Comment 2 Morgan Leijström 2017-06-24 13:38:43 CEST
There are "a ton of bugfixes", crash fixes, and lot more (i would suspect some security enhancement too)

(i could not find *nextcloud* client changelog but i guess it is same source still, + branding? )

Would be great if it could sneak in to mga6 release if not too late...

José ?
Comment 3 Zombie Ryushu 2017-06-24 13:43:28 CEST
Yes. The major difference seems to be that NextCloud works with KDE 5 Plasma Wallet while OwnCloud Client seems to use the KDE 4 Wallet. Which means Plasma users can use the Pam KDE 5 Wallet module to authenticate if they are using Kerberos.
Comment 4 Morgan Leijström 2017-06-24 13:48:08 CEST
BTW, is it possible to make it use its own logo for the Plasma system tray- same it use for the program ( oOo ) ?

Currently at least all Nextcloud, ownCloud, and Dropbox clients confusingly use same symbol, while i.e Syncthing thanfully use its own.

Mageia 6 has been released and NextCloud has not been updated.

We are now at the end of july and every time i log in, a popup window invites me to upgrade to NextCloud 2.3.1 using my distrib package tools. But there is still no 2.3.1 available.

Comment 6 José Jorge 2017-09-27 19:36:31 CEST
Mageia has a policy, it does not provide updates if they do not fix security or reproductible bugs.

If you read the client changelog at https://owncloud.org/changelog/desktop/ you will see there are lots of crashes in the first 2.3.x releases.

Still, we can provide it as a backport. If the maintainer agrees, I volunteers to do it.


Comment 7 David Walser 2017-09-27 20:36:49 CEST
We've updated owncloud-client to the latest stable before.  Compatibility with web services is one of reasons we make exceptions to the policy, so I think this qualifies.  You shouldn't need to do it as a backport.
Comment 8 Morgan Leijström 2017-09-27 22:30:20 CEST
I think it should have similar treatment as i.e Firefox.
Because of stability, compatibility, and security.
(and possibly the server part too)
