For everyone, you can find the links to download the RC1 here:
Obviously this is worth a look and may be the opportunity for the more adventurous user to identify issues for your OS environment at your convencience. However, be warned this is ALPHA
BETA phase apparently and funny things can happen.
Please think first, act second only and always have the protection of your data in mind.

Mac OS X / macOS trials
Please consider the availability and security of the NC server and the data in your NC cloud storage should matter most. It may be advisable to use a more safer environment and not a productive cloud install if possible.
Please note the availabilty of the NC Issue Template App which could help in producing more detailed reports when issues are found.
Before starting some of the more ambitious trials consider to make more extensive logs available by starting the NC desktop app from the command-line (CLI) such as:
Use the Apple Terminal for CLI input and a special GUI window will open:
$ /Applications/nextcloud.app/Contents/MacOS/nextcloud --logwindow
NOTE: Keep the Apple Terminal window open as long as you are using the NC desktop app called by the a.m. command.
Naturally, one may stop i.e. ‘quit’ the installed standard NC desktop app to intentionally start a specific NC desktop trial app version instead of the a.m. standard app by help of the a.m. command.

Furthermore, when using the Nextcloud desktop v2.6.1-rc1 app beware of some of the ‘funny’ things which happended during my trials:
NOTE: When you’re working in Terminal, you don’t have a Trash Can to which deleted files are moved pending ultimate disposal. Delete it, and it’s gone. In general, UN*X (like most mature operating systems at CLI level and for good reasons) has no Undo function.
Hope this helps.
