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.

Server 2.8.9 released

  • Fix: Nasty storage deletion routine bug where old videos may not be deleted, resulting in 100% disk usage and failure to components (#433)
  • Feature: Implement new announcement / changelog system (#445)

This release focuses on tracking orphan video / image files that are left over on the server taking up unnecessary space.  When running 2.8.9 you may see the following in the bluecherry logs:

bc-server[21782]: I(): Initial media cleanup finished: removed(2122), archived(0), errors(23), others(0)

 If you see an error in the log file it is safe to ignore this.

Note:  This will be the last 2.8.9 server release.  We will be releasing 3.1.0 release candidates starting May 24, 2021.  

Customers that have an existing version 2 license can contact Bluecherry for a coupon code to upgrade to version 3 for 50% off.
