Tonido Release 2.50 Beta now available

The next major update for the Tonido platform is 3.0, but we are planning on releasing an intermediate update which will be Tonido 2.50.

Before a public release, we are releasing the beta version of 2.50 to the general public for feedback.  Please see end of the post for download links.
Please let us know of any issues in our forums. (

Major Changes:

Tonido Guests now can use the same Web UI as admins.

Guest login will use the same richer user interface as the admin user. However, guest users will only see the folders that are shared with them and they cannot browse and access anything else.


Much Faster Thumbnail Generation

Thumbnail image generation is more than 5x faster, this makes a huge difference on the TonidoPlug.

Control over Automatic WAN/LAN switch and Network Interface

More fine grained controls on these settings to disable Automatic WAN/LAN switch as well as the network interface to bind to.

    Just used Tonido Drive – version: 2.50.17950.

    I was hoping that the BSOD problem would not be part of this release but it is. However, I had a BSOD within 5 minutes and I had not even attempted to move files.

    I searched for log files on my hard drive and could see that BitKinex has generated a lot of files at, and around, the time of BSOD, and it is noted that I was not running BitKinex at the time, so this is very strange.
