Just two weeks after the launch of version 3.0 of our desktop client, a minor release was made available with a number of bug fixes. The Talk team published a beta of Talk 10 today, and the Nextcloud 20 beta 2 came out yesterday!
Our work on the upcoming major release is also progressing swiftly. A second beta has been made available which can certainly benefit from testing of the upgrade path, as well as the many improvements! As usual, we don’t want to spoil what is new yet, keeping it for our big reveal, so try it out for yourself.
Help us test these features, grab the beta here and install the test versions of the apps you care about.
Talk 10 first Beta
You can now help test the upcoming Talk 10 with the first beta. This release requires Nextcloud 20 Beta 2!
yes, I would much rather just talk about what’s new, but that would be shooting ourselves in the foot with the press. So we can’t.
But believe me, much of the changes are VERY obvious. Also, most of the most critical testing is to test upgrading. So if you make a backup of your current system and upgrade it to the beta and note no issues, you made a BIG contribution. If you note issues and report them, you also made a big contribution
Awesome. Had no trouble manually installing 10.0.0-beta1 on 20.0.0-beta3. Only issue is the system wanting to update Talk direct from the admin panel to beta2. Talk widget looks great. Drag and drop for re-arranging widgets is a nice touch.
I upgraded to Desktop client 3.0.1 but I think it was a mistake as the old version did all I need. It defaulted to whinging about folders bigger than 500MB until I found the option to turn it off. Really 500MB is considered too big nowadays? I have 147GB synchronised to an RPI4!
It also lost one of my folder sync connections, so I had to make it again. Why?
Although it seems to be running in the background there is no system tray icon to access it. I can get the GUI up from the start menu but what happened to the system tray icon?
Same on Mac OS - really annoying, especially since clicking on a file with a sync error doesnt lead you to the file anymore, it leads me to our nextclouds login page, after login, nothing to check the files
I went back to 2.6.5 and it works fine again, with a system tray icon that brings up a proper window that can be resized and moved. I will stick with that as I can’t see any reason to update a file sync application that correctly synchronises files.
These are not new folders, they were already synced with the previous version. The update must have switched back on the warning, unticked some of the folders and removed some of the connections.
@jospoortvliet Where can I write a ticket for the new dashboard app? Didn’t found an app specific repository. In the server repo? The dashboard doesn’t work here. Generates just a white page with a logo and an avatar.
client 3.0.1 just install and just desinstall on mac and go back 2.6.5
what this “bouiboui” !!!
view is too small
synchronise all the folder by default
when we want to correct conflict, open the web cloud instead of go to the file in the finder
