I am pleased to announce the release of 4.5.7.1. This is a maintenance release that fixes urgent issues.

 

Downloads are available via your purchases page.

 

Issues Addressed

JIVE-10669, JIVE-10670 - Security issues in the admin console

JIVE-10377 - When a nightly LDAP sync job is enabled and there are many users, an out of memory error can occur

JIVE-10110 - Email notifications are sent from a specific user rather than the system users, causing unnecessary out of office auto-reply spam.

JIVE-10265 - Images not being stored on publish

JIVE-755 - Images aren't properly associated with the content they are embedded in

JIVE-10017 - Clicking on category name in Categories Widget should take you to the All Content tab

As announced in the Release Notes for Jive 5, Private Messages and the Jotlet.net Calendar Widget were deprecated as of Jive 5.0.  As a reminder, when the next major version of Jive is shipped next year we will discontinue support of those features.  Please note that by default, Private Messages are deactivated for Jive 5 communities as Direct Messages are a suitable and supported alternative.  If you have any questions related to your current Jive deployment and how this announcement may impact you please contact Support or your account manager.

 

Thank you,

Version Information


The SharePoint Connector supports Jive versions 4.5.4, 4.5.5, 4.5.5.2, 4.5.6, 4.5.6.1, 4.5.6.2, 4.5.6.3, or 4.5.7.0, and on the Microsoft side supports Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2010, Microsoft Office SharePoint Foundation 2010, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0.


SharePoint Connector 1.6.0.2 hotfix 1

01.10.12

Overview

When documents are socialized to Jive, they enter Jive as new documents and kick of email notifications for Jive users that are receiving email notifications for the specific place; this is the default when you join a group.

First, if a user is socializing a site with say 5000 documents, this could result in 5000 emails being sent to all the group members.
Second, if socializing a site with a small number of files but to a group with thousands of members, this could again cause thousands of emails.


Symptoms

Unwanted emails for all newly socialized SharePoint documents even when they are not really new documents, just new to Jive.

 

Resolution

As newly streamed documents enter jive, even though they are new to jive, they may be older than some threshold (like created weeks, months ago). If they are older then this configured threshold (see property below), then no email notifications will be sent. This prevents users getting emails for non-recent SharePoint streamed documents.
