We’re delighted to announce that Mattermost 3.5 is now available for download. It increases system performance, especially at scale. It’s also easier to install and there are significant enhancements for mobile apps. Plus, we are pleased to welcome Russian speakers to Mattermost, which is now available in 11 languages. Thanks to all who have contributed and in particular our Most Valuable Professional for Mattermost 3.5, Harshavardhana who added Minio support for Mattermost file storage.
In this new release you will find the following enhancements:
New mobile experience offers larger, easier-to-tap menu buttons. BEFORE on left, and AFTER on right.
Minio as Self-Hosted S3-Alternative to Local File Storage
It is lightweight and easy to set up in a few minutes. The Amazon S3 compatible API enables users to adopt any cloud environment, both on-premise and hosted. Minio even has advanced features like erasure code, bitrot and lambda notifications.
Russian is our 11th language for Mattermost, expanding our software to another 150-250 million speakers.
This is one of the final major languages to arrive in Mattermost and we’re excited to be completing the set. Workplace messaging with Mattermost is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese and now Russian.
Thanks to the dozens of contributors who helped make the Russian release possible:
Save time with shortcuts to your favorite channels, now within easy reach on web, PC and mobile.
If you’ve got a busy sidebar, click the star beside the name of the channels you use the most and they will be moved to an easy-to-find Favorites section.
Big thanks to alsma for contributing this feature!
Standalone Web Server Mode
It’s now easier than ever to deploy Mattermost securely via Let’s Encrypt.
Mattermost 3.5 removes NGINX dependency with a “standalone web server” mode with auto-configuration of certificates via Let’s Encrypt. It gets us closer to making an Ubuntu/Debian package with seamless support for sudo apt-get install mattermost.
Need to import from Slack? Then you’ll find several improvements in the new release, including support for:
Slack channel topic and purpose
Comments on file uploads
Bot and integration messages
Moreover, a new CLI command, slack_import, supports the import of a Slack export zip archive file.
Huge thanks to George Goldberg for working on many of these improvements! George did such fantastic job we offered him a permanent role as a core committer and he’ll be joining Mattermost, Inc. full time. If you’re a contributor interested in a new career in open source, please let us know!
Very special thanks this release also to Jared Shields for wonderful new improvements to the Mattermost docs server, most importantly reorganizing documentation into separate guides and creating a new landing page for docs.mattermost.com:
New iOS and Android apps will be released soon, and have an improved user interface with Mattermost 3.5. Channel and account settings, and channel headers, are now full screen, and […] menu options are displayed larger for better usability.
