Pydio Cells & Enterprise 4.3.2

Created on 2023/12/23
Release Type: 

This release ships new interesting features, an important upgrade of Cells Flows User Interface, bugfixes and more.
Note that several GO and JS dependencies where updated to include latest security updates.


Serve static sites via Public Link

The webDAV feature introduced in version 4.3 for Public Links (like /public/{link-hash}/dav/) is now even more powerful: we introduce DirectoryListing and DirectoryIndexes feature, similar to Apache or other web servers, for serving a listing or any custom HTML file when browsing a folder. This gives the ability to fully serve an independent static html site, where relative resources (images, css) are loaded with correct content-type from the public link folder.

Note that script execution is fully disabled (using Content-Security-Policy) as this is served on the same domain.

Environment Variables Documentation

All ENV variables that are not bound to command flags are now properly documented in the command line tool.

Below is an extract from ./cells start --help:

  4. Other environment variables (development or advanced fine-tuning)

  - CELLS_DAV_MULTIPART_SIZE (20): Default part size used to automatically chunk DAV uploads, in MB
  - CELLS_DEFAULT_DS_STRUCT (false): Create default datasources using structured format instead of flat
  - CELLS_ENABLE_FORMS_DEVEL (false): Display a basic UX form with all possible fields types in the UX (for React developers)
  - CELLS_ENABLE_LIVEKIT (false): Enable experimental support for video calls in the chat window, using a livekit-server.
  - CELLS_ENABLE_SIMDMD5 (false): Empty is false by default, if set this will switch the md5 hasher to simd implementation
  - CELLS_ENABLE_WIP_LANGUAGES (def): Display partially translated languages in the UX language picker.
  - CELLS_JOBS_LOG_LEVEL (info): Log level used for scheduler jobs - to be used carefully as it may produce a large volume of logs.
