Nextcloud 9: A fork of Owncloud is Now Available To Download

by July 12, 2016 0 comments

Nextcloud makes available Nextcloud 9 along all enterprise functionality as open source. Building on top of the open source ownCloud core and adding functionality and fixes, this release provides a solid base for users to migrate to. All enterprise functionality users and customers need will be made available over the coming weeks, fully developed in the open and under the AGPL license. It supports both android and iOS platform as well.

Added functionality

This release introduces write-only upload to Nextcloud. Anonymous users can upload files in such a folder without being able to see or download other files already uploaded while the owner of the folder gets the usual notification and can see all files which have been uploaded. This offers a fast and secure way to let multiple customers or friends share files with you in a single shared folder.

Second, enterprise users will appreciate that this release introduces enterprise grade logging for activities like file sharing, updates, user logins and more. This enables admins to generate compliance reports or auditing information and they can feed the logs in enterprise tools and solutions like Splunk.

Hardening and stability

Besides these popular features, we made a number of improvements to the security of the code base, hardening it against potential attacks, and fixed a number of bugs, making sure an upgrade doesn’t leave the installation in a broken state.


The client app is available for Android users on the Google Play store and the F-Droid store. For iOS users is on App store .
