  • Release Date: September 2019

  • Build Number: 14.7.2

  • Type: Drop-In


Upgrade Information

  • 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.

  • Log messages due to the higher schema version of database can be ignored:
