  • Release Date: Aug 2019
  • Build Number: 14.6.1
  • 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
  • (warning) 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:
    • [DatabaseMigrator]: Database layout version is newer than expected.
