MicroBin v2 is now available 🎉

MicroBin v2 is finally released 8 months after v1.2.1 and 15 months after the initial commit. It implements all of the most requested features requested by the users and elevates MicroBin to a whole new level. With lots of new features come an overwhelming amount of configuration options, so there is a standardised Docker installation method and default .env file available for your convenience.

I am proud that MicroBin now contributes to a world-wide effort towards making privacy accessible and easy, and I hope v2 will help it towards becoming the secure self-hosted file-sharing solution. Development does not stop here though, GitHub issues are already lining up for v2.1, so I invite you try MicroBin if you have not already, and share your wishes with me so I can improve it further.

- Daniel
