The latest version of the Nextcloud desktop client introduces a series of nice improvements.
Update: 3.7.0 Desktop client version had a crash that was discovered after the final binaries were built. This is fixed in the latest released version of Desktop client 3.7.1. Please update to the latest version.
Struggling to understand why version 3.6.6. is still being offered as the current stable release 5 days after 3.7.0 released and 4 days after the above blog post published. Then I see on github that 3.7.1 is now tagged, so assuming there was something broken in 3.7.0.

The git log is the change log, targeted at technical people. Nothing is being sold on GitHub. However, this post is a news article from their corporate blog, which advertises new features to customers and end users. So if anything is being sold, it is being sold in blog articles like that on their official web site.
I would count myself as very technical and I cannot asses when updating the nextcloud-desktop package in NixOS if there is any relevant changes I need to take care unless I read through the entire git log and in question also look at the commits. I do not really have the time to do that for every release, so more often I just update the package and if it doesn’t crash or break otherwise in the first minutes of using it, it will be merged.
In older days there was a testpilot package for the client. That allowed you to install a beta besides (parallel) to your production client. That would be really helpful. Otherwise you need one more OS just for testing or uninstalling/installing on your daily OS.
Would this be a way you will go?
The reason why there are no more 32-bit builds is afaik the QT framework, which no longer offers 32-bit binaries. So you would not only have to compile the Nextcloud client itself, but also its dependencies… Why is there no 32-bit MinGW in qt6.0.1? | Qt Forum
