Pre-release v2.6 is now available (Updated 9 Dec)

BREAKING CHANGE: If you're self-hosting Joplin Server you'll need to upgrade it to 2.6 too to work with this version. This is because it's now making use of the native locks, which improves sync performance and reduces server load. As a general rule Joplin Server is backward compatible with older Joplin clients so you're never forced to upgrade all your clients. However newer clients might require a specific Joplin Server version and in that case you might have to upgrade from time to time.

The new Per-Notebook Sort Order functionality is very nice.


Nice update !
However, it seems that it disturbed the spacing between the title lines of the notebook :wink: But maybe it's related to the theme (@Nacandev)

I think it's indeed a theme issue as for me it looks fine with the default dark theme.

Edit: The vertical alignment of icons doesn't seem right by default though, I'll check.


Great changes!

But did something change with the interpretation of numbers, especially leading zeros regarding the alphabetical sort order? Now leading zeroes seems to get ignored and thereby equal numbers seem to get sorted randomly like this:


Is there a criteria which results in the ordering afterwards, that i cant see (date of creation or something)? The alphabetically sorting of notebooks seems to behave different (here a 003 gets sorted higher than a 2). Maybe that could be alligned.
