v4.2.0 ~ The man who sold the world (ce)

Release date: August 24th, 2023.

Version 4.2 of the Community Edition introduces a number of enhancements and fixes to the passbolt experience.

One of the highlights of this release is the first brick of grid modernization. With it, you’re in control of what’s shown on the password grid. You can decide which columns you want to see, as well as their position and size. This first version is part of a larger improvement project. The aim is to make customization of the grid available and persistent with the next v4.3.0 release, and to later introduce new columns such as OTP, Icon & Tag.

Additionally, users will be pleased to see the new resource count chips displayed in the breadcrumb, providing an intuitive way to keep track of filtered resources.

Administrators are not left behind with this release as a few bugs with the command line healthcheck have been fixed and the feature is being prepared to be available in the UI soon.

Thank you for being a part of the community and for choosing passbolt.
