CloudBerry Explorer 5.1 is a minor release that packs a number of highly-requested features focusing on expanded integration with Amazon's cloud storage services.
Support for encryption and compression for Amazon Drive
Starting from version 5.1 onward, CloudBerry Explorer natively supports encryption and compression for Amazon Drive. That is to say, you can now access encrypted and compressed files straight from the app's GUI. You should naturally first indicate the encryption password in the settings. Under Tools, click Options.
Under Compression and Encryption, select the Use Client Side Encryption checkbox.
Click Apply and then OK. Afterward, you can access your compressed and encrypted files by means of CloudBerry Explorer.
BackBlaze B2 Web URL support
In the latest iteration of CloudBerry Explorer, we have implemented the support for BackBlaze B2 Web URL. In other words, you can now generate direct links to your files with just a few clicks. To do so, right-click on any file stored on your B2 cloud storage and click Web URL.
A pop-up window will appear with a generated link to your file.
MBS IAM Role Wizard
An IAM role is similar to a user, in that it is an AWS identity with permission policies that determine what the identity can and cannot do in AWS. You can now go ahead and create such role via CloudBerry Explorer. That, in turn, gives you greater flexibility with configuring proper policies. The new wizard is available under Access Manager (IAM) — New CloudBerry MBS IAM role. To learn more, be sure to check out our tutorial that covers the matter at length.
Assuming IAM roles
A feature that has been requested by many of our customers — the ability to assume IAM roles. For now, it resembles a workaround rather than a feature, as you need to tinker with certain program files to be able to assume roles. For this purpose, we've written a lengthy tutorial that will explain step-by-step how to assume IAM roles by means of CloudBerry Explorer.
