New in version 7.0.0 (July 29th, 2014)

  • Share More Than Ever:
  • First off – ownCloud 7 is about sharing: Server-to-server sharing makes collaboration between you and somebody on a different ownCloud installation as easy as on a public cloud, while still giving you the privacy and control of a private, hosted cloud.
  • Sharing is more flexible and transparent – files shared with you are no longer confined to a single “shared” folder and the Files app shows what files are shared by who. As administrator you have more control with options like disabling sharing for some user groups and ensuring shared links expire in a timely manner and are protected by passwords for others.
  • Faster, Easier and With More Control:
  • ownCloud 7 also delivers an improved user interface and faster responses, while introducing mobile web browser support. The new, powerful File Activity Notifications can be finely controlled and updates can be sent to you by mail, configured easily with the new Email Configuration.
  • If you manage an ownCloud, you will see improved User Management with easier group handling, search, filtering by group and a single, scrolling list putting all users at your finger tips. You can control access to External Storage by groups and decide how it counts towards the users’ storage limits and you can modify the Email Templates to control the communication of ownCloud to your users.

New in version 7.0.0 Beta (June 26th, 2014)

  • Performance, stability, ease of use but also better sharing, more management and control over your ownCloud and many features for developers to better and more easily build on and connect to ownCloud. All that needs love and attention from you, our user community, so we can fix the issues before the final release in July!
  • If you want to be sure that ownCloud 7 will work for the setup you have, this is the moment to jump in and test if it satisfies your needs. Especially if you have anything out of the ordinary – a Linux system with Apache, MySQL and PHP 5.3, large or many files, many users and so on, you should test before the release.

New in version 6.0.0 Beta 1 (October 30th, 2013)

  • When planning ownCloud 6, we decided to make the whole LDAP/AD setup easier – and we created the LDAP/AD configuration wizard. This wizard takes the basic owncloud account credentials and provides a smart mechanism for configuring filters, displaying the results of the filters and then automatically creating the query based on your GUI selections. Now you only need 3 settings to integrate ownCloud with LDAP or AD! Of course you can always configure it with more options – we did not remove the detailed configuration capabiliites – we just made it easier on ownCloud adminstrators.
