We are proud to announce that Seafile 6.1 has been released. Version 6.1 added two online office suite integration, Collabora and OnlyOffice to the community edition. You can find detailed changes below.
Online office suite integration
Collabora Online and OnlyOffice are now supported in community edition. You can create new office files in the web interface and edit them with one of the office suite.
Web UI Improvement
Several UI improvement are added in this version. The most wanted improvement is using a large thumbnail (1024px) when view an image online, instead of using the original image.
Most photos taken by phones are of size 2MB to 4MB. A thumbnail of such image is of size 200KB to 400KB. Thus the speed of loading such photos is increased. This photo orientation issue is also solved.
The UI for viewing photos is also improved:
Other UI improvements include:
Add thumbnail for videos
Enable drag and drop files to sub-folders
PDF preview is improved for HiDPI screen
Folder upload is supported in community edition
Improvement for administation
In previous versions, when a file is accidentally modified or deleted, it is hard to find the client to blame. This version added a column in file in history page to show which client modified a file.
Admin can set user’s quote, delete users in bulk
Support using admin panel in mobile platform
Add translation for settings page
From this version, the Wiki module is hidden by default. Users will not be able to turn it on. From our feedback, this feature is not used by most users. For compatibility with old version, you can turn it on by adding the following line to seahub_settings.py:
ENABLE_WIKI = True
Upgrade Django to 1.8.18
Clean Ajax API
Increase share link token length to 20 characters
Note for upgrade
If you upgrade from 6.0, you need to install ffmpeg package to let the video thumbnail work correctly:

Well, I would love to use it if it were a Wiki. As far as I experienced Seafile-Wiki is only a folder containing markdown files (which you can set up in any library - no need for a Wiki feature).
If there would be the possibility to set up a at least something that supports pages with sub pages the Seafile wiki concept would be compareable to a real Wiki.
I am looking forward for testing the office solution. Keep up the good work!
upgraded from 6.0.2 on ubuntu. I am getting always
An unhandled exception was thrown by the application.”
only suspicious error is in controller.log: [05/14/17 10:38:07] seafile-controller.c(528): seafdav not enabled.
no errors in the logs directory whatsoever. nginx runs fine. apt-update and upgrade was done. hmmm.
EDIT: made a new topic: 6.1 beta "Unhandled Exception"
