Development

Lots of work last week – let’s start with code.

Core and apps

On apps.owncloud.com:

  • The User Conversations 0.1.6 release brings clickable hyperlinks, highlighting new messages, the ability to delete posts and bugfixes to User conversations.
  • The powerful JavaScript XMPP Chat app got updated to version 0.7.2. A series of fixes and small improvements is introduced as well as a new website.
  • Owncloud SSO IPS Connect introduces single sign on with IPS support to ownCloud.
  • There was again work on the sharing overview and the upgrade progress, LDAP support and user management.
  • Some work was put in to make large files on 32bit systems work a bit smoother.

Other development updates

  • The ownCloud desktop client 1.6 RC 3 came out last week while the final release was made on June 2. See Danimo’s blog for an overview of what is new.
  • Volkan updated us on progress in the 5th week of his GSOC project.
  • ownCloud Android client 1.5.6 and 1.5.7 were released, bringing Instant upload of videos (requires Android 4 and camera app compatibility), a new look for the action bar and various bugfixes to Android ownClouders
  • Work on pull-down-to-refresh for android made progress.

ownCloud Contributor Conference

Other ownCloud happenings

The ownClouders twitter account alerted us about a new and very awesome ownCloud application for Mac users, ownDrop. ownDrop is a one-click upload client for Mac OS X, allowing you to drop a file on the icon in the system tray and returning the url, ready to share on the clip board.

On the development mailing list, I announced that we’d like to start a Community Working Group to turn the occasional frustration and irritation that arises out of our enthusiasm into something positive.

This week, a hackaton is still taking place in Stuttgart and a smaller one in Berlin. Both have been creating a lot of code churn in our repo’s, with Pull Requests being merged in preparation for the Feature Freeze this Friday! If you have time: go over some Pull Requests… Find a list of open PR’s for core here.

A much bigger hackathon is being organized in the form of the ownCloud Contributor Conference, announced today.

There are meetups being organized around ownCloud! For those of you living in or close to Berlin or Münich, there will be a meetup every third Wednesday of the month. All ownCloud meetups will be gathered on owncloud.meetup.com.

ownCloud meetups are to learn more about ownCloud or getting coding work done. If you know of other (regular or not) meetups or are interested in organizing one yourself, let us know so we can help you out!

Eighty Percent ownCloud

Recently the German computer magazin C’t posted an article about file sync solutions (“Unter eigener Regie”, C’t 23, 2018) with native sync clients. The article was pretty positive about the FOSS solution of… Nextcloud! I was wondering why they had not choosen ownCloud’s client as my feeling is that ownCloud is way more busy and […]
