Micro Focus is pleased to announce the general availability of Micro Focus Filr 4.2, the latest iteration of our powerful Enterprise File Sync-and-Share solution that gives users the easy, anytime file access and powerful online collaborative editing capabilities they want while allowing admins to remain in control of their organization's files and security.

Filr 4.2 includes exciting features and enhancements that will bring greater utility and ease-of-use for our customers, including:

Fully Redesigned User Interface

The end-user experience has been completely revamped to remove friction, promote ease-of-use, and create better, more intuitive interactions for users.

Content Editor Appliance Updates

The Content Editor Appliance is now supported in the new web client user interface so users can simultaneously edit and collaborate on many types of files.

Beginning with Filr 4.2, Content Editor (CE) appliance supports collaborative editing with the new Filr Web Client and following enhancements:

  • CE integration with NetIQ Access Manager (NAM): NAM can be configured to act as Reverse Proxy service for CE site when using the Online-Edit option. For more information about enabling this feature, see Content Editor With NetIQ Access Manager For Online Edit Feature.

  • Watermark: A new option is available to display the email id or user name across the document as a watermark. A watermark is used to protect the original document and also as a reminder to others not to steal your content. For more information, see Content Editor Dialog.

General Security and Stability Enhancements
