Video files preview

Whenever possible, video files will now be shown inside the Preview pane, regardless of their size. Before this improvement, we only allowed the internal player to show videos of a limited size, which - alas - also meant limited functionality.

Fix document sharing issue

It looks like the time limit imposed on shared documents from Yarkon was cutting it too short, making the Share function pretty useless. With the release of version 3.4.0, it is now fixed and once again, pretty useful.

Fix downloads for very large files

The timeout we set for download was not taking into account very large files (or very slow networks) when downloaded individually. Release 3.3.2 includes a patch that fixes this oversight and ensures that such downloads would not fail.

More file types in preview

With release 3.3.0, Yarkon will now show more files in the preview pane.

In addition to images, which were available for preview with previous versions of Yarkon, we now support PDF documents, videos, text files and even code syntax highlighting when possible. You can limit the file size for preview to ensure performance is not impacted.

S3 Acceleration now available

With release 3.2.0, Yarkon will now fully support S3 Acceleration.

Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration enables fast, easy, and secure transfers of files over long distances between your client and an S3 bucket. Transfer Acceleration takes advantage of Amazon CloudFront's globally distributed edge locations. As the data arrives at an edge location, data is routed to Amazon S3 over an optimized network path.

You can now enable/disable S3 acceleration at the account and the bucket level using the Yarkon Admin Console.

Upload Manager now available

Yarkon Cloud gets a much improved Upload Manager, available now:

  • You can pause/resume/cancel uploads. If an upload takes longer than you expected, you can pause it, go offline, and proceed when you have connectivity again.
  • Yarkon will recover from connection issues; it will automatically retry in case of a failure, and will resume upload from where it was when a network error occurred, so you don’t lose time.
  • You can visually track the upload progress of all files, very helpful when you upload a large number of them.

Fixed download for IE11

Looks like one of our recent updates broke downloads when using Internet Explorer 11. If you are one of the few still using this browser, things should be good now, starting with release 3.0.3 and onwards.

SDK Edition Improvements

We continue making enhancements to the API of the SDK Edition, mostly following requests coming from users. In the new 2.8.1 build of Yarkon, we added support for custom search, allowing developers to enhance the built-in search functionality with their own implementation.

See more here: API Documentation.

Added Support for One-Zone IA Storage Class

Yarkon will now support the recently added S3 storage class option, One-Zone Infrequent Access.

Added Support for Standard IA Storage Class

Yarkon always had support for the "Reduced Redundancy" storage option. We now added support for "Standard IA" (Infrequent Access).

This is a great option for documents you need to access less frequently, but when needed, they have to be readily available. "Standard-IA" offers the high durability, throughput, and low latency of Amazon S3 Standard, but with a low per GB storage price and per GB retrieval fee.
