DOCman 2.1 on Joomla 3.7 problem

Hi!

On a test site i upgraded Joomla from 3.4 to 3.7 and after that DOCman returns the following error every time I try to edit or make a new document. The error occurs both when using front end or back end interfaces.

KExceptionFailure | Fatal Error[500]

Call to a member function get() on null
.../administrator/components/com_docman/model/abstract.php:402
397 'created_by' => $this->getObject('user')->getId() 398 )); 399 } 400 elseif ($page->query['view'] === 'filteredlist') 401 { 402 $created_by = $page->params->get('created_by'); 403 $category = $page->params->get('category'); 404 405 if (empty($created_by) && empty($category)) 406 { 407 $categories = array();

What is the best solution? Will upgrading to DOCman 3.1 fix this problem? And lastly ... is upgrading from DOCman 2.1 to 3.1 a straightforward process?
