Playlist functionality and more in music app
Instant upload available now for video’s on Android Beta’s and RC’s of ownCloud desktop syncing app 1.6, promising faster syncing. Python client library third-party application developers made available, debate over doing a javascript library. If there is interest, we can do it.

Integrate ownCloud & Microsoft 365 to protect sensitive data
