Welcome to the Release Notes for Nuxeo Drive 5.2.5

Status: Release



Restored Support for macOS 10.13

The support for macOS 10.13 was accidentally lost after the Nuxeo Drive 5.2.1 release. The application build process has been reviewed and the support for this version has been restored.

ca-bundle Option Ignored When No SSL Verification Done

Previously, the ca-bundle option was set to None or removed when the value of ssl-no-verify was changed at runtime. This behaviour was bad as it could cause errors and forced the user to manually set the option again when re-enabling the SSL verification.

To prevent this situation, the ca-bundle option is now ignored and never changed by the application when the ssl-no-verify option is set to True.

Added Proxy Settings Forwarding When Using OAuth 2

The proxy settings are now forwarded when using OAuth 2 authentication, allowing the application to fetch the OpenID URL, when given and when the user is behind a company proxy.

Direct Edit


Local Folder with UNC Names

Previously, the Direct Edit feature was not able to lock a document when the local folder was a UNC name. This was caused by the fact that UNC names do not support extended attributes and Direct Edit is heavily relying on them.

This issue has been fixed by using a temporary folder for Direct Edit when a UNC path is specified but it made document recovery in Direct Edit impossible.

Fix Behavior on Lock Document Configuration

In some case, the advanced configuration to never lock automatically a document in Direct Edit was ignored by the application and the document was locked even when told not to do so.

This issue has been fixed and the document won't be locked anymore when the option is set.

Handling of Synchronization Roots to Prevent Name Conflicts

In the case that a client use templates (automated folder structure), they may have many folders with the same name. Previously, as soon as one of those folders was synchronized, it became not possible to synchronize another one as it created conflicts.

Synchronization roots local folders names now includes the name of the remote parents folders, making them more unique and preventing conflicts errors. The option sync-root-max-level has been added to configure this new behaviour.
