Sophora Runs Completely on Java 11
runs completely on Oracle JDK 11 and OpenJDK 11, and we no longer support versions 8 to 10. However, we benefit from the new possibilities offered by Java 11. Important note: besides Oracle Java, you can use free Java distributions, e.g. OpenJDK.
Users, Roles and Document Types are Sophora Documents
We have converted the document types as well as the users and roles into normal Sophora
documents. This gives these documents a version history. In addition, users and roles can be extended with their own fields, imported and exported, and provided with specific rights. With this conversion, we thus conclude our process of standardization. With this change, all entities in Sophora are now also Sophora documents. This will enable us to even better develop Sophora in the future.The important thing here is that you don't have to migrate the Sophora repositories. Sophora will automatically convert users, roles and document types for you when you upgrade to Sophora version 4.
+++ New in Previous Sophora Versions +++
New functions from previous Sophora Versions.
Structure Nodes and "Offers” are now Sophora Documents
We have improved the fundamentals of Sophora’s technical basis. The structure nodes (or "folders") and the offers no longer require special technical handling. The nodes are now completely "normal" Sophora documents. This standardizes and simplifies the Sophora Server in order to open up more possibilities for further development. In addition, structure nodes and offers now have a version history. Furthermore, they can be extended with their own fields, imported and exported, and provided with specific rights. The icons of the structure nodes have been changed and are now consistent with the status icons. More information can be found here. During the conversion, we made certain that our users do not have to migrate the Sophora repositories. When upgrading to Sophora Version 3, the conversion of structure nodes and offers is automatically performed in the background.
