Florian Zyprian

We are pleased to announce the latest version of Konfuzio Server, version released-2023-04-23_18-48-59. This version uses Konfuzio Python SDK version v.0.2.16 and Konfuzio Document Validation UI version v.0.1.5. This version brings new features and enhancements to improve user experience and AI training time.

Important note on migration: Please note that with this version the internal format of the saved AI's changes. To ensure a smooth update process, existing AI's must be migrated to this Konfuzio server version before the update. The migration process can be done with the command "python manage.py resave_all_with_cloudpickle". If you need help or encounter any problems during the migration process, please contact our support team. The Konfuzio server will not start if there are non-migrated AIs. After the migration process, the usual update actions must be performed.

  • Users can now calculate and access Tokenizer via the web interface.
