I’m afraid you still can’t read correctly. You asked why it doesn’t show up in stable channel. And I gave you a citation from official announcement where you can READ (and understand) follwoing keywords… “staged roll out”, “could take up to 6 weeks”, “in case of problems we stop rolling out”.
This fully answers your question.
untrue. There are users who are presented an upgrade via stable-channel. Just not you. For which reason ever.
Not at all. It was always like that.
This rollout behaviour of NC isn’t insane at all. It’s pretty well thought through and makes sense for the benefit of ALL users. It was discussed on this forum several times before.
Fasten your seatbelts: Here’s another hint on how you could shorten the time you need to wait to have the update in stable-channel. Download it directly from download.nextcloud.com and install in manually. If you are capable of doing that (with the help of the manual it shouldn’t be any problem) - and whatever you decide to do: don’t forget to take backups BEFORE updating/upgrading.
NC 23.0.0 is declared stable by definition. There has been several RC-versions which were tested ahead of release.
But of course no code is errorfree… And so it could happen that there might be even bigger glitches in the new code. If so they haven’t been found during betatesting. If it turns out that there really IS such a big error devs are gonna halt the rollout until it’s solved. Which is one of the reasons doing a so called staged rollout.
Anyways: NC 23.0.0 is considered to be “stable”.
