Packaging / configuration

  • Disabled diagnosticDataCollectionEnabled in MongoDB - this was one of the causes for reducing the available write space for MongoDB used by bbb-html5. See #11185 for more info. Possibly there might be more changes in the near future, so we are keeping the issue open.

In /usr/share/meteor/bundle/mongo-ramdisk.conf

  diagnosticDataCollectionEnabled: false
  • note that exporting Shared notes to PDF, ODF or Microsoft Word is still disabled by default. Some more work is needed ot ensure it works well before enabling it in [next] beta
  • changes to packaging in bbb-libreoffice-docker to properly clear any old bbb-soffice docker image
