It's hard to train deep learning algorithms when most of the positive feedback they get is sarcastic.

Nextcloud 12.0.1 is here

1 Share


After over 2 months of hard work, we finally release a new set of updates to Nextcloud 10, 11 and 12. These bring a large number of fixes with over 120 improvements in Nextcloud 12 and several dozen in Nextcloud 10 and 11. We want to thank the almost 100 community members who helped us test these improvements over the last weeks! This update marks the full start of the rollout of 12 to all users using our stable release channel. The Nextcloud Snap will also start to update soon and we expect distributions to deliver the improvements to their users swiftly as well.

Fixes & improvements

This release fixes a number of potential issues and adds a series of small improvements to usability, performance and reliability. It also introduces the Nextcloud Education Edition bundle, a set of apps aiming for the Educational market which is quickly adopting Nextcloud.

Besides bugfixes and the new bundle, some other minor improvements were included. A few highlights:

You can find Nextcloud 12.0.1 on our download page and grab zip files for 11.0.4 and 10.06 from the changelog page.

If you run the Stable update channel you should see a notification about availability of Nextcloud 12.0.1 within a few days.

That's how every day should start 🤓 ! I like flawless upgrades 🤙 ! Thank you @Nextclouders for the good work! Everything is up and running 👍pic.twitter.com/rqxiqyZNO5

Upgrading from ownCloud 10

Nextcloud 12.0.1 supports upgrades from ownCloud 10.0.1 and 10.0.2.

If you receive a `Table 'nextcloud.oc_accounts' doesn’t exist` exception while upgrading, you can add these three lines as a workaround until we release 12.0.2. The issue came to our attention just after we finished the release and didn’t show up in any previous testing so we expect this to only hit very few users.

Of course, whenever you prepare for an upgrade and certainly a migration, it is wise to help test release candidates. Those who find an upgrade bug earn a t-shirt, plus: we fix the issue so that when the final release is out it all goes smooth!

Reminder: Nextcloud Conference!

If you are interested in privacy & the dangers of surveillance and believe in self-hosting as an important part of the solution, the Nextcloud Conference, starting on August 22 in Berlin is the place to be.

During the week we will discuss and code in small teams while Friday we have a program aimed at enterprise users. Saturday 26 and Sunday the 27th of August we feature keynotes, lightning talks and workshops where you can learn more about Nextcloud, its apps, its people and its ambitions. Here’s a blog with some reasons why you should join!

If you’re convinced already, learn more or just register for free on our website.

You know, given that space itself is a "thing", does "nothingness" and "emptiness" still exist in modern physics?
