beook 6.2

Thursday December 5, 2019

With this update some new features are available, besides numerous improvements and bug fixes.

  • Printing of single pages is possible, if this was configured with the ebook at the request of the provider.
  • Corrects an error when transferring groups from the Share function of version 5.
  • Expired licenses (due to a device overdraft) receive a "grace period" of 7 days until they need to be renewed.
  • Supports the correction of tasks with different strategies (e.g. with a certain similarity or tolerance).
  • Active marking provides visual feedback.
  • Fixes a problem when updating ebooks.
  • The cloud data can be exported unencrypted, so they can be re-imported encrypted on another user profile. This makes it possible to transfer the data from one incorrectly linked account to another.
  • During installation in the network, app folders can be created at a different location than in the profile (Experimentel, concerns the .swt folder in the userhome).
  • Web pages can always be opened by configuration in the external standard browser.
  • Improved detection of a valid network connection behind firewalls.
  • Proxy configuration support.

We recommend to perform the update.

beook 5.5, end of support

As of 31.12.2019, version 5.x of beook will no longer be supported and the servers of version 5 will be shut down. After that no more ebooks can be installed, it is no longer possible to log in and the cloud is no longer used. The ebooks can now only be used in "offline" mode. You should therefore upgrade to version 6 by the end of the year. You will find instructions on how to switch to beook 6 under How do I switch to beook 6?
