Call for testing: 14.0.4 RC 1, 13.0.8 RC 1, 12.0.13 RC 1


#1

Today we are releasing the RC 1 versions of the maintenance released for the major versions 14, 13 and 12. The releases can be found on our download server in the prereleases folder: https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases/

We will also put them into the beta channel on the updater server. Be aware: there is also the 15.0.0 beta release out that means if you are on 14.0.x and on the updater channel it will give you the 15.0.0 beta version instead of 14.0.4 RC 1. We went for this way to get some feedback on this new major version instead. If you wish to upgrade the 14.0.4 RC1 you need to go the manual way. We are working on improving this in the future.

Edit: For those of you that still only want to get 14.0.4 RC 1 and not 15.0.0 Beta 2, we have set up a special updater server only for this purpose. You can configure it in the config.php:

$CONFIG = [
	'updater.server.url' => 'https://updates.nextcloud.com/14.0.4rc1-on-beta-temporary/',
];

Once this is configured, your Nextcloud will show 14.0.4 RC 1 instead of the update to 15.0.0 beta 2 in the update section. Keep in mind to remove this config option from config.php after the upgrade was done to use the default update server again, because we will remove this once 14.0.4 is out.

Planned release date in next week Thursday.

Happy testing :robot:

14.0.4 RC 1

13.0.8 RC 1

12.0.13 RC 1

I don’t have the 15 and the 14.4 in my Updater. :frowning:


#3

Give us some time to deploy it. We want to wait for the beta 2 of 15.0.0 until we update the updater server. But this should be in within the next hour (once it is built). :wink:


#4

That means that the 15 beta 2 also comes out today?


#5

Correct :+1:


#6

Ok Nice Thanks.

Keep it up, NC 15, beta 2 is here!
#8

Are big changes between the 14 and the 15?


#9

See the beta blog - I put in a link to github :wink:

what can I do with this error message?


#11

Find that file .rnd in the root folder of the nextcloud installation. Check the permissions of that file.


#12

The .rnd file is created when using encryption tools like OpenSSL etc. and saved in the home directory of a user. My assumption is, that you’ve logged in to an account on the console, which has the Nexcloud directory set as its home directory.
You find further information here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/379943/what-is-the-rnd-binary-in-my-folder


#13

Any idea to why, everytime I add:

'updater.server.url' => 'https://updates.nextcloud.com/14.0.4rc1-on-beta-temporary/',

It’s removed from my config.php ?

Permissions on config.php:
-rw-r----- 1 www-data www-data 1706 Nov 16 12:47 /path/path/nextcloud/config/config.php


#14

As we received quite some feedback and noticed some papercuts, that would be good to fix in a second RC we decided to publish today another RC for the maintenance releases. The changelog looks like this for the RCs. The plan is still to release the finals on Thursday.

The releases will show up in the next minutes on the download server as well as in the beta channel on the updater. The special updater server for 14.0.4 is also updated then.

Happy testing.

14.0.4 RC 2

13.0.8 RC 2

12.0.13 RC 2
