Mac Version 5.0

Version 5 release notes

A server upgrade will be required to support the new layout of subscriptions and viewing email attachments through the info panel.

Currently we do not support PostgreSQL 13.

New Features

  • New check-out monitor - The check out monitor has been completely re-written. Older style pop-ups have been replaced with a clear modern dashboard approach.

  • Awaiting First Check In list - New files added to the DocMoto sync area are now listed separately, providing the user with a simple to understand status of their working files.

  • Improved handling of files in the Awaiting First Check List - DocMoto now analyses the monitored folder.

    Any files which have not been modified within the last 21 days, are writable and already in DocMoto are moved to a folder on the user's desktop called DocMoto Cleaned Files.

    The number of days and location can be changed using the following command line instructions.

    defaults write com.docmoto.MacClient cleanOrphansAgeDays 90


    defaults write com.docmoto.MacClient.cleanOrphansFolder "$DOCUMENTS/My Old DocMoto files".

    The folder may be an absolute path, or begin with $DESKTOP, $DOCUMENTS or $HOME. Click here to read more about DocMoto Cleaned Files.

  • One-click viewing for Email attachments - Email attachments are now listed in the info panel, and can be viewed with a simple click.

    Attachments can be viewed without unpacking an email.

  • Universal Link type - The new universal link type is http based, so will work within any third party application.

    Older style x-docmoto links are still supported.
