Yes, that means a minor feature was added - showing the status of the user in the UI. Give this a test, how does it look with your favorite status?

There is also a known issue with the virtual drive/replacement files:

on Windows, on a newly created syncing folder with VFS enabled, you might see the error “Error writing the metadata do the database”.

We don’t know yet what causes it and we’re debugging it. If you experience any other errors, please, let us know, that is the only way we can be sure everything works not only on our internal testing but also in real life, on your servers!

Wrong link, use Releases · nextcloud/desktop · GitHub instead and download the upcoming 3.2 client.

Good catch, fixed the link. Ppl can either download from github or our server…

Works much better than RC1, and even better than 3.1.3! Thank you
