Dear friends!

This spring seems to be rich for news! Recently we have released ONLYOFFICE Documents for iOS, updated SaaS solution to version 8.5.0 and today we have prepared 5 great pieces of news for ONLYOFFICE open source community. First things first.

#1 Document Server ver. 3.0

The long-awaited Document Server 3.0 is already available for Linux users. From now on you can easily deploy and run it on any Linux machine using Docker containers.

Just to remind, ONLYOFFICE Document Server 3.0 comprises text, online excel spreadsheet and presentation editors with a modern flat interface, fully compatible with Office Open XML formats (.docx, .xlsx, pptx) enabling to co-edit documents in real time.

#2 Mail Server ver. 1.0

Document Server 3.0 is the biggest but not the sole news we’d like to share with you.

Two weeks ago we have announced the Mail Server stable version release for SaaS users and today we are pleased to make it available for the Linux community as well, so that you could easily create and manage corporate mailboxes using your own domain name on your Linux machine.

For deployment instructions, refer to
#3 Community Server ver. 8.5.0

Send large file(s) as links, set up default mail address, drag and drop folders preserving their structure, all these opportunities are presented in the ONLYOFFICE Community Server ver. 8.5.0 that we are happy to introduce today.

    My face lit up with a smile when I saw the Docker whale in this post. As a server admin and developer, I’m very glad to discover that each server component has its own Docker image! Especially happy to see a docker-compose file for single-command deployment of all containers! (Images are downloading now, will try out the new version when it’s done.)

    Thanks!! This is Awesome. I’ve downloaded and started the docker container and it works like a charm and without trouble. Great Work!

    A question, source Code will be published on Github?? or There is going to be a packaged version not just the docker image?

      The source code will be listed on GitHub in the shortest time. Stay tuned!

    Great stuff at all! Very easy Installation, so many Features and easy to use functions! Currently just (still) missing the LDAP Integration 🙂

    But anyway: just sensational work, keep it going!

    Best regards

    The file format MS Office uses is called “Office Open XML” and not “Open Office XML” 🙂

      Thank you, Finkregh! I have corrected.
