Upgrading a test server running Debian8x64 with Seafile CE 5.1.2 to 5.1.4 worked fine but new Seafile version is still listing still 5.1.2. even though seafile-server-latest is pointing to the new version:

Any ideas?

When is the Windows Server version planned to come?

Sorry, we don’t have a plan to release Windows server 5.1.4.

Will develop seafile version for windows in the future? seafile 6.0?

The Windows version will be maintained. But we only release one for a major version or for a security fix version.

Forgot to restart the server… :grimacing:
