Although the development team deserves applause for introducing new features to support remote workers in the face of COVID and made improvements, the aggressive marketing of the numerous features in Nextcloud Hub 20 have aroused some of my suspicions. In fact, I am very concerned about the impact of cranking out major releases at a dizzying rate on home and medium-sized business users.
At a technical level, devices and network connections at home are frequently at a disadvantage compared to the office infrastructure, making performance a critical factor for home office workers. Under the hood, this release introduces a number of significant improvements:
Defining my concerns:
Although @JimmyKater believes that NC 20 is geared toward home users, I am hoping that developers would consider pushing back the end-of-life date for Nextcloud 18 and NC 19 to hopefully provide users more stability while the kinks in Nextcloud 20 Hub gets worked out.
With respect to those running Nextcloud with limited resources, e.g. those running the software on shared hosting, where certain errors are much more likely to result from bloated code, what do the developers have in mind for code review before the development process gets out of hand?
