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.
Administrators can create Global Shares for users. These make a shared folder structure available for different groups on a server. It can be helpful for organizations which want to integrate their existing Samba or Windows Server shares in Nextcloud, assigning specific external storages to groups.
Does this mean the SMB problems will be fixed in NC12? I think there was a submitted fix for syncing SMB/Samba changes with Nextcloud months ago, but it doesn’t seem to have made it into 11.0.3
the updater app caches the state on the server, it doesn’t check every minute. So it might take some time. Switching to Daily and back to Beta (with a page reload in between) should help get your fix right away
Our updates are ‘staged’. We start with giving the new release to 10% of the users, then 20% and so on. If you’re unlucky you get the next version much later than the lucky ones
There’s no documentation atm, but it is simply a folder you create which is automatically shared with the group that you select.
WRT to what is downloaded by default, it depends on how ppl install the client. If they choose to download all their files you can’t configure on the central server that some should not be downloaded. I would always recommend users to only sync specific folders on their Nextcloud with specific local folders but I can’t tell ppl what to do
Hi, I think i’ve found a visualization problem.
If I click on an existing file, I click on the “tab” sharing and add a txt file from the + the file is displayed 2 times but does not actually exist. If I reload the page, the second file disappears.
