Downloading large files over slow or unstable connections is always a challenge. With the new version 4.4.5 of Yarkon Cloud we added an option we call "spread", allowing the client to split the download of large files across multiple browser connections, thus improving speed and reliability.
Improved download support for large files
Audit Trail now available
Now supporting all current AWS regions
We just completed certifying Yarkon with all new AWS regions and they should be all available in the UI, starting with version 4.3.2 and onwards. Great to see how much AWS regional coverage has grown over the last few years.
Optimized preview pane
The preview pane was causing some undue pain - an optimization we put in place a while back broke recently, resulting in some unnecessary processing. It is now fixed in version 4.3.1 and onwards.
Server Side Encryption now working for all
We identified some situations where the Server Side Encryption feature was not working correctly for some clients. It is now fixed in version 4.3.0 and above.
Features are now front and center
We made a change to the Overview page to ensure that the advanced features of Yarkon are easier to discover and turn on. The administrator will now have a clear view of all available features, and which is in use.
We have a new website
We are getting ready for the new year with a newly designed website.
The site is now broken into two distinct areas: information, and documentation. The informative side of the site is simple and easy to follow, while the documentation side is now using the common "Read The Docs" design, making it easier to follow and find the document you need quickly.
Based on customer feedback, we realized that a couple of the more advanced features of Yarkon, namely document sharing and storage class management, are confusing to some of the end users. We added gating for these features on the server side, and turned them off by default. If you want your users to keep their access to these features, simply go to the admin console and check the respective box in the Features page.
Fix for PDF preview
In some cases, the preview shown for PDF documents was not updating properly, showing the wrong information. Oops. It is now fixed.
Support for "VPC Only" buckets
When you want to be even more secure, you set your buckets to allow access from inside your VPC only. For this use case, Yarkon Server now includes a "Proxy" mode, in which all client requests are routed through Yarkon Server. End users can now access your "VPC Only" S3 buckets with that enhanced security, with no need to set up additional proxy servers.
