Papermerge 3.0

I am very excited to announce the release of Papermerge DMS 3.0.

Comparatively to all previous releases, version 3.0 underwent serious architectural changes. I won't bore reader with all technical details, I will just briefly mention two biggest technical changes:

  • frontend rewritten in TS/React
  • REST API now served with FastAPI

Also, the format of storing files on the disk differs from previous versions - alone this fact makes version 3.0 incompatible with all previous releases.

Here is the list of exciting features that version 3.0 brings:

  • support for jpeg/png/tiff formats is back
  • full text search is now backed up by Solr search engine
  • multiple authentication backends are supported e.g. oauth2.0/OIDC (not documented yet)
  • well documented REST API
  • dual panel mode
  • page management - delete, reorder, rotate, merge, move pages between documents
  • OCR with text overlay (thanks to OCRMyPDF)

Go to 3.0 documentation and play with docker compose setup. Also, for production deployment on remote server there Ansible playbook available as well.

Enjoy!
