The marketplace is the new platform, where ownCloud apps are provided for downloading and upgrading. App developers upload their apps there, so ownCloud admins can automatically install them. The marketplace is currently still in beta, but is making progress!
Our development team worked hard to bring you these new features for the marketplace:
Updated save process of user settings
We standardized all data save dialogs for a better user experience. Changing your settings is now way more intuitive.
Updated upload process
If you want to publish an app, you can now double-check how the information, which you specified in the info.xml of your app, looks like on the marketplace. So you can publish your app the moment you think it’s perfect.
The market app in ownCloud is responsible for downloading and upgrading the other apps from the marketplace. We improved the integration of this app into the marketplace. The market app now supports bundles and lets users easily install apps contained in a bundle.
We fixed around 30 bugs, also bugs reported on the official marketplace bug tracker: https://github.com/owncloud/marketplace-issues. If you still find one, you can also report it there 😉 It will be appreciated.
You can now try out the Enterprise Apps!
Starting now, all ownCloud enterprise apps are available. As all other apps, the ownCloud enterprise apps are separate from the core to allow modular, parallel and therefore faster development in both the ownCloud core and the extensions. This also enables the admins to decide which features they want in their ownCloud.
If you are interested in the ownCloud enterprise features, it is now very easy to start a 30-day-trial. Generate yourself a demo license key in your marketplace account and start testing!
We hope that the marketplace is out of beta soon, so we can close down the old https://apps.owncloud.com and focus on new, better technology.
