Today, we released the beta of Nextcloud 12. This release redefines Enterprise File Sync and Share, bringing it to the next level with built in collaboration and communication capabilities. The Beta builds on the scalability and reliability improvements introduced with Nextcloud 11, bringing a combined doubling of performance and far improved scalability over their predecessors. It also increases security another step with new, innovative hardenings and protections. The final Nextcloud 12 release is planned for 3 weeks from now.
With this beta Nextcloud introduces extensions to sharing with multiple individual public links for a single share, Global Shares, social sharing and more. Communication has been integrated deeper with a global contact menu and integrated user profiles and screen sharing in the Video calls app. Push notifications let you know of calls or other events in real time and the Circles app lets users manage groups of other users on their own. The App Store has also been improved and with over 60 maintained applications is the best place to get new functionality.
Working with others was also improved across servers, federating activities so you can see changes on remote shares in your activity feed through an implementation of the ActivityPub API developed by the W3C.
Read on to learn more about these and other innovative features extending the lead Nextcloud has in the open source file sync and share space!
