Release date

  • Aug 2014


  • Connect Xf 3.16 is special in many ways.
  • Firstly, it is the first of the smaller releases to be launched. This follows the plan to release more frequently to ensure that the benefits of the product improvements are made available to the users as quickly as possible.
  • Secondly, Connect XF 3.16 improves on the already strong features related to the processing and storage of attachments. While the previous versions introduced and improved on SISA (Single Instance Storage of Attachments) to save on bandwidth and disk storage, the new attachment upload features helps enterprises secure them in a central location. Considering that the documents sent and received using the corporate email system could be very critical to the business of the enterprise.
  • Lastly, the security and usability of the system has been improved by providing the Forgot pass application, which can be used by end users to reset their own passwords, reducing the burden of the admin of dealing with all the requests for recovering from forgotten passwords.
