CODE 2.0 updates

code-logoWe’ve have released the first update of Collabora Online Development Edition 2.0. A lot happened under the hood, but there are also some nice new features!




  • Inclusion of Google Noto font family, which aims to support all languages with a harmonious look and feel.
  • Fixed localization of the menu bar
  • Improved Writer’s Format menu, including page size and orientation.
  • New startup options for CODE (requested by user at
        -e 'username=admin' -e 'password=123456'

    in docker command line set the username and password environment variables in container, which will be used by the script and it sets the username and password for the admin console.

  • WOPI Postmessage API updates:
    • Session owners (sessions which have their OwnerId === UserId in their CheckFileInfo response) now have the ability to terminate other sessions opening the same document. You can use this only if you enable it by specifically adding a special field to WOPI’s CheckFileInfo.
    • You can hide the complete ‘File’ menu from the menu bar or ‘Save’, ‘Print’ and ‘Download as’ individually. Each of them have corresponding fields in CheckFileInfo response which must be turned on to hide them. If all are hidden and there is nothing for ‘File’ menu to show, ‘File’ is hidden.
    • Hosts now have the ability to ‘Save’, ‘Print’ and ‘Export’ using the PostMessageAPI. See more details at
  • Under the hood:
    • stability fixes
    • improved logging

For ownCloud and Nextcloud integrations, this release requires Collabora Online Connector 1.1.13, because UserCanWrite WOPI property must be boolean, not string. Other implementations should take this into account.


How to update

Simply update with:

docker pull collabora/code

CODE updates

code-logoJust last month we announced interesting Collabora Online Development Edition updates and now we already have a new set of amazing features ready for you.

This update includes some very useful UI improvements and bugfixes.

UI improvements

  • We’ve improved the shared editing experience. Now you can see who is viewing the document, simply by selecting the user button in the status bar.
  • The user names are added to the comments, showing the correct comment authorship.
  • We’ve added new context menus: Update table of contents and Delete table of
    contents in Writer
  • And you can now easily insert footnotes, endnotes, page breaks and column breaks, using the new option in the Writer menu.


Bug fixes

The main bugfixes in this update are:

  • Handle WOPI urls with spaces
  • AutoSum works in Calc now
  • Handle disk full situations more gracefully

How to update

Simply update with:

docker pull collabora/code


Change in URL scheme

If you use Apache2 reverse proxy, as described on this page, you need use a new rule for main websocket:

# Main websocket
ProxyPassMatch   "/lool/(.*)/ws$"      wss://$1/ws

CODE updates

code-logoDevelopment is going rapidly and we just updated the Collabora Online Development Edition. The most interesting new features are resizeable rows and columns by mouse in Calc and SSL termination support for reverse proxies. Also, we are making great progress on full collaborative editing!

Resizeable rows and columns by mouse in Calc

This animation explains this new feature perfectly:


SSL termination support for reverse proxies

The SSL termination option in the config file enables integration of CODE with SSL termination proxies, which handle incoming SSL connections, decrypt the SSL and pass on the unencrypted request to the server.

Full Collaborative Editing preview

We are making great progress here. During the LibreOffice conference 2016 the first live demo of our current development was shown to the public. This feature has not been published yet in CODE – it is still in beta -, but you can work collaboratively with shared editing.

Check out the video of the preview of shared editing!

CODE updates

code-logoToday we’ve updated the Collabora Online Development Edition (CODE), including a list of nice improvements and many bugfixes. Last month we included shared editing and presentations enhancements, and now spreadsheets and overall usability got a big boost!

Spreadsheet improvements

spreadsheet_selectionYou can now select multiple cells with your mouse and apply your desired action over those selected cells (for example, change the background-color). With a single click anywhere on the spreadsheet again you deselect the cells again.

When you are in one cell, you can use the keyboard arrows to change cell. The improvement here is that when you are navigating to a cell outside of the visible area, the view will follow you.

And now, you can also insert, delete and rename sheets. Just click with the right mouse button on a sheet and a menu showing the possible options pops up.



The toolbar is responsive now. If your have a reduced screen size, the buttons that don’t fit will be under the ˅ button near the end of the toolbar. A simple click on that button reveals them. And, you can also use your scroll button on your mouse to scroll down within the document now.


Other improvements

It’s now possible to open password protected files (if you have the password, of course) and there have been many other bugfixes under the hood.

How to update

Your VM updates automatically. If you don’t see the changes (like the responsive menu), do a hard refresh that reloads the JavaScript files or restart you VM. Didn’t download CODE yet? Head out to the CODE page and get your own VM today!
