Software Update: Joplin 2.8.8

Spread the love

Joplin is an open source note-taking application available for Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, and macOS. It can add photos, images, videos and documents to notes and is able to create math notes and diagrams. The notes can be stored locally but also online in the Joplin Cloud, or in Dropbox and OneDrive. The latest version is 2.8.8, which minor improvements contains. Below are the main improvements made in version 2.8.

Multiple profile support

Perhaps the most visible change in this version is the support for multiple profiles. You can now create as many application profile as you wish, each with their own settings, and easily switch from one to another. The main use case is to support for example a “work” profile and a “personal” profile, to allow you to keep things independent, and each profile can sync with a different sync target.

To create a new profile, open File > Switch profile and select Create new profile, enter the profile name and press OK. The app will automatically switch to this new profile, which you can now configure. To switch back to the previous profile, again open File > Switch profile and select Default.

Note that profiles all share certain settings, such as language, font size, theme, etc. This is done so that you don’t have reconfigure every details when switching profiles. Other settings such as sync configuration is per profile. The feature is available on desktop only for now, and should be ported to mobile relatively soon.

Save Mermaid graph as PNG/SVG

This convenient feature allows exporting a Mermaid graph as a PNG or SVG image, or allows copying the image as a DataUrl, which can then be pasted in any compatible text editor. Thanks Asrient for implementing this!

Publish a mini website using Joplin Cloud

Joplin Cloud now supports publishing a note “recursively”, which means the notes and all the notes it is linked to. This allows easily publishing a simple website made of multiples and images. To make use of this feature, simply select Also publish linked notes when publishing a note.

And more!

In total there are 38 changes to improve the app reliability, security and usability. Full changelog can be found here
