Announcing Tonido Release 2.50

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

Important notes before upgrading:

– Your TonidoPlug: Make sure photos and openid applications are deleted
– Your Tonido on MacOSX: To upgrade, please download and install new app from our downloads. You cannot do usual Tonido in-app upgrade.

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.

    I’m a big Tonido-fan, but this release is not made for me. Deleting the sync-function is the worst decision. And not for tell, that I have to uninstall two apps on my plug before updating (otherwise my plug won’t start again) isn’t a good idea.

    Just to clarify the comment below, only the Workspace Sync function was removed, not Tonido File Sync.

    Hi madhan,

    sorry for my inaccurate comment., You’re right, but I’m missing the Workspace Sync very much.

  4. madhan says:

    I agree with you it was a wonderful function. We used it everyday at our home.
    understood, but the P2P sync was making life difficult for our developers and only a few users even used this function.

    I’m still waiting on mkv playback 🙁

    Wow! “Much Faster Thumbnail Generation” is an understatement. It mostly kept up when I viewed a bunch of new photos in Gallery on my old plug. Great enhancement! Thanks.
