First Nextcloud's version number


perhaps I’m crying over spilled milk here, but I need to ask anyway :-p

Why was version 9.0.50 chosen as a first version number?

Of all schemas possible, I think, this was one of the lesser good ones. I could have understood version numbers 9.0, 9.1, 1 and even 10 but taking into account that NC 9.0.50 is based on OC 9.1. Beta2 (if the info on github is correct:, it seems to make things unnecessarily complicated.

Or is it just me, making a mountain out of a molehill again? :smiley: (quite possibly)


It’s based on ownCloud 9.0, we use the stable9 branch for the current version. To stay compatible with apps and the appstore and allow proper updating we went with 9.0.50. Our next major release will be called 10 though :slight_smile:
