0.0.4 Alpha: new authentication system

Sam Tuke Jul 8 2020 Share

For improved security this release introduces a new administrator registration and authentication system — viewing the interface now requires the user to be logged in. We also improved debugging via better error and logging messages, and a new verbose output mode.

Please note this release is still in Alpha! Share your feedback using the link at the bottom of every application page.
