2.1.3 MetaDefender Vault

Release Date: 10 February 2021

MetaDefender Vault 2.1.3 is a feature release primarily focused on enhancements and bug fixes

New In This Release

Configuration to lock file expiration

In order to enforce a retention policy, administrators can now lock (disable) the file expiration input such that users cannot modify it to an arbitrary value

Simplify custom language translations process

When upgrading MetaDefender Vault administrators can select to download a previously translated language such that they are only required to translate the new texts instead of starting the translation process from scratch.

Bug fixes

Archive download failure with .NET Framework 4.7.1

Due to a faulty resolving of a system library, downloading a folder as an archive would not work correctly on systems that still use .NET Framework 4.7.1

Disable autocomplete attribute

Turned off autocomplete attribute for fields that handle sensitive data in order to instruct the browser not to store the value

Database backup on failure to upgrade

If there is an issue while upgrading and the installation does not complete, the database will be restored to the version before the upgrade

File password displayed in clear text when editing it

The password entered for password-protected documents or archives will not be displayed in clear text anymore when editing the password.

Filtering by file state with a language different than English

Filtering files by inputting a non-English text would not return the correct results on the Pending Approval page

Upgrading without any configuration

In some scenarios, upgrading from a previous version of MetaDefender Vault before doing the initial configuration was not possible

Incorrect audit event for edit file password

The audit event when adding or changing the password for a document would read file renamed instead of password updated
