Cells 2.0 is a major milestone release, bringing new features, better performances and more stability.
The vision we had when rewriting Pydio PHP in GO is finally fulfilled : we are proud to ship CellsSync, a new synchronization client written in 100% GO. CellsSync is sharing most of its code with the Cells server, and most noticeably its internal sync library is the same that is used inside Cells data sources for syncing objects service to indexes.
Please note that this tool is not yet in v1 (0.9.1) as we need more feedback from the community before tagging it as stable.
Our existing OpenID Connect layer has be extended to provide endless SSO possibilities. It is now easy to use Cells as an Identity Provider for any third-party service that is OAuth2 or OIDC compatible. Talking to our REST API has never been easier.
In Cells Enterprise, Cells can be also connected to any external OIDC or SAML identity providers.
Many other improvements
DevOps will love Cells 2.0
Listening to your continuous feedback, we took the time to polish our builds and deployments channel to make sure they meet the standards of a modern cloud architecture. We also took good care of our docs, from the admin guide to the REST APIs and the command line tools documentations.
Of course, during the course of the development cycle, we have fixed many issues and brought small improvements here and there. See the Changelog for more info!
Cells binaries are now available for Windows servers. Tested on Windows Server 2012 and Windows 10.
Migration Tool from Pydio 8
Import existing data (files, workspaces, ACLs, shares...) from a Pydio 8 installation into a brand new Cells installation! All P8 features are not supported but should be good enough for most usecases.
