We’ve just released a major update to the ‘On Premise’ version of Clibu. The ‘On Premise’ version (Clibu OP) enables you to run Clibu on your own PC or Server with all data kept locally.
For various reasons Clibu OP had fallen somewhat behind our hosted cloud version (Clibu Cloud.).
Over the past few months we’ve put considerable effort into updating the tooling and refining the workflow required to build Clibu OP. This will enable us to keep Clibu OP releases in sync with Clibu Cloud from now on.
You may in fact notice that the new Clibu OP release is actually ahead of the current Clibu Cloud version. This is because we’ve done a major update to the server as well as many of the Browser modules and we aren’t quite ready for these to go live in Clibu Cloud just yet.
Clibu OP also has some new features which we’ll tell you about once we complete work on the next Clibu Cloud release.
As a teaser some things we are working on include the ability to attach files to Clibu articles, the ability to drag images from your operation system File Explorer and drop them on Articles and new Article Titles to name a few.
For those already using Clibu OP you need to update MongoDB (the database we use) to the latest release, V3.4 as noted here.
If you are interested in using Clibu OP open a support ticket telling us why and what you want to use Clibu for and we’ll get back to you with details.
Note that Clibu OP runs on Windows only at this time, however you can access it using a Browser on any operating system that can connect to the Windows PC.
The latest Clibu Web Clipper now works with Clibu OP, see here for details.

Finally thanks to Graham Rhind for his assistance with initial issues with the new Clibu OP.
