Proper Updater for NextCloud

Hey, I’m coming here cos OC is a mess when it comes to updating.
The Updater only has the files after weeks sometimes and the quality is horrible.

Don’t make the same mistakes ! Create a proper updater which does offer the update when its available from the website.

In fact we already have a branch here: https://github.com/nextcloud/updater/tree/add-simplified-updater

The team have already stated publicly that making updates via the updater work better is one of their primary priorities, so I think we’re in good hands. :wink:

IMHO

If you want to try the new updater and help with it’s improvement (no coding required) take a look at:
