Nextcloud 10 is available now, with many unique new features and
capabilities beyond what we talked about in our Beta blog last month. The
beta brought, as highlights, plugin based Two Factor Authentication and
brute force protection, SAML authentication updates and more. Our final
release added new capabilities around handling workflows with automated
tagging and the File Access Control app. We wrote a blog about this. https://newsletter.nextcloud.com//lt.php?id=YkxWDUgAAh0KBAZS
We also introduced a monitoring app (and worked with the OpenNMS project on
support for that), UI improvements and more. Read all about it in our
Talking of Friday: we have a surprise in store for the visitors of the
conference on the 16th. We’ll be launching a very cool new product together
with two partners of ours. What it is? Sorry, you have to wait two more
weeks to find out! Time to register: https://newsletter.nextcloud.com//lt.php?id=YkxVBkgAAh0KBAZS
There has been much more news, some of the most interesting of which
Definitely. Seems like everything landed in the right place with nextcloud. All core developers have moved, most of community and app developers also. THeir open aproach is attracting more users and potential devs, and the developement pase is outstanding.
I have been testing nextcloud at my work place as we’re trying to find good replacement for google docs and all other corpo crap, and I have to say I’m very happy with new development. I like the UI tweaks and general direction the project is taking. I’ve also tested collabora app, but I’m not too impressed with it. Mainly due to the fact only one person at the time can edit the document. I hope this is only temporary hack and guys at collabora will work on proper collaboration in near future. Apart form that it’s a fast, responsive and decent piece of software. Still need to test spreed.me asI failed to install it on my first attempt (meet jitsi won that battle).
Generally I definitely advice everyone who wasn’t move from owncloud to nextcloud to do it asap because it’s simply worth it. I hope disroot will move soon, but first we need to finalize migration (had some roadblocks and so it’s taking slightly longer then we thought), and fix the mobile upload bug Cant download files via Android app (more about that in apropriate thread in a week or so). Our plan is to be able to jump on nextcloud ship by the end of september/first half of october.
Hi Noam. For end users nothing will change. Same website (slightly different ui), same sync links. We will advise to change desktop/mobile sync clients to nextcloud but they are very similar and the old owncloud clients will work just fine.
We just started testing nextcloud and would like to share it with you. You can access it via https://cloudtest.disroot.org
If you have a minute please check it out and try to help us find problems issues, apps suggestions below.
!Note! Changes you make on that instance will not be saved when we officially move to nextcloud. This is for test purposes only.
New features so far:
You can now move around apps position in the menu (just drag and drop)
We disabled documents app and replaced it with Collabora (Libreoffice online) where you can view and edit all libreoffice/msOffice etc files.
You can check yourself. Login to test instance with your disroot credentials. Xmpp works. Plus now we have spreedme (audio video conference) and by the time we move we should have audio video in xmpp web client too
