Server 3.1.0-rc3 released / Bluecherry mobile app testing


This release fixes two reported crashes.  Additionally this release adds support for creating a (free!) bluecherry.app domain and will generate Let's Encrypt SSL for you.  The subdomain / Let's Encrypt process takes approximately 60 seconds to complete.

Watch our short YouTube video for information on this using this new feature.

Once you generate a Let's Encrypt SSL you can test out our Bluecherry App!  Join us on Slack for a free invite on TestFlight (iOS) or our Android app.

Note - A Bluecherry perpetual license is required to use this feature, it is not avoid in the community edition.
