a better DOCman based on the feedback we received.

And now it is here. We would like to introduce you to DOCman 2.1!

In this feature release, we focused on making files and documents easier to manage. To that end, we simplified access control, made files easier to find, added ability to easily move files and documents around.

And that’s not all, also included are two new frontend layouts for you to present your files and documents: a gallery and a much requested tree layout.

Let us summarize some of the biggest features in this new release.

Unlimited size uploads

Server limits on shared hosts have always been a problem for uploads, especially for big files. In DOCman 2.1 you can now upload files of unlimited size regardless of your server settings.

Simplified access control
