Software update: Nextcloud 12.0.7 / 13.0.2


Nextcloud has released updates for versions 12 and 13 of their eponymous software. With this program it is possible to run cloud storage in-house. Nextcloud arose after a large number of developers at ownCloud have run away and started again. All components, including enterprise functionality, are offered as open source and the earnings model is equal to what Red Hat does, namely providing paid support for large customers. Nextcloud also promises a so-called drop-in replacement, which makes it possible to easily switch from ownCloud to Nextcloud.
In version 13, the user interface has been refreshed, making it more responsive and looking better at high resolutions. Furthermore ldap has become a lot faster and we see the introduction of Nextcloud Talk an audio video and text communication platform. The release notes for this update can be found below.
