The following features and improvements are new since Collabora Online 2.1.1:
- Support for avatars: The integrators can specify a pictures / avatars for the users of the documents via WOPI extension.

Collabora Online Development Edition (CODE) 2.1.2
Together with the release of Collabora Online 2.1.2 we will also release version 2.1.2 of the development edition of Collabora Online: CODE. The development edition is aimed at home users and contains the latest and greatest developments. We want as many people as possible to try it out and get back control of their own online documents. We’d also love to get people involved in our efforts to make LibreOffice Online even better. Download the Docker Image, enjoy using it at home and why not participate in the project too!

Any time frame when install packages will be available for Debian 9?
Hi Peter, sorry for the delay – Debian 9 packages have been available for some time =)
Yeah, I found the Debian 9 packages when 2.1.3 was released. Switched from Docker then and am much happier, easier to config, easier to upgrade, seems to run faster.
You guys going to recompile for an ARM64 version?
No plans for that currently, at least so far no customer has asked for this, when they do: certainly.
No windows versions?
You can run a Collabora Online docker image with the Windows Docker support (I imagine) – we’d appreciate feedback on how that works out.
