Das Release von ownCloud 6 ist keine Woche mehr entfernt. Der letzte Release Candidate ist veröffentlicht, die nächste Version klopft an der Tür. Dies gilt es gebührend zu feiern!
We just released the Beta 1 of the upcoming ownCloud 6 series! It is spiced up with two new features. The most exciting one is probably collaborative editing of ODF documents. However, I do not want to write about it, ownCloud Documents is already covered by Frank.
The other feature that just went inside is revamped LDAP settings in a wizard-like fashion. Now, the minimum number of required fields you need to fill in is *drumrolls* 3! Of course without loosing the flexibility you are used to. Providing the LDAP server host, a user DN and a password is usually enough. ownCloud will take care of everything else. Some settings will be suggested, you can just accept them, and more will be auto-detected.
Kubuntu 13.10 has been released a day before yesterday! Hooray!
I did an upgrade a little bit prior to the final release, and everything went smooth and works properly. There is just one thing where I needed to put hands on manually. This is my Apache (used for development only) configuration which seemed to be incompatible with the version brought with 13.10. This however is nothing Kubuntu specific, but related to all Ubuntu-flavours.
Last weekend I attended Ubucon, an Ubuntu user conference organized by the German Ubuntu community. I was giving a talk about, surprise, ownCloud. If you are interested in my talk, please find the slides in PDF on the program page. Beware, they are in German! Those who have seen my talk, please give your honest feedback on the Ubucon feedback page!
A detail that is not on the slides is that I was wearing my "I am the first one" Jolla T-Shirt (like this). It provoked the question about an ownCloud mobile client for SailfishOS. I want to answer it here as well.
ownCloud 5 Enterprise Edition, released earlier this month, is now available for Univention Corporate Server (UCS) – the innovative heart for the cost-effective operation and simpler administration of server applications and IT infrastructures. As before with previous ownCloud packages for UCS, ownCloud integrates it with the system's LDAP Directory and Configuration Registry (UCR). That means that the new LDAP features can also be (pre-)configured using UCR. For a good overview, we also have updated the documentation.
