Support for Internet Explorer 11 will be discontinued
Microsoft announced that it will end support for Internet Explorer 11 in June 2022. DocuWare will therefore also no longer support Internet Explorer 11 as of version 7.6, based on our current planning, in April 2022. Please ensure that your customers are using an up-to-date browser when moving to DocuWare version 7.6. For all DocuWare Cloud customers, updates will start as usual shortly after the release of version 7.6.
“Connect to SharePoint” will be discontinued
Please note that the DocuWare module Connect to SharePoint will no longer be supported by DocuWare as of DocuWare version 7.6. The module will no longer be available to sell as of this date and can no longer be installed with DocuWare.
This also means that after updating to DocuWare version 7.6, existing installations of Connect to SharePoint will no longer work.
After updating to DocuWare version 7.6 or higher, a customer will no longer have to pay for maintenance and support for the removed modules. Please contact our orders team to have contracts modified accordingly. (Americas | EMEA)
DocuWare on-premises with mandatory HTTPS
The HTTPS transmission protocol has become the standard for secure communication with websites. HTTPS offers clear advantages over insecure communication via HTTP. The data exchange between client and server is not only encrypted, but also protected against manipulation.
Up to now, encryption via HTTPS was already available as an option in DocuWare on-premises. Starting with version 7.6, DocuWare will only support encrypted connections.
Please plan to configure encryption accordingly for your customers when moving to DocuWare version 7.6.
Existing installations without encryption can today already be switched to HTTPS. For the best way to do this, please refer to the following documentation (available in English only): How To: HTTPS.
Please note: DocuWare Cloud customers are not affected by this change. In DocuWare Cloud, all communication is already handled via encrypted connections.
