Core ownCloud developers meet several times a year to focus heads-down one week on improving and fine tuning ownCloud. Last week we had more than 20 developers meet in Stuttgart and Berlin, Germany to work on upcoming ownCloud releases.

We accomplished:

  • Significant speed improvement
  • UX and Design improvements and cleanup
  • Overlay sync icons
  • Polishing and fixes of latest features

Though very hard work, we had a blast and upcoming releases will be the best and most polished releases so far.

If you are interested in participating in ownCloud development than we have some great news. We just announced our first ownCloud Contributor Conference – strictly for those interesting in getting elbow deep in coding — in August in Berlin.

This is a great event where everyone who wants to develop ownCloud apps, improve the core, work on packaging, documentation, testing or design can join, work with the core developers and become a part of the world-wide community.

We expect more than 100 people so register and join.

    Great news – when can we expect the overlay sync icons to land in oC? This is a much requested feature and would signal feature parity with closed-source competitors to end users, so it would be great to know when we can expect it to be rolled out.

    Toan,

    I have seen that it is in the works. If you’re interested in speeding it up, you can join development at https://github.com/owncloud/mirall or post a bounty for this feature for a volunteer developer at https://www.bountysource.com/teams/owncloud

    Meanwhile, don’t hold your breath for feature parity of our competitors with ownCloud anytime soon – at least half the apps on apps.owncloud.com don’t have any equivalent in any competing product. If this feature makes ownCloud have all features the competition has that puts it just MORE ahead, if you ask me.
