MimerDesk 1.5.3 includes an improved file management system which makes working with files in groups simple yet capable. The new version controlling system and locking system enables concurrent editing of files and ensures file intergrity.

All common file formats can now be previewed with the newest browsers through MimerDesk.

MimerDesk can be used as an Internet radio. With MP3 Streaming technology you can stream mpeg encoded files over the network straight to the home users speakers without any downloading. MimerDesk even supplies tools to edit MP3 tags.

Downloading more than one file at a time is now possible. The user can select the files he/she wants and download them in one Zip or Tar/Gzip compressed file. The compression reduces network load and download times.

Translations have improved. New languages include Thai and Russian. The Italian, Finnish, English, Swedish, Spanish, German and Galician translations have been updated. The new localization system in MimerDesk includes comprehensive translation management tools.

In addition MimerDesk 1.5.3 fixes bugs found in earlier versions and adds a bunch of new smaller changes and features.

MimerDesk 1.6 will be released by the end of the summer. It will make working in groups and navigation through MimerDesk easier, and be even more usable for everyday use.
