What's new in Joplin 2.12


Support for Apple Silicon

A new release is now available for Apple Silicon, which provides improve performances on this architecture.

Rich Text editor

In this release, we've undertaken numerous enhancements and addressed various bugs in the Rich Text editor. Notably, we've introduced support for plugin toolbar icons. Additionally, we've refined the editor's ability to manage text that's copied from applications like Word, Office, and LibreOffice, thereby enhancing cross-application compatibility. Among the minor yet impactful improvements, we've fine-tuned the handling of newlines and paragraphs—a highly requested feature. Another notable update is the improved automatic switching between light and dark modes.

Altogether, this release encompasses around 12 significant changes for the Rich Text editor, and rest assured, there's more to come in the future!

Share permissions

Using Joplin Cloud Teams, you now have the ability to customize the read and write permissions for the notebooks you share. You have the option to grant other users permission to edit the notes or share them as read-only. This ensures that you can confidently share a notebook without worrying about unintentional modifications by your friends or colleagues.

Email to Note

Joplin Cloud Pro and Teams also now include the Email to Note feature, allowing you to conveniently store your emails within Joplin Cloud. By simply forwarding your emails to your Joplin Cloud address, you can transform them into notes. The email's subject will serve as the note title, while the body of the email will be the note's content. These notes will be organized within a notebook named "Inbox."

More information in the Email to Note documentation.

Choose to resize an image or not

By default, when you add a large image, Joplin will ask you if you would like to shrink it down or not. With this new release, you now have the option to always ask, to always resize, or to never resize the image, giving you more flexibility and reducing the number of prompts in the app.

Rotating log

Up until now, the logs could grow to become very large, and if you wanted to shrink them down you would have to manually delete them. With this new release, we now automatically handle logs by rotating them - once the log becomes large enough it is moved to an archive. And once the archive is older than a number of days, it is deleted.


Like the desktop app, the mobile apps benefits from the Share Permissions update, as well as the Email to Note feature for Joplin Cloud. There are also plenty of other improvements - all in all there's 23 bug fixes, enhancements and security fixes in this release.

Okay this was big roundabout waste of time.I just updated 2.11.11 to 2.12.15 considering I only installed this application last week initially and I received the following error.

Joplin.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point DiscardVirtualMemory could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll

Obviously I Checked here, Nothing! I Check the web site, Nothing, I Check for supported versions of windows and the only information provided is "Windows (32 and 64)". I go to Github and look for this issue, Nothing!

I try reinstall and you have me running chkdsk and sfc /scannow to be sure my kernel32.dll is okay.

I go to the effort of setting up discord and look in #DEV #Main, Nothing.
I post the Issue there thinking something might be wrong with my computer or the application.

I continue looking at the problem and finally seen the procedure ' DiscardVirtualMemory' from Microsoft and that it's only available in:

Minimum supported client Windows 8.1 Update [desktop apps | UWP apps]

I revert to older version and I'm looking all over to see which OS is supported?? and you made this extremely easy to find among all the 300 revisions.

v2.12.7 (Pre-release) - 2023-07-13T12:55:31Z🔗
Improved: Updated packages css-loader (v6.8.1)
Improved: Upgrade to Electron 25. Note that it means that Windows 7/8/8.1 are no longer supported (#8451) (#8258 by Henry Heino)
Fixed: Fix issue with Apple Silicon version (#8452) (#6052 by Noah Nash).

Back to Discord to inform you that.

Please don't offer updates not supported or post information in News otherwise I would not have come here and wasted everyone's time. Improved: Upgrade to Electron 25 doesn't mean anything to anybody that isn't a developer or doesn't know what it is and as you can see why some people might skip this in the effort to save themselves some TIME.

Unpopular but I'm still on windows 7.

... and for good reasons, I believe :wink:

Will it be revised in the future to support Windows 7?

I want to enable iframe tag function for exporting HTML files. However, Joplin currently disables it for security reasons. It would be great if this feature could be considered in the future.


I got this error on KDE Kasts for one of the nightly windows releases and it turned out to be a problem with the automated build process.

I am doing google how to install windows 10 operating system

The "email to note documentation" link 404s fyi

A note to folks who do theming stuff and/or edit user*.css for themselves...

The Electron update in Joplin v2.12.x moves Chromium from v95 to v114, and that means the :has() pseudo-class is in place and works.

This can simplify your selectors and let you pull off some things you couldn't before without access to JS.


This is not yet working on Linux. Today I tested and it stays on light theme always.
