Nextcloud 13.0.3 and 12.0.8 available


#1

Originally published at: https://nextcloud.com/blog/nextcloud-13.0.3-and-12.0.8-available/


Today we announce it is time to upgrade your Nextcloud servers: we have made minor updates with bug- and security fixes available. Customers can rely on the stand-by upgrade support from Nextcloud GmbH if needed.

This release comes with changes as part of our GDPR Compliance Kit which we announced last week, allowing you to link to an Imprint and Privacy Policy on the login page. Learn more about GDPR compliance in Nextcloud on nextcloud.com/gdpr.

This has been a busy week with updates. Consider it a birthday gift from your Nextcloud friends! Monday, we announced a major iOS client update and yesterday, Talk updates for Android and iOS made chat available on those platforms.

And not to forget: on Tuesday we opened registration and Call for Proposals for the Nextcloud Conference, which will take place the last week of August in Berlin!

Stay safe, UPGRADE!

Time to upgrade to 13!

If you have not yet migrated to Nextcloud 13, consider doing so! The release has proven to be extremely stable.

Of course, if you are maintaining a mission-critical Nextcloud system for your enterprise, it is still highly recommended that you get yourself some insurance (and job security… who gets blamed if the file handling system isn’t working as expected?). A hotline to the core Nextcloud developers is the best guarantee for reliable service for your users.

What is new?

Nextcloud 13.0.3 and 12.0.8 follow our usual schedule of bi-monthly releases, bringing a series of minor improvements to our stable releases. Note that Nextcloud 11 is no longer maintained publicly and if you are still on that release, you should upgrade to Nextcloud 12 or get access to security updates through a Nextcloud Subscription.

As always: don’t wait too long with upgrading! While we warn our customers in advance of upcoming maintenance releases and any security consequences they have to be aware off, a swift update is important for every user. Remember:

Privacy does not exist without security

This release comes with a little over 50 fixes and minor improvements, including:

  • IPv6 database host support
  • Improved OAuth compatibility
  • Improved logging
  • Better lock handling
  • Improved Workflow error handling
  • Support adding links to privacy policy and imprint
  • And more as always!

When will the updater warn me?

We will make these upgrades available in the coming days through the built in updater. As you are probably aware, we do staged roll-out to ensure we can catch issues before they affect everybody so it can take a bit longer for some systems than for others.

Why upgrade? Security and stability!

Our strategy is: big changes come in major releases. Minor releases are security and functionality bug fixes, not rewrites of major sub systems that risk user data! We also do extensive testing, both in our code base and by upgrading a series of real-world systems to the test versions. This ensures that upgrades to minor releases are painless and reliable. As the updates not only fix feature issues but also security problems, it is a bad idea to not upgrade!

This is, of course, also true for apps: keeping them updated has security benefits, besides the new features and other bug fixes.

If you are worried about the updates because you run a big, complex and important enterprise service, we can help. Nextcloud GmbH offers stand-by upgrade support to our customers, virtually guaranteeing a smooth process. This is one way in which we help our customers to keep their file sync and share systems functioning in optimal condition!

congrats on the 13.0.3 release!
I got my updated flagging me that the update was available in the GUI but the updater did stay on 13.0.2?
cheers, Jeroen


#3

Same here. I got the notification for version 13.0.3, but when I login into my nextcloud instance as admin I see the message:
Nextcloud 13.0.2
Your version is up to date.


#4

Same here. That’s strange

#6

Update to 13.0.3 was shown to me as a notification, but when i was trying to update via CLI it told me current Version was 13.0.2. The notification is also gone. What’s wrong here?


#7

Seems like the push for the 13.0.3 release was stopped (https://github.com/nextcloud/updater_server/commit/313f1ff152f57d3975bbd438d489834d04c0a788) due to https://github.com/nextcloud/server/pull/9802 .


Update Alert (13.0.2) but not update available
Nextcloud updater does not see the new update (13021 > 1303)
Update 13.02 to 13.02.1 failed
#8

There SHOULD be a short announcement then! Otherwise, there WILL be support tickets like these:




#9

Looks like 13.0.4 is out, unless this is a mistake?


#10

I got the same thing too in CLI updater and also shows version 13.0.4 in GUI


#11

Hi All,

Looks like Version 13.0.4 released June 11 2018


#12

Nicely found :sunglasses:


#13

Hello! Im from the future. Version 13.0.4 is flawless.

Just kidding: Updated successfully to version 13.0.4 without creating backups before (courageous mode on :smiley: ).

Looks like a bumb to prevent that someone gets the bug:


#14

That’s what stopping the rollout was for… though yeah, makes sense it’d re-release as a .4 rather than .3 as people had already installed it.
