Please read the complete Release Notes before upgrading.
Please follow the regular upgrade documentation for Windows or Linux
Upgrading any previous version is possible. It is recommended to update from version 11.8, if you are still using the 11.x series.
New configuration parameters: server.federation.sharing_enabled
If you face the error message java.lang.IllegalStateException: Problem reading database configuration. org.hibernate.HibernateException: Dialect class not found: de.dal33t.powerfolder.A.L.C.B in the logs, please stop thee service, remove the line hibernate.dialect=de.dal33t.powerfolder.A.L.C.B from your Server Configuration File and start the service again.
Cluster: Running different versions on the servers in the cluster is supported but limited to version >= 14.3.5
Important: If you are on Linux, one additional step is necessary, which is not mentioned in the upgrade article from the Wiki. Please delete the existing /jre32 or /jre64 sub-directory in the installation directory before unpacking the new contents from the .tar.gz there as we ship a new different JRE now. Furthermore this version will be the last one supporting 32-bit OS for PowerFolder Server.
Downgrade information (optional)
In case a downgrade to a previous version is necessary:
For a downgrade you have to review our downgrade documentation since version 14.2 is not downgrade compatible by default.
Simply replace the PowerFolder-Server.jar file with that from the previous version you would like to run.
Please keep in mind to insert your old branding.
