DeepaMehta 4.7 is a maintenance release that focuses on both, multi-user server installations, and touch devices. The DeepaMehta file repository is now under access control, in particular private and collaborative file repositories are now supported. Administrators can interactively configure a disk quota (for file uploads) on a per-user basis and enable/disable user accounts. For the first time the DeepaMehta webclient is usable also on touch devices. For plugin developers new features include a configuration facility, and webclient support for hierarchical menus. For detailed information see the Release Notes.
