Last month we released ownCloud 9.0, bringing major new features like comments, tagging and remove-server auto complete to you. As always we’ve been working hard to polish this release further, improving performance, reliability and scalability with ownCloud 9.0.1. We recommend to update your ownCloud instance as soon as you can. For those waiting for the updater app to notify them of the 9.0 availability, you can expect this before the end of the week. Enterprises waiting for the ownCloud 9.0 Enterprise Edition can expect its release next week, building on the community release with extensive file control capabilities.
Improvements and Testing
Minor ownCloud releases bring stability, security and performance improvements to the stable release series. This release introduces over 120 improvements to core ownCloud functionality including sharing, CalDAV and CardDAV, external storage, encryption and much more. A detailed list you can find in the changelog here. In the area of security, we follow our acclaimed security process and will disclose any improvements in 2 weeks time.
ownCloud tests releases both through automated means and through manual testing. Our releases come when we have fixed all problems we could find. You can help us find issues which might impact you by joining the Test Pilots and giving releases a whirl before they go out!
Note that at the time of publishing this, some of the packages and the Appliances and virtual machine images were still building, we will have them up on owncloud.org/install in a few hours.
