The team is pleased to announce the availability of Passbolt CE v2.13. This release includes new functionalities, most notably the email digest functionality.

Email digest

The email digest functionality will help you combine email notifications of the same kind into one single message. So, it will group similar emails for a given user, for a given time period (the frequency of passbolt email cronjob) or when a volume limit is reached. This will help reduce the email notifications, especially when you import/share a lot of passwords at once.

You can enable this feature by switching the following line in your server crontab:. /var/www/passbolt/bin/cake EmailQueue.sender

To /var/www/passbolt/bin/cake Passbolt/emailDigest.sender

You can also test the feature by calling it directly in the command line on your server.

Server key rotation

It is now possible to extend an expired server key and have the user accept the new server key without performing an account recovery. When the key change, the user will be prompted to accept the new one.

Migration to react

Part of the work done with this release includes some major refactoring of the front end code as part of the migration process to React. So, you will see some other visual changes for example, when loading the share dialog.

You can expect more visual changes in the upcoming releases.

Breaking changes

Another notable change: as part of this release we upgraded the OpenPGP.js. This may be a breaking change if you are using old OpenPGP keys with unsecure 2-byte hash. If you use such a key we advise you to try to re-export your private key from Gnupg to produce a more secure hash and perform an account recovery.
