Migration from Repository 1
Improvements and Differences to Repository Stack 1
Repository Stack 2 is now a real stack. This will allow you to place additional content on the same page as Repository Stack 2, like login information, branding, footer, etc.
Repository Stack 1 came with it's own theme based on Bootstrap 3, overwriting the theme which was used for the project. Repository Stack 2 depends on a page specific theme setting using Blankstrap 5 theme (or Foundry v3). The overall project theme is possible to remain the original selected theme like a standard theme, or any other framework like Foundation. For more information and free download of Blankstrap 5 theme check out https://instacks.github.io/blankstrap/.
Repository Stack 1 came with two basic authentication users. Repository Stack 2 comes with one basic authentication user.
Repository Stack 2 is able to integrate with UserAccess Stack for a dynamic subfolder creation, based on the logged in client. No more seperate Repository Stack installations are needed for different client permissions. For more information of UserAccess Stack check out https://instacks.com/useraccessstack/.
Repository Stack 2 allows to mass generate thumbnails of an directory with images, which works smoothly together with Gallery Stack 3 or Iconic Gallery.
Furthermore, improvements have been done to use a data table with filter and pagination options. The search now is more intuitive. Additional translations are provided.
