Seafile Pro 5.1.3 add Excel/PPT editing and device management

We are happy to announce that Seafile Pro 5.1.3 is ready. Two useful features are added:

  • Support xlsx/pptx editing via office web app (OWA)
  • List devices and syncing errors in admin panel

Support xlsx/pptx editing via OWA

Preview for office files via OWA was added a long time ago. Now the office file editing comes too. Unfortunately, We find that only pptx/xlsx editing via OWA is possible. Supporting docx is not possible with Office Web App. But with the new version of OWA (now called office online server 2016, not released yet), it may be possible. We will come back to this issue when office online server 2016 is ready.

List devices and syncing errors

As system admin, you likely want to know whether all the desktops syncing files as expected. Listing syncing errors for desktop clients are now available in the admin panel. Enjoy this feature and better manage your devices!
