Nextcloud Android client 3.4.0 RC1 is out

#1

Hi everybody,

we are happy to announce the first release candidate for the upcoming Android release. It has already been uploaded to the Play store and should show up in the next couple of hours. As for the f-droid RC release, we published the PR but the publishing by f-droid might take some time.

Features you will get with this release are:

  • hide download when creating share links
  • direct editing files with Collabora (Collabora Server >=4.0)
  • sort deleted files by deletion date by default
  • set/edit notes on shares
  • search inside of text files
  • actions on notifications
  • remember last path on upload
  • share file to Talk room
  • show local size in “on device” view
  • bug fixes

For a detailed list, please visit: https://github.com/nextcloud/android/milestone/25

Grab the app via google play store as a beta tester: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.nextcloud.client or later on Fdroid. !:robot:

Happy testing and if you find any issue please report back to us on https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues to resolve these. :slight_smile:

We are also still lacking some translations, so if you have some time to spare, that would really help us bringing the client to the users in as many languages as possible :slight_smile: https://www.transifex.com/nextcloud/nextcloud/android/

Thanks!!!

That sounds awesome! :heart_eyes:
The current CODE version is 3.4.2 though.
Is there already a release date for CODE 4.0?

That I don’t know, maybe @tobiasKaminsky knows something about that but I guess it might be something which related to Nextcloud 15. Maybe @jospoortvliet knows more about this. :slight_smile:

Hello @Andy!

what does “direct editing files with Collabora” exactly mean?

Is the same feature planed with onlyoffice, too?

Thanks!

@darioce CODE 4.0 is expected within this month, see https://github.com/nextcloud/android/pull/3311#issuecomment-444012397

what does “direct editing files with Collabora” exactly mean?

@jakob1 it means the Android client will open a webview (from the servers web UI) so you can edit the files supported by Collabora.

Is the same feature planed with onlyoffice, too?

I don’t know. I has been implemented for Collabora since it supports this in a nice way with CODE 4.0. As for onlyoffice I don’t know. This would be something to ask @tobiasKaminsky or @jospoortvliet maybe.

CODE 4.0 is exptected to be available in mid/end of December.
As we release our stable version in ~2 weeks, this should fit quite well.

@jakob1 the integration needs to have some special bindings, e.g. when you click on sharing within collabora, the android sharing dialog should be shown.
So this is currently only available for Collabora.
