Release date: April 26, 2021
This new version of DRACOON for Outlook is usable only for users who already use the latest DRACOON release DRACOON Server (DRACOON Core version 4.26).
Users of the DRACOON release LTS-2019-1 (DRACOON Core version 4.12) must continue to use the previous version 5.5.5 of DRACOON for Outlook until updating to DRACOON Server.
About this release
Version 5.12.1 is the initial release of DRACOON for Outlook for DRACOON Server.
Version 5.12.1 of DRACOON for Outlook now informs the user about active password policies when setting a password and includes some bug fixes.
- Support for the updated client-side encryption of DRACOON Server (use of keys of length 4096 bit instead of 2048 bit): Version 5.12.1 of DRACOON for Outlook now supports 4096-bit keys for the client-side encryption, which ensures secure encryption for the long term. However, DRACOON for Outlook version 5.12.1 continues to support the previously used 2048 bit file keys—the recognition of the used key length is done automatically and requires no intervention by end-users or administrators.
- Italian language support: If Italian is set as user interface language in Outlook, DRACOON for Outlook is now automatically displayed in Italian.
- The names for Download shares and Upload shares have been adapted to the corresponding new names from the new DRACOON Web App:
- Download shares are now called just Shares.
- Upload shares are now called File requests, so the corresponding command in DRACOON for Outlook is now called Request files.
- The individual settings for shares and file requests now have the same names as in the new DRACOON Web App.
- For data rooms, the same icon is now used as in the other DRACOON clients (folder icon with DRACOON logo).
- In the overview of existing shares/file requests, the respective icon is now displayed for shared data rooms and folders so that the user can recognize whether the share/file request refers to a data room or folder.
- Version 5.12.1 of DRACOON for Outlook fixes problems that could occur in previous versions. For example, if the user deleted his decryption password in the DRACOON Web App, DRACOON for Outlook didn't recognize it.
A complete list of bug fixes can be found in the technical release notes (see below).
