Adding server with testpilot client

After the web interface, the ownCloud desktop client is probably the most important tool for using ownCloud. Unobtrusively running the background, many users rely on it to sync their files. There is a big new release coming: the ownCloud Desktop Client 2.0, introducing multi-account support and more. To help get this release stable and release-quality as possible, we ask you to help test it!

What’s Coming

The new client was introduced on the Testpilots mailing list:

We have released the first beta of the desktop client. The big highlight with this release is the support for multiple accounts as well as the ability to define a size for folders that need confirmation before the client will sync them (“confirm feature”). In addition, 2.0 also supports long paths on Windows.

We encourage everyone to test, especially because the multi account feature, while providing great value, required some pretty significant changes.

Fully synced!

How to Help

You can grab the client on the ownCloud testing download page.

Special Testpilot client

New in ownCloud test land is the Testpilot client, designed specifically to test ownCloud without using your primary account. This way you can have a test ownCloud server running, ideally a copy of your production system – and run the test client against that. Grab packages for: Windows, OS X and Linux.

The more testing the client can get over the coming weeks, the faster the release can come and the more stable it is – so jump in!
