Hi there,

in the past weeks we prepared the Nextcloud 13.0.0 release with multiple betas. Today we are releasing the last planned beta for 13.0.0 before we release RC1. We ask you to give it a good try and report back issues to us in our bug tracker: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues

You can find the release archives (and check sums) in the prerelease folder on our download server: https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases/nextcloud-13.0.0beta4.zip (see https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases/ for tar.bz2 and other files)

As always: have a backup available if something goes wrong.

We will bring the beta channel of the updater server also live to server the beta 4 within the next hour.

Happy testing and have a nice weekend
Morris

Also see the general announcement for NC 13:

As a new feature, there is E2E (end to end encryption):

Can the developers comment on the status of the clients and possibilities to test this? @tobiasKaminsky @rullzer @ios

Well, if it is a paying customer, absolutely, after all - that is what helps us pay the bills of the people who wrote this :smiley:

Hi,
Gave 13.0.0beta4 a test run on RaspberryPi using Nacho’s nextcloudpi-config and nc-nextcloud, all 11 and 12 versions install nicely. v13.0.0beta4 showing "some files not passed the integrity check"
Full report here

Hi @OliverV what is the content of .user.ini or did you changed it compared to https://github.com/nextcloud/server/blob/master/.user.ini (then this message is expected).

I see, that explains it:

pi@nextcloudpi:~ $ sudo cat /var/www/nextcloud/.user.ini
upload_max_filesize=10G
post_max_size=10G
memory_limit=768M
mbstring.func_overload=0
always_populate_raw_post_data=-1
default_charset='UTF-8’
output_buffering=0
max_execution_time=6600
max_input_time=6600

Replacing it with source .user.ini resolved it! Anything you want tested?
Added the local (test) account to android 2.0.0 and Linux desktop v2.3.3. apps
Enabled external storage for a mounted USBdrive.
All works fine and as expected on pi3

Any change will trigger this. With Nextcloud 13 this should also mostly not needed anymore, because all apps and also the web UI support chunking. Only real 3rdparty webdav clients would profit from this, because they don’t support Nextcloud’s chunking.

hi,

yes, NCP can perform changes to .user.ini ( like max_execution_time and the like ).

care to explain what chunking is?

if there’s integrity tests we will have to move those settings somewhere else, like in /etc/, but I like the modularity of using .user.ini

Hoping to know when will support backblaze (b2) externalstorage?

Installed without problems on raspberry pi. Everything is working so far :slight_smile:

By the way: You might change the year of the release dates for Nextcloud 13 from 17 to 18 on https://github.com/nextcloud/server/wiki/Maintenance-and-Release-Schedule :wink:

Thanks - was just updated minutes ago :slight_smile:

B2 external storage is not on our road map, but it can be implemented as an app that brings this, like the files_external_dropbox app does this for Dropbox for example: https://github.com/icewind1991/files_external_dropbox

Hi there,

is migrating from owncloud supported? If yes, what owncloud versions are compatible? I currently run 10.0.4. When running the updater from nextcloud 13.0.0 beta4 I get:

Exception: Updates between multiple major versions and downgrades are unsupported.
Update failed

Thanks for any update on this.
