    Acronis Access 7.0.0 (Released: November 11th, 2014)
    —————————————-

    Enhancements

    • Acronis Access is now named Acronis Access Advanced and is the upgrade path for existing users of Acronis Access 6 or earlier. A new version tailored for small/medium businesses with simpler requirements has been also introduced. This new version is named Acronis Access.
    • Redesigned and enhanced Access web client user interface
    • During new installations, the configuration wizard now attempts to detect and system configuration options, such as SMTP server and Active Directory (LDAP) server.
    • During installation, Acronis Access and Acronis Access Advanced can now be configured to operate using a single open port for client connections. In this configuration, all Access clients (mobile app, desktop sync client, web client interface) use the same network address and port to connect to the Access server.

    • Redesigned notification and invitation email templates
    • The Users administration page and Devices administration page are now unified into a single admin console page.
    • Access now provides conflict resolution for Sync & Share files and folders. If users’ file modifications overlap and cause conflicts, the conflicting files will be renamed with the users name and the current date, so that the conflicting file is obvious and can be handled as needed. Previous to Access 7.0, these conflicting files would have been saved as new versions.
    • Sync & Share files can now be copied between Sync & Share folders using the web client interface.
    • Sync & Share file download links can be now be generated and copied for use, without requiring an email to be sent by the Access server. The file download links feature can be enabled or disabled.

    • OpenSSL version 1.0.1i is used in this release.

    Notes and Known Issues

    • Upgrades from mobilEcho 4.5 or earlier are not supported in the initial version of the Acronis Access 7.0. Support for upgrades from mobilEcho 4.5 or earlier are anticipated to return in a followup release.
    • Internet Explorer 8 is not supported in the initial version of the Acronis Access 7.0 Web client. IE8 users will not be able to log into the Acronis Access Web client. Support for IE8 is anticipated to return in a followup release, though in this followup release IE8 users will be presented with the previous Access 6 web UI and will not be able to use the new Access 7 features. If you have end-users running Internet Explorer 8, please consider upgrading to a more secure browser or waiting until support is added in the upcoming Access Server update.
    • Windows XP users will not be able to use the Acronis Desktop Sync Client or Web Client after an Access Server is upgraded to 7.0 or later. This is due to an incompatibility of XP and IE8 with the secure SSL bindings the Access Server now uses. Administrators can change the SSL bindings to support XP users. Details here: Please note that changing these ciphers might expose your server to vulnerabilities and is generally unsecure.
    • Windows Server 2003 is no longer supported.
    • ‘Mobile Access’ Network Home Folders configured for users on Access Server are not displayed in Web client interface. This will be supported in a followup release.
    • If user select several files for upload they will be uploaded one after the other, not simultaneously.
    • SharePoint check-in / check-out is not yet supported in the web client interface. This will be supported in a followup release.
