FIBRES 2.21.1

We're super excited to bring several long-awaited improvements to boost collaboration in your FIBRES Account!





  • "Pinging" other users in Comments is finally available in FIBRES! Just type @ in the commenting box to trigger search for your fellow users
  • Introducing the Notification Center in your FIBRES navigation top bar. Here you'll receive notifications about updates to your followed content, invitations to and new links to your followed Collections (if the Collections feature set is active on your Account), and personal comment pings to you (see above). More notification options coming up later!
  • Possibility to export the Radar as a png image - simply zoom and filter the Radar as you wish, and then click the button on the bottom right corner for export.





  • Renewed user avatar (using initials) when there is no profile image

    • Improved layout of Discussion/Owner section

  • Performance issue with Discussion modal when there are a lot of change history entries
  • Multi-linking tool sometimes showing "No content found" even if there are many items available
  • Layout issue on "Hide filtered" / "Hide unselected" on the Radar and Network views

Degraded performance (resolved)





Support announcement

The performance of FIBRES platform has been restored to its normal level. Our team is still actively monitoring platform performance. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.

The problem was caused by temporary slowness in network connectivity between FIBRES app backend and our database cluster. We are already working on improvements on our application architecture to improve the performance of database operations overall, and to minimise the probability of degraded network performance between our application modules.

Degraded performance (investigating)

Support announcement

We are experiencing degraded performance on FIBRES platform at the moment. Our team is investigating the cause of problem.
