Two-factor authentication via an authenticator app;
Generation and safekeeping of a unique MachineKey when installing a Docker container via script;
Bearer authentication (HTTP authentication scheme that involves security bearer tokens).
To enable 2FA via an authenticator app, go to the portal Settings -> Security -> Two-factor authentication, and select the By authenticator app option:
After logging out from the portal, a QR code is generated. Use a third-party authenticator app like Google Authenticator, or Authy to convert this QR code into an access code, and then enter it when signing in to your portal.

Navigation through ONLYOFFICE documents, emails, and other content is easier now with the newly implemented Elasticsearch engine.
In the Documents module, you are able to search for the needed file by its name and content*, activate search in the current folder only, and directly go to the folder containing the found item. Besides, with the newly added filter, you can search media files.
* Please note that the full-text search within a document and email content is available for the users of ONLYOFFICE Enterprise Edition only, and can be enabled via Control Panel.
New document access rights: Comment
With this new type of access rights, you can share ONLYOFFICE documents, spreadsheets and presentations (docx, xlsx, and pptx files) allowing other users to view and add comments to docs.
New document access rights: Form Filling
If you need to fill out a contract, or a survey, create a form adding necessary input fields with the Content Controls feature, and then grant the corresponding access rights to your co-worker, or customer. By doing so, you let users insert data into the chosen fields only.
Note that the Form Filling sharing option is available for DOCX files only.
